They do tend to win the games that they should definitely lose on paper.

All the more amazing when you consider what a distraction Kang has been.

I hope Marte's PED use didn't have anything to do with all the shit the media gave him last year for not hitting home runs.

I personally think home runs have become very undervalued in today's game, but with that being said, Marte brings so many positives to the game even without hitting home runs.

Just a really random-ass thing for Marte to be busted for.

Marte is developing a track record for missing games. Since his first full season he's missed:
27
27
9
33
80+ this year.

Kuhl throwing 94-96, first time seeing him this year. I still think he could be a pretty good starter for us

This is another factor of Kang and Marte being out. Not only is there a drop off from them to their replacement but the replacement of the replacements are also substantial drop offs. Freese is fine now but I don't expect him to keep playing at Kang levels. Still, because Freese is now starting, guys like Jaso and Hanson get more playing time. If Frazier replaces Marte, he's an offensive and defensive talent drop from Marte. Again, players like Hanson, Freese and possibly Osuna get more playing time that Frazier would have seen.

Are you forgetting about Frazier? The Pirates were not short a 4th OF; if anything, they were struggling to find a way to play all 4 of them at once.

If I'm the Pirates, I don't bring up Meadows yet. I use this as an excuse to play Frazier full-time in the OF to see if he can be a MLB regular. Plus if nobody's checked, Meadows is off to a whopping .162/.220/.270 slash line to start his AAA season, so he's not exactly pushing for a promotion right now either.

There's that.....but as soon as he gets up to speed.....

He did fine in Spring Training here...I think he'd have an adjustment period and then be at least OK.

Sometimes you have to play the hand you're dealt. Either that or go get another decent outfielder somewhere unless you're just cashing it in for this season.

There's not one hitter in our lineup where you feel good when they come up. This is without a doubt a 90+ loss lineup

He hasn't earned it or shown he can do it at the highest level but this team isn't bringing him up before they're convince he won't be a super two player.

Marte's stupidity could hasten McCutchen's exit. If the Pirates fall out of contention, it makes it easier for the FO to trade McCutchen.

I would be surprised if Meadows wasn't up with the Pirates by mid- to late-June, but I can see why they wouldn't want to immediately rush him up at this point. I actually like the choice of Osuna; dude almost made it out of Spring Training, and this is a guy that could easily fall through the cracks otherwise.
