I’d still like to know what Endy is position wise. I guess he’s the future catcher?


Seems like Endy is on track for to start next year in AAA and get called up mid June when Super 2 is no longer a concern…..fingers crossed for that one….


would be disappointed if that didn’t happen tbh


Also believe hes playing in the dominican this winter which seems to be around the level of AAA, so he should be well prepared for the next step i would think


In the immortal words of John Prine, Oh Boy!


Who caught Priester, Blake or Endy?


Never mind. It was Bins! Endy at 2nd, Blake in LF!


I have a question and in no way I want to come across like a Debbie downer, but is this like September call ups in the bigs, what I mean is, all the good AAA players are up in the bigs and those that are left are org and recently promoted players.


Well there are only like 5 dozen extra roster spots in MLB during September.

Is that what you’re concerned about?


No concern, just want to keep my excitement in check. Last year when Cruz and company got promoted they went off too.


September roster is now just 28 instead of huge like before


Good. The small army in the dugout was dumb.


Endy is just crazy good.


Some nice AAA debuts but I’m sure our GM will keep them in the minors for a couple more years because I’m sure he can find some waiver wire pickups to lead the Pirates to the promise land next season.


What a beautifully well rounded win for the indians


I know it is way too early for Endy, Priester, Sabol, Nunez, Bae, Selby, and Swags but ……..

Selby with a scoreless inning, touching 99


Would love to see an article on future pen pieces, those are players I rarely follow.


someone help me out. i’m just not sure if endy is good or not. anyone?


well he did manage to over slide second costing himself his second double of the game, lol.


If he could learn to strike out a little more and maybe throw the ball into the stands from 2nd base or into the outfield more when behind the plate, he would work in the Show.

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

I mean, he’s ok


They should just their name while he’s there to the Endyans.


If one was to graph Endy’s production vs. level and projected the future, he’d be projected to be better than Trout 🙂 I.e., OPS keeps going up as he advances levels.


If it keeps going up in the show…….

Mets fans…………..


And, Pirates fans…..

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Soooo, take the over on a 1.200 OPS in the bigs? lol


I am taking the over!!!!


Just took a very good throw to keep him from another double, still got a couple more rbi’s.


He was actually safe but he came off the bag.

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

This is so much fun!!!!

The way Endy got to that ball and pulled it for a double. Then Sabol obliterating the baseball!!! LETS GOO!!!!

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Nunez with a ding dong big bomb. I thought it was going to go a lot further than it did with the way the camera man panned to the OF lol

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Well this makes me sad


I hope he does better than his last start in Altoona.


Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Oooo, early game.


Excited for QPs taste of Indy then run in the fall league!
