Bucco Blogger Breaks Down Contract Talks
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — Pat Lackey, author of the popular Pirates blog “Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke” joined 93-7 The Fan “Late Shift” host Chris Mueller Thursday night to take a closer look at contract talks between the Bucs and center fielder Andrew McCutchen.
Lackey gives his take on what kind of dollar figure would best suit “Cutch,” and why there hasn’t yet been a lot of urgency on either side to get a deal done. Pat also explains the meaning of “super two” status, and how it could affect these proceedings.
In addition, Pat speculates on what kind of new deal might be around the corner for hometown hero Neil Walker as rumors continue to swirl, and which Pirates he’s paying attention to as the 2011 season winds down.
