A Tale of Destiny and Fate: Ken Carr, Indians Photographer

Ken Carr was an individual I knew I’d never forget. From his customary safari hat to his down-to-earth demeanor, he made an immediate impression on me when our paths first crossed at Canal Park in 2009. I then made my first drive over to Carr’s house in 2010. At the time, I was helping the Akron Aeros finish their production of team baseball cards, and was simply told that he...

Heading Home

Just a few observations from Monday morning at Pirate City, as I’m heading home now: – Erik Bedard is wearing a knee brace, which I wasn’t aware of until Tom Smith noticed it this morning. – Most of the pitchers seem a bit wild.  I’ve never been to spring training this early, so I’m guessing this is typical.  During live BP the hitters generally don’t swing much....

Minor League Depth — Catcher

This is the first of a series covering the Pirates’ minor league depth position by position. The idea is to take a look at the players the system has available at a position, level by level. No organization has prospects at every position and every level. It’s interesting to see just how well the Pirates are covered at each spot by players who at least have some chance to turn...
