Another October, another year for Pirates fans to sit around and watch other teams play meaningful baseball. That likely means we will have quite some time without any interesting Pirate-related news to ponder. So let’s dive into some 2008-in-review posts.
Here’s what you can expect in the upcoming weeks at the Lumber Co. We’ll start with a brief series entitled Under the Radar. We’ll take a look at a few stories from the past year that didn’t seem to generate a whole lot of attention, at least from what I saw. While we were extensively debating Nate McLouth’s defense, Adam LaRoche’s dramatic half-season splits and Nyjer vs. Pearce, these topics generally received only casual remarks.
Next, I hope to talk about each individual player and his 2008 season. I’m not sure if I will get through everyone, but we’ll give it a shot.
The Lumber Co. will remain busy throughout the playoffs and right into the offseason. There is still much to discuss.
