We begin another week here at Inside the Bucs Basement and real baseball is ramping up this week as pitchers and catchers report for their first workout on Wednesday. Normal is a relative term but it figures to be a lot closer than 2020 was at the very least.
So, let’s have some fun talking Buccos!
It feels like we just flipped the calendar to 2021 and here we are in February already. We should be ramping up for and starting to cover the pitchers and catchers as they report to Spring Training, but of course MLB is still arguing this out.
Another eventful week has passed in Pittsburgh as we say goodbye to Jameson Taillon quickly following Joe Musgrove’s exit. It’s hard to get excited about seeing Jamo head to the Bronx, but for what the Pirates are trying to get done, it also makes sense.
We’ve had just a terrific week of conversation with most of you last week and I’m truly looking forward to another as baseball inches closer to a return and news starts to pick up.
The Calendar turned and no new moves were made to the Pittsburgh Pirates Roster but activity still swirls around the league.
Probably the last Five Thoughts of 2020
Howdy everyone! Wanted to get some more thoughts out there today as we head into the last weekend before the Big Day! MLB in general has been quiet, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to talk about. As always, reach out on any platform Craig and I would love to get your take.
The Pirates finally made some moves this week as the Rule Five Draft provided some much needed depth for the club. Here are some other topics floating around in my head as the rumor mill quickly goes back to near silent.
Sometimes the best way I can think of to kick off another week of Pirates coverage is to get some topics off my head and out to you. The conversations we have really give me insight into what you want to read about, what interests you and the topic format really get’s us talking.
