Right now, I think the Pirates should trade Ad. LaRoche, Capps, and Grabow for some young pitchers. Possibly B- / C+ prospects. Hopefully at least one B- position player, and 2 or 3 C+ pitching prospects.

Though I think its not likely to happen, the Mets, Giants, and Rangers need the three players I listed. The Giants/Mets need a power hitting first baseman, and the Rangers need some bullpen help. I hope Huntington can produce some good trades.

Also, I have been impressed with Ohlendorf lately, he has been consistant, and has shown a glimmer of talent at times (Cubs game where he had 8 k's and 0 er)

I have been impressed with Mortons performance. His movements on his pitches are awesome. His 2 Seam Fastball, Sinker, and Breaking ball have so much movement, he is confusing the Marlins hitters.

just turned on the radio and listening to it now. glad to hear Morton is pitching well, he has pitched well in just about every one of his starts, despite what some of his numbers may show

McCutchen barely missed a 3 run home run...

But McCutchen, and Wilson both drove in 3 runs, good enough.

I don't understand why McCutchen doesn't run more. Everytime he gets on 1st he should be running.

Maybe it has something to do with confidence? IDK but he should be running.

Charlie Morton has some of the nastiest stuff I've ever seen in a Pirates pitcher. I mean, the ball moves all over the place. If he can get a little better control, he will be absolutely lights-out.

As for McCutchen, I'm not sure why he's not running more. Maybe he's being held back a bit by the coaching staff? If so, they're dumb - turn the guy loose.

numbers look worse because Russell has been conservative with him, he hasnt pitched more than 6 innings until last night.

I wanna see him pitch more. His stuff is nasty as X has posted. IF Morton turns into an Ace material pitcher, Huntington will look like a genious, especially since McLouth isnt performing well this year, especially with Atlanta.

Patel, Singh make debuts in GCL

http://pittsburgh.pirates.mlb.com/ne...=.jsp&c_id=pit

Quote:
Indian-born pitchers Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh made their American professional debuts on Saturday with Pittsburgh's rookie-level Gulf Coast League Pirates.

The two pitchers each threw an inning in relief in a game against the Gulf Coast League Yankees in Bradenton, Fla.

Singh, a left-hander, allowed two hits and one run in one inning, striking out one and throwing 19 pitches.

Patel didn't even allow a baserunner in his one inning, needing just eight pitches to get three outs. The right-hander also struck out a batter.

The two former cricket players, who are both 20 years old, appeared on the reality TV program "The Million Dollar Arm" in their home country. Singh won the contest, a $100,000 prize and the chance to train with former Major League pitching coach Tom House in the U.S. Patel was so impressive as well that he also got an invite to the United States and an opportunity to try out for Major League scouts, which led to the pair signing with Pittsburgh last November.

Trading Sanchez would be a mistake, since they really don't have a viable 2nd baseman behind him. Not entirely thrilled with the prospect of Ramon Vazquez playing the rest of the season at 2nd.

Don't care if they trade either Capps or Grabow, honestly.
