Just a reminder to everyone that week one of the Arizona Fall League is in the books. The site’s AFL page is updated daily with how the Pirates’ prospects are doing.
If you haven’t gotten a chance, take a listen to the RumBunter Podcast from last week, where Clint Hurdle joins as a guest to discuss the Pirates’ late season collapse.
It was already known, but it is now official that ex-Pirates hitting coach Gregg Ritchie will be the new head coach of George Washinton University.
Alex Speier of Boston’s WEEI has an interesting article about how A.J. Burnett being traded saved the Yankees’ postseason. It was written before they fell down 2-0 to the Tigers in the ALCS, obviously.
