A look at what’s going on at a few Pittsburgh Pirates blogs as the Mets prepare to batten down their hatches and visit Pittsburgh for a 4 game series:
At Bucs Dugout they go over which Pirates relief pitchers may soon walk the plank, and point out that OF Nyjer Morgan has the best UZR of any player in baseball.
At Pittsburgh Lumber Co. they discuss Astros pitcher Mike Hampton’s continued scuttling of the Pirates, which he demonstrated again on Sunday.
