PNC PARK – Pirates manager Clint Hurdle often says “feelings aren’t facts.”
The Pirates have strong feelings of loyalty when it comes to Jason Grilli. In the first half of the season, Grilli was the best closer in the game. He’s been a good teammate and was really the face of the team’s first half success – the face of the bullpen.
But the unfortunate facts are Grilli has not looked like his pre-injury self since returning.
