    Just to quickly explain how the half works if you project Marte to get 35 free passes and he ends with say 42 you would be 7 off. 1.5 goes into 7 4 full times meaning you would lose 4 points and be...

    Big round of cuts today takes us down to 35 players in camp so only 10 more cuts to make. No big surprises from today's cuts but the most notable ones are probably Bobby LaFromboise and Jose Tabata....

    A handful of players were released by the Pirates. Zack Von Rosenberg is the most noteworthy but Nate Baker, Chris Peacock, Ryan Beckman and the only non pitcher Ashley Ponce join him.

    Sticky: Pirates Spring Training Discussion

    Huntington is going to be able to be very aggressive claiming guys with options once rosters cut down. By my math there will likely be 3 openings (Cumpton, Florimon and Pimentel) on the 40 man roster.

    I highly doubt it. The current starters don't really need a defensive sub so someone with more offensive upside will likely get the job.

    My guess is he actually serves as the 4th OF in AAA.

    Well he tried 3rd originally and that failed quickly. If it works he could take over Hart's spot but yes it's going to be tough for Allie to make it.

    Wandy has made the Braves rotation. Good for him I think he still has something left.

    Kingham and Diaz sent down today. They essentially had to be because if they got injured after today they would have to be put on the DL.

    Sounds like Chris Stewart isn't going to be ready to start the season in the majors so Tony Sanchez is probably going to make the team.

    They really aren't at different times your proposal would be. If we set the age at 30 which is roughly when players now reach free agency a player making the majors at 20 would have to play 10...

    Can we really hold a 16 year old international prospect and a 23 year old college senior to the same age standard as far as how long a team controls a player?

    No on Howard. He just doesn't have any value at all at this point. Plus he wouldn't really be a good platoon option with Alvarez seeing as he is left handed.

    Sticky: Pirates Spring Training Discussion

    Liriano has been announced as the Opening Day starter. Gerrit Cole will pitch the home opener. That probably means Cole will follow Liriano in the rotation.
