Season Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates


The 2011 campaign (72-90) was one Pirates fans can finally say that their team may be coming back, slowly, but surely. In fact, Pittsburgh was above .500 on June 24, which may not seem significant for some, but for Pirates fans it was the latest the team has been over .500 in the season since 1999. They were in the thick of the playoff race going into the All-Star Break, but then struggled down the stretch, finishing fourth in the NL Central. However, for Bucs fans, there is much to take away from this. For instance, Andrew McCutchen (.256/.364/.456) is a bonafide star. For Pirates fans, they probably already knew that and argue that this was the worst of his three seasons offensively with the club, but a closer look reveals it was actually his best (5.7 WAR in 2011, compared to 3.5 and 3.7 in 2009 and 2010, respectively) as an all-around player. He improved his glovework, which helped him post his first positive UZR/150 season (3.3) since entering the league. At a premium position in center field, McCutchen is definitely a player the Pirates need to carry them going forward.

The Draft is Tomorrow


With all due respect to Pat, who I think is dead-on in his writing about 99% of the time, there are a number of assertions I disagree with here (like the notion that the phrase "five-tool" doesn't...
