Pitchers & Catchers Report. Those four words make me so happy. I hate the offseason blues and they are offically OVER!
Actually Pitchers & Catchers reported 3 days ago but I’ve been having computer problems so this has been my first oppurtunity to make a post.
As you probally know by now Joel Hanrahan was put on the DL due to an elbow injury. Of course I follow him on Twitter (@hanrahan4457) He did tweet about it
If you not already following him, Do so! Also, Paul Maholm @Maholm28 and Daniel McCutchen @DanielMcCutchen are also on Twitter
Hanrahan could be out anywhere from 2 weeks to months. I wish him a speedy and healthy recovery. He is a big part of then pen.
Another great person to follow on Twitter is @RobBiertempfel He is down in Bradenton (lucky guy) and had a lot of interesting tweets over the past few days.
@RobBiertempfel Talking w/#pirates mgr John Russell, it sounds like Kevin Hart will be No. 5 pitcher:”He’s in good position. He’s throwing real well.”
@RobBiertempfel #Pirates Neil Walker update: he fielded grounders today @ a new position, 2B “I’m going to try them all,” walker told me.
@RobBiertempfel If hart has No. 5 job, daniel McCutchen likely will open season in bullpen
@RobBiertempfel Sanguillen likes Tony Sanchez’s work behind plate. “I like his attitude. He has a chance to make this team.” Hmm … perhaps 2011?
@RobBiertempfel Garrett Jones broke 2 car windshields with HRs in 3-pitch span yesterday during batting practice
Baseball Prospectus published the Pirates top 11 Prospects:
It’s exciting to see and read everything that’s going on down there in Florida, but I’m super jealous I can’t be there! I was planning on going down for 5 days in mid March, but as of right now I don’t think I will be going. Too much $$!
