http://t.co/WHxEjfLm. A fabulous discussion of the Pirates by Rany and Joe (the first half of the podcast). Why they're better than last year, clearly more legit, but still not likely to win the division. How they have (miraculously) gone from one of the worst defensive teams to the best in NL, while changing few players; mainly Barmes at shortstop. And if they could just add a couple of league average players at shortstop and corner OF, it would be a large upgrade to their offense.
