Pittsburgh Pirates: Josh Harrison is the true MVP

Photo credit: Post GazetteIt seems like the obvious choice for the Pittsburgh Pirate’s MVP would be center-fielder Andrew McCutchen, but Josh Harrison has been just as important to the club, if not more. Harrison is just an utility player and a fine one at that. He was never really given a shot at starting every day until this May and he has earned his keep. The 27-year-old utility...
