Was just noticing last night's line-up in the Pirates game featured just Andrew McCutchen and Ronny Cedeno (and Jeff Karstens) who were on the team last year.
And it made me look to see where the current 25-man roster Buccos were just one year ago (June 30, 2010)....
Ronny Cedeno - Pirates starting shortstop
Garrett Jones - Pirates starting 1B
Andrew McCutchen - Pirates starting CF
Joel Hanarahan - Pirates bullpen
Jeff Karstens, Paul Maholm and Daniel McCutchen - Pirates rotation
Neil Walker - just finished his first month in the big leagues by getting a concussion running into Ryan Church, resting on the bench, day-to-day
Kevin Correia - Padres rotation
Jose Veras and Tim Wood - Marlins bullpen
Lyle Overbay - Blue Jays starting 1B
Brandon Wood - Angels - starting to get a good bit of starts at SS & 3B
Matt Diaz - just rejoined the Braves after being out with his thumb surgery
Charlie Morton - Indianapolis rotation (AAA)
Daniel Moskos and Alex Presley - just got promoted to Indy within the last few days (AAA)
Tony Watson - Altoona bullpen (AA)
Chase d'Arnaud and Josh Harrison - Altoona (AA)
Eric Fryer - Bradenton Marauders (A+)
Mike McKenry - Colorado Springs (AAA)
Chris Resop - Gwinnett Braves (AAA) rotation
James McDonald - just pitched a rehab game at the Dodgers Arizona Rookie League before returning to Albuquerque (AAA)
Xavier Paul - Albuquerque (AAA) - just a few days away from being called up to be the Dodgers starting LF when Manny Ramirez got suspended for 50 games.
Wow, it's been quite a year!!
