The State of the Pittsburgh Pirates Address
9 of 11
Inconsistent. Prone to random fits of chaos. Those are two things that describe the Pirates defense pretty well. However, I think we can all agree that the defense is much better off without Neil Walker and Pedro Alvarez than it was with them. The Pirates are just 26th in baseball with 23 errors committed, but stats can be deceiving. Watch David Freese, Josh Harrison or even John Jaso, and that will be easy to see.
Overall grade: C+
