Pirates Ranked 5th Best Farm System & Clemente Documentary

  • John Sickels ranked Pirate’s the 5th best farm system. They were 12th last year so nice to see the jump.
  • Here is what he had to say,” System improving rapidly. Strengths: high upside pitching arms (Cole, Taillon, Heredia) with depth to back them up, lots of C+ types. Breakthrough seasons from Alen Hanson and Gregory Polanco point to improvement in Latin American acquisitions. Weaknesses: big investments in high school pitching have not paid off. More hitting depth would be helpful.”
  • ESPN is going to do a new documentary regarding Clemente. Here is the preview. Have not seen when it is going to be released yet but it is going to be something special.
  • For some reason, the Pirates were interested in Freddy Garcia  tweets Jerry Crasnick. I’m assuming they offered him a minor league deal like the Padres did and he chose San Diego.
