Snow and Ice and Notes...

And the wheel keeps on rollin'...though it might need chains today!
  • David Weirs of Fangraphs takes a look at the Bucco bullpen while Mike Pordhozer examines the starters. Matthew Pouliot of Hardball Talk ranks the rotation in the middle of the NL pack.
  • Cliff Corcoran of Sports Illustrated told the 93.7 crew that the Pirates get an F grade for the off season. In a like vein, Jorge Ortiz of USA Today rates the Bucs among MLB's biggest losers during the Hot Stove days.
  • Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus has the Bucs Top Ten prospects.
  • Jim Callis of picked Jameson Taillon/Tyler Glasnow as the third best pitching combo in the minors. He adds that Jonathan Mayo believes they're the top duo. 
  • Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects has completed his list of this year's Top 20 Pirate Prospects
  • Battling Bucs has a series on Pittsburgh All-Era teams, and opens with the pre-1900 picks.
  • Ex-Bucs: Kyle Farnsworth signed a minor league deal with a camp invite with the Mets. Joel Hanrahan is reportedly on the Mets radar, too. Brian Burres, after a year in Japan, is trying to get back to the show with a showcase outing. Matt Diaz hung 'em up.

Thank you for the link to my piece. I'm trying to get back into blogging shape. The All Era series and my minors review series are my way of trying to do just that. I consider it a warm up for the regular season.
