Pat Sounds Off on Steve Pearce’s Demotion

Steve Pearce

The comparisons between newest Pirates GM Neal Huntington and not dearly departed former GM David Littlefield are flying with the recent demotion of Steve Pearce.

Pearce may not be the best prospect in the world, but he is 25 and has little to nothing to prove in Indianapolis.

Because of that, it’s easy to connect the two GMs, since basically, it’s the Pirates choosing a mediocre veteran over the higher potential of an unknown prospect. It’s been the Pirates’ motus operandi for so long.

Pat at WHYGAVS expresses his displeasure very clearly.

To put things simply, the next Pittsburgh Pirate team that plays meaningful baseball after the All-Star break almost certainly won’t have Xavier Nady on it, but it might have Steve Pearce. Because of that, there’s no reason to play Nady over Pearce, whether there’s a buyer for Nady or not.

MLB Round-Up from DoublePlay TV

The second episode of the MLB Round-Up program from DoublePlay TV dedicates a lot of air time to the Cubs, plus fantasy baseball and a bunch of other stuff baseball fans love. This program is definitely moving in the right direction.

DoublePlay TV is asking for feedback, so I’m including a poll. If you’ve got any great ideas for future content, leave them in the comments.
