Spring Training Begins

Pitchers and catchers have reported, and the Pirates are ringing in the new year by hiring an advance scout. This is exciting news in the way that being allowed to remove the training wheels from your bike at age fourteen would be exciting news.

By the way - I don't know why the Pirates decided to finally hire an advance scout, but it may not be a coincidence that it happened only a few months after Dejan Kovacevic of the Post-Gazette reported that the Pirates didn't have one. Kudos to Kovacevic for blowing the whistle.
