Happy New Years/Notes

Happy New Years and a couple of notes to start the season...

  • Buster Olney of ESPN (behind a subscriber wall) says the Pirates are the #10 team heading into 2014 and may be a fit in Kendrys Morales, the rumor that just won't die. 
  • The Bleacher Report's Andrew Gould predicts that Gerrit Cole could be 2014's version of Matt Harvey.
  • At Fangraphs, Jeff Sullivan explores PNC Park's effect on the three true outcomes: walks, strikeouts, and home runs, influencing them more than any park in MLB.
  • ESPN's Mark Simon looks at the defensive impact of this year's hot stove moves around the league, and likes what the Pirates have done.
