Slow news day:
-The Beaver County Times can't get enough of local boy Josh Sharpless.
-Brian Meadows signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers.
-Here's a feature on Andrew McCutchen.
-Dave Littlefield visited my hometown this week. My dad was there, and he introduced himself to Littlefield. My dad was impressed when Littlefield walked by him later and remembered his name. These are the sorts of things that encourage the extreme cynicism of certain Pirates fans, like myself. Littlefield obviously can't be a complete moron, and yet his moves have been terrible, and the results speak for themselves. He's too smart to not know that the moves he's making are bad for the team.
