The Pirates filled several holes with the signing of Lyle Overbay. They added veteran leadership, left-handed power and a steady glove at first.

Although Overbay's batting average has gone down each of the past three years, (.270, .265, .240), his home runs have gone up (15, 16, 20).

It’s no secret that the Pirates have been shopping Ryan Doumit this off-season, but PSR hopes he stays with the team. We like him as a part-time starter behind the plate and in right field, plus he would provide thump off the bench when he’s not in the line-up.

I haven’t seen anything that would indicate Doumit is first base material, but I’m not sold on Lyle Overbay as the everyday solution at that spot either (because of his offense not his defense).

As a certified athletic trainer with 15 years of experience, Craig Castor has observed the warm-up routines of many youth, high school, college and minor league baseball players.

Those warm-ups—cross-over stretches, arm windmills, and wrist and forearm stretches followed by long-toss—are strikingly similar and, in Castor's view, not very effective.

The first thing I thought when I first saw Andrew McCutchen play was, "This guy has superstar written all over him." Usually it's not hard to find something players need to do to improve their game. With McCutchen, though, you really have to nit-pick.

He hits for average... but he can hit higher.

He's got some power... but he can hit more homeruns.

He can flat-out fly—and he hustles—but he can be a better base stealer.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
