Brad Lincoln – Yankee Hunter

By now you’ve read that the Pirates are allowing Brad Lincoln to explore the wonders of Yonge Street and Casa Loma in Toronto in exchange for giving Travis Snider the opportunity to eat at Primanti’s and gape in awe at Fallingwater. My snap reaction is that I would have loved this trade in 2010 for the Pirates.  Taking away the context, the Pirates traded a reliever for a young...

First Pitch: The Pirates Had the Right Deadline Strategy

There are a lot of extremely short-sighted opinions on the trade deadline out there today. People wanted the Pirates to make a big splash. Deal prospects away, if that’s what it takes, but go for it all this year. Worry about future years when they come. This is all that matters. Small moves don’t help. Only big moves can truly lead to a contender. That’s a dumb way to run...

Over the course of the last week the Pirates have won five games, but I've been saying ad nauseum that they haven't really played that well. Part of the reason for that is that they've been winning close games while leaving tons of runners on base and most of their wins have felt like they more stumbled into them than beat their opponents.
