On Tuesday’s edition of Front Burner on MLB Network, the Analysts named their ‘best ballparks in major league baseball’. Harold Reynolds and Billy Ripken had great things to say about PNC Park.
Reynolds: “The best ballpark for me, believe it or not, is Pittsburgh. PNC Park is beautiful…You got the bridge. The ballpark is a stone throw away from the hotels that are right around the area. I think its phenomenal. I was there for the All-star game, called a couple games there. I really like that ballpark.”
Ripken: “I saw it there as well [All-star game]. And it’s a shame that Pittsburgh has kind of been away from us for a while, as far as the baseball team is concerned. The tradition of the Pirates and the history of the Pirates, that ballpark is incredible. That’s a nick pick right there.”
On Tuesday night’s edition of Front Burner on MLB Network, Ken Rosenthal (MLB Network Insider and FOX Sports Reporter) named Pirates Andrew McCutchen as the ‘Best Center Fielder -Right Now’.
“I’ll go with the guy that no one talks about because he plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates. That would be Andrew McCutchen. People don’t realize how good a player this kid is becoming and is already. Last year amongst center fielders, fourth in OPS behind Torii Hunter (who no longer is a center fielder), Vernon Wells and Colby Rasmus. McCutchen Is a guy who is a five tool talent; stole 33 bases last year. We’re going to hear a lot more about him in the years ahead and frankly, we should be hearing about him now.”
