From Baseball Tonight last night:
“And I’ve been told by people within the Pirates organization they are going to get a bat. Either an outfielder or a first baseman…They are not fooling around. After all these years under .500, they have a chance to make the playoffs. They are going to go for it.”
Kurkjian sounded pretty emphatic during the segment as you can hear from the YouTube video below. He also claims he heard this from the Pirates themselves.
