Tim really takes apart Dejan's recent arguments that the Pirates' farm system isn't much improved. The thrashing includes Tim pointing out such egregious factual errors as Dejan's claim that Littlefield had only five drafts and not six, and his claim that McClatchy forced Littlefield to draft Bryan Bullington instead of the guy Littlefield supposedly wanted, Clayton Kershaw. (Kershaw was 14 years old when Bullington was drafted.) Not sure what the explanation for Dan Moskos is. Maybe Nutting forced Littlefield to draft him instead of Mike Schmidt. Dejan also seems to think the Pirates originally signed Ronald Belisario, when in fact Littlefield acquired him as a minor league free agent after he'd been with the Marlins for six years and never promoted him past AA.
It's interesting that Dejan likes to point to BA as minor league experts when they have anything critical to say about the Pirates, but the recent puzzlement of Ben Badler, one of BA's main writers, over the complaints about the system in the Pittsburgh media doesn't seem to have registered on Dejan.
