I’d imagine both coaches had to blow off some steam after this one. An error filled disaster of a baseball game on both sides of the diamond. So it was an odd night to have Kevin Young in the booth talking about defense and the importance of it in the system.
First of all I’m as guilty as anyone. I feel like I’ve spent the past two or three months playing the short sample size police, but I have not been so kind to the coach.
No, I’m not going to go ape on Derek Shelton and blast his resume. I’m not going to assume close to 20 games is enough to form fact-based opinion on the capabilities of the man. I will say, so far, he hasn’t done a good job.
Before the Pirates latest contest against the Indians in Cleveland on Sunday, I decided to watch some MLB network and I was pleasantly surprised to see Joe Musgrove was going to be interviewed about being named the opening day starter for the Bucs.
