Links: Pirates win praise

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

-P- ESPN (Insider-only) ranks the Pirates' rotation the fifth-best in the majors, which seems awfully generous, given that Edinson Volquez and Jeff Locke (or Wandy Rodriguez? Who knows) currently occupy the last two spots, and that a lot of the rotation's success last year was a product of their defense and home ballpark. Fortunately, the Pirates' defense will mostly still be in place in 2014, and so will PNC Park.

-P- Former Mariners GM Bill Bavasi says he "just blew it" with the Shin-Soo Choo trade.

-P- Bob Nutting is Pittsburgh Business Times' Newsmaker of the Year. This follows Pittsburgh Magazine naming the Pirates the Pittsburghers of the Year.
