  1. Not a Pirates fan, but I live in Altoona and always have. It is great to see more and more recognition for what the Buccos are doing. I am sure they will drop off and finish around .500 but Neal Huntington and Co. have come a long way and proved the local doubters wrong. People would not believe how Pittsburgh-ians bowed down to the likes of Bay, McLouth and Sanchez…I was happy when they doubled down and get rid of all of them because what is the point of having mediocre players on a horrible team? Huntington has acquired true minor league talent through trades and even moreso through the draft and I believe the Pirates will be a force to be wreckoned with in the years to come.

  6. it’s close, but I give the edge to Ramos. They’re ZiPS ROS are pretty similar with Martin showing a slight edge in runs and RBI but a lower average. But they also have him getting roughly 40 more plate appearances and once Pudge gets dealt, Ramos will see an increase of playing time. Adjusting the stats to reflect those extra plate appearances shows an even more negligible difference in the two and I like Ramos’ potential over what we already know Martin will likely do for you.

  7. Just as close as above. Posada obviously has the edge in power potential given what he’s done. Hard to go against his track record. However, this has been a seriously down year for him and likely the very tail end of a solid career. I’d rather hope for the young upstart to build on a fairly successful first half than to sit and pray that the declining veteran has one last surge left in him.
