Pirates Breakfast Caffeine


Pirates owner Bob Nutting will speak to the team in a closed door meeting this morning.

Joe Beimel isn’t humble when it comes to talking about his pickoff move.

“My pickoff move is outstanding, I believe it’s one of the best in the league,”

 

We were intrigued when the Pittsburgh Pirates traded for Corey Wimberly this offseason.  Here was our Seven Things post on the insanely athletic Wimberly:

 

This is what Clint Hurdle had to say about the man who can defy gravity in Jennifer Langosch’s Daily Squeeze.

“This could be Corey’s time. That’s why we went out and got him. We had talked him in a couple different avenues over the winter and then we were able to make a trade for him. To his credit, delay doesn’t mean denial. He has persevered. He hasn’t taken feeling being passed over on the field with him. He’s continued to go out and do what he needs to do to make himself attractive to whatever organization has him.”  Clint Hurdle

The Pirates pitchers that threw live BP were Daniel McCutchen, Sean Gallagher, Daniel Moskos, Charlie Morton, Ramon Aguero, Bryan Morris, Fernando Nieve, Tony Watson, Justin Thomas, Chris Resop, Jeff Karstens, Tyler Yates, Cesar Valdez, Chris Leroux, Brian Burres, and Brad Lincoln.

Beimel and the big word of the day…maturation

 

Steve Pearce is healed. New knee. New wife. New life with the Bucs?

 

Don’t look now, but Tyler Yates is getting a serious push in mainstream.
