Another Pirates Preview

Batters' Box's Pirates Preview is a little bit kinder than mine was. Writer Craig Burley likes the Pirates' defense.

[Sean Casey, Jeromy Burnitz and Joe Randa] have pretty good defensive reputations, and with the best of the existing defenders (Castillo, Wilson and Bay) sticking around, the Bucs should flash the leather pretty well assuming that centerfielder Chris Duffy can handle the job.

This makes me wonder whether Burley was able to watch Duffy during his brief time with the Bucs last year. Health permitting, he can pretty clearly "handle the job" and then some.
