The Pirates need to do something with Pedro and his hitting. This team cannot afford to sit back and live through the home run or no count “star”. How many runners has he stranded this year? It’s no wonder teams pitch around Cutch. There is no reliable threat behind Cutch. When Polanco comes up, put Harrison at third and platoon Pedro at first. Scott Boras is going to require a HUGE contract for him when the time comes. Can the Pirates afford to overpay for a guy who shows no improvement year to year?
