I’ve never had any interaction with Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects, aside from him passive-aggressively claiming that “nobody reads” isportsweb after I questioned the accuracy of an article from one of his contributors on Twitter.  And to Tim’s credit, he runs a regularly updated Pirates page with some useful player information, podcasts and interviews featuring personnel...
