Pirates Postgame: Pirates Take Cubs Series
It was a revenge game for Jose Quintana as he faced his former team and he didn’t disappoint. It was, however, a disappointing outing for Will Crowe. Tonight, we discuss these performances as well as the bullpen usage. Should Wil Crowe have stayed in for as long as he did and was the correct move going to David Bednar over Yerri De Los Santos?
The offense stayed alive today as well. Oneil Cruz continued his streak of RBI’s. Ke’Bryan Hayes hit a laser over the left field notch while also scoring the winning run in today’s contest (and yes, it appears he is ok). However, it was Michael Chavis who had a big day. We tell you why it was his defense that stood out the most.
We also talk about the upcoming roster moves the Pirates will be faced with as a plethora of players are close to their return. Which guys will remain in Pittsburgh and which are likely going to be off the 40-man completely? Tune in and listen.
