The way Pirates manager Clint Hurdle sees it, Pedro Alvarez never has been better. Look past the .229 batting average, because it doesn't really tell the story.

Pittsburgh Pirates: Pedro Alvarez- What is he?

(Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug) About a week ago, my friend Brian told me over e-mail that Pittsburgh Pirates’ 3B Pedro Alvarez was a “terrible hitter.”  I threatened to punch Brian in the face, not because I condone violence, but because Brian needs to know that there are consequences attached to making such outlandish statements.
