Off Day Links

I lament the weirdness of being a Pirate fan at FanHouse.

Charlie notes that a full 50% of the 40-man roster has changed under Neal Huntington in just about a year.

Along those same lines, here's a blog following all of the Pirates' moves and how the acquisitions are faring.

Has it really been a year
? I may work something up on that subject for FanHouse this afternoon.

Jeff Karstens has an ERA+ of infinity with the Pirates. That's pretty cool. It was also pretty cool to see a pitcher in black and gold be able to put the ball where he wanted it in the strike zone. I'm still kind of in shock that that whole thing happened yesterday.

UPDATE: In the comments is a link to this BP article about the oddly bright-looking future of the Pirates (subscriber only).
