Friday Notes...

Baseball Stuff...

  • Johnah Keri of Grantland suggested it, and Travis Sawchik of the Tribune Review explored it in a little more detail, "it" being a Gerrit Cole contract extension.
  • Pittsburgh Magazine's Pittsburgher of the Year? How about the Pittsburgh Pirates? Check it out; there's also a sidebar Bucco article in the issue by Tom Singer.
  • Joe Lucia of The Outside Corner thinks that Edison Volquez's one-year contract is one of the riskier ones of the off season, adding that "If he's able to put together a season comparable to Jeff Locke's 1.1 fWAR of 2013, the Pirates should be satisfied..."
  • Roger Schlueter of takes note that Cutch is in some elite company now historically.
  • Matthew Kory of Sports on Earth selects the Pirate playoff win against the Reds as one of the Top Ten Moments of the 2013 season. We agree.
  • Ol' Bucco reliever Daniel McCutchen has caught on with the Rangers. Pirate backup of yore, OF Xavier Paul, has inked a deal with the Orioles.
  • Mike White of the Post Gazette has the rundown on local high school players who went Division One this year.
