Post-Draft Charts - Anything Interesting with our Pitching Staff?


Here are the pitchers.  As always, I take a broad-brush approach – the 1 and 2 slots are for pitchers we think (hope) will dominate opposing teams, the 3rd and 4th starters are slightly above-average to break-even guys, and we hope the 5th starter is competent.  Notice that there are a lot of names making waves in the minors right now who don’t even make the chart.  The Pirates appear to have a minor league system that can now be justifiably confident in its depth.  Once again, if these pitchers pan out (no jinx!), the team might have the wonderful problem of choosing between Rudy Owens or Bryan Morris or Tim Alderson as our 4th or 5th starter.
