Ten Positives for the 2010 Pirates Grapefruit League


The Pirates aren’t piling up many wins in the Grapefruit League this season.  In fact, most of the team stats have the Bucs near the bottom.  Sure we could focus on that, but I just spent three days in our nations capital, I have heard enough bad news this week.  So let’s drink some kool aid.

Andrew McCutchen has hit safely in six of his last seven games.

Lastings Milledge has reached base safely in 10 of his last 12 games.

Delwyn Young had two more RBI yesterday and came in to play third base.

Ronny Cedeno has a seven game hitting streak and has reached base safely in eight straight games.

Six of Bobby Crosby’s eight hits have gone for extra bases.

Ryan Doumit has reached base safely in seven of his last nine and nine of 13 overall.

Aki Iwamura has reached base safely in five of his last seven games.

John Raynor had two more walks yesterday in his two PA, and scored two more runs.

Jack Taschner has twelve K’s.

Brendan Donnelly has been scored upon in one of his six outings.
