Read this: David Laurila interviews Greg Smith

At FanGraphs, David Laurila has a very interesting interview with Pirates’ scouting director Greg Smith, with a lot of talk about Josh Bell and the future of the draft going forwards. Definitely an interesting read worth your time. 

The Pirates have four prospects in Baseball America’s Top 100.

Pirates Prospects is releasing their annual in the very near future. Matt Bandi is celebrating by liveblogging his VHS tapes of the 1988, 1990, and 1991 Pirates. I expect this will be as awesome as it sounds.

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
