Hot Stove Trolling, Notes...

Profiles of some potential 2014 Pirates...

  • Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects has a "Player Rewind" of RHP Tyler Glasnow.
  • Tom Singer of checks out the return of RHP Phil Irwin, now working in the Arizona League after losing the 2013 season to surgery.
  • Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors looks at FA 1B James Loney of Tampa. As an added twig to toss into the fire, he switched reps and went to Legacy Sports, which is Francisco Liriano's group (although they have different agents).
  • Dave Cameron of Fangraphs doesn't agree that FA 1B Kendrys Morales of the Mariners is all that.
  • Ken Davidoff of the NY Post predicts AJ will sign with the Bucs for one year/$11M and so will Marlon Byrd, for one year/$8M. He rates them as Top-25 Free Agents this season.
  • Cliff Corcoran of Sports Illustrated has a Hot Stove preview of the Buccos and the NL Central.
  • Russ Martin was selected as the Wilson Defensive Player of the Year for the Pirates.
  • Do you recall two-sport star Pirate OF'er Tyler Gaffney, who left the Bucs and returned to Stanford for his senior year? He rushed for 157 yards against Oregon last night.
