2010-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite and least favorite current Pirates? Why?
(Neal from Pitt)
Andrew McCutchen and Daniel McCutchen. I'll let you figure out why. (Shawn Hoffman)
2009-02-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts of Daniel McCutchen cracking the buc's rotation? And for fun, Which of Brackman, Bleich, Heredia, Betances, De La Rosa break out of the Tampa Yankees' rotation first?
(Spezzaz0r from NY)
If McCutchen pitches well this spring, he'll almost certainly be in the rotation. As far as the Yankees, I'll go with Betances. (John Perrotto)
