Pirates Notes

Here are our brief thoughts four games into the season:

  • The pitching has been outstanding, especially the starters.
  • Hurdle needs to quit trying to outsmart himself with lineup choices.  I’m in the minority, but I think Tabata should bat 2nd, Walker 5th, and Jones/Sanchez 6th.
  • I am glad to see McCutchen running as much as he is.  I wasn’t upset he tried stealing 2nd in the 8th down by three.  If we could manufacture a run in that inning, then we stood a better chance of tying/winning in the 9th.
  • Pedro Alvarez has been playing well defensively.
  • I must quietly have more confidence in this team than year’s past because I normally freak out over losses to the proportion that I feel it ensures another losing season.  No freak outs yet.
