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.
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.
