Five Pirates Thoughts at Five

Busy weekend. I typically try to write at least one piece over the weekend but this one I just couldn’t make it work. Then again, why should I care more than a team still employing Josh VanMeter and still digging around on waiver wires and AAA trade boards to find guys like Jose Godoy, oh, I mean “This Catcher”? I just refuse to learn a 59th name.

Endy Rodriguez and Dariel Lopez continue to impress. And I’m really not sure what else either of the two can prove in Greensboro? I get Endy is a catcher and catchers usually take a little longer and I will confess that I am not privy (obviously) to what the Bucs front office wants to see Endy work on as far as his defense goes.

What a weird time to be writing one of these. I mean, it’s Monday, it’s 5:00 PM, but there is just so much uncertainty out there what with the trade deadline tomorrow. I mean I could turn this into a prediction piece, maybe it’ll wind up one of those where I have to add a 6th or 7th point because trades won’t quit rolling in.
