Ed. note: Travel delays and prior commitments kept me from getting this posted sooner.
Back to Pirate City again this morning. Minor league coaches differ a lot in their approach. Some will try to be a friend while some are drill sergeants. Class A West Virginia manager Rick Sofield falls into the latter category. On Friday I saw him absolutely tearing into a group of thirdbasemen for not showing enough effort. Today, he was similarly ripping a group of pitchers during a drill where multiple base runners are moving but censored himself because there was an audience this time. Very entertaining to watch in either case.
With that, it was time to say good bye to Pirate City and head over to McKechnie and the Astros.
