Polanco ranked third best outfield prospect in baseball.... That's nice, hope they're right.

We'll see. I remember how Chad Hermansen was 'can't miss'.

He missed!

Yep Hermansen could "walk on water" according to one scout... until Loser Lloyd changed his swing.

As far as Polanco goes, He's gonna have to show me more power before I get on board. He flat out refused to sign an autograph for Zach last year at Pirate city when he clearly had time. That's my image of him right now. Reminded me of a young Barry Bonds attitude.... I hope that's not the case.

It was then Pirates minor league manager Woody Huyke who made that comment about Hermansen. Besides the interference of McClendon the constant switching of positions also hurt him I believe. In HS he played OF. The Pirates drafted him to play SS, then switched him to 2B and then finally back to the OF. He hit 30 Hr for 2 consecutive years in Triple A and then Loser Lloyd tried to make him into more of a contact hitter. He may have not made it big but the organization failed him also.

Good points, no doubt that hurt him too.

This is great news! I was worried that the Pirates were gonna re-sign him. $16 mil is waaaay too much.

The Pirates are one of two teams to decrease payroll this year, after finally having a winning season.

Same old Pirates.
