Working on Futilitywatch right now (will link when it goes live), then hanging out in Hermitage this afternoon before going to Meadville tonight for another rehearsal dinner, another wedding and (gulp) another tux tomorrow. Game threads are actually scheduled as promised this weekeend, and I will be around on Sunday should any historic events take place that day, so no worries. Until then, links!
WTM took some pictures of the Lynchburg Hillcats. They were actually in Winston-Salem last weekend, but given my hectic travel schedule of late I decided to sit that one out. Next year, with what will hopefully be a much less-busy summer, I'm going to do my best to see as many of the Pirates' affiliates as possible.
Also at Bucs Dugout, Dan Szymborski posts the ZiPS projections for Garrett Jones' next few seasons. And while we're on the subject of Jones, Chuck Finder has a great piece about "the Legend" in the PG today. Though when people call him "the Legend" it makes me think of The Natural and by extension, this guy.
Lastings Milledge's last 16 games: .398/.458/.596.
Now please refocus all of your energies into the helping the Pirates win four games against the Cardinals and Cubs in the coming week, so as to not set the worst record in sports against Tony Frickin' La Russa or 10,000 Cubs fans at PNC Park.
