First Pitch: Day Thirty Six – IL

Most of my attention lately has been focused on Pirates Prospects, which underwent a big change this week.

Over here at No Quarter, the focus will be on increasing the daily content again, beyond just First Pitch. I’ve got a few columns to write, and we’ve got two contributor articles coming up this week, including one today from Jason Gindele.

Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to write my articles yet, because I’m now old enough that I can be sidelined for two days for sleeping on my shoulder wrong.

Normally, my writing schedule would start with some fun, non-baseball writing, and today’s First Pitch was originally meant to look at the first season of Hawkeye. I’m going to save that for next week.

For now, check out the links below, which include the full slate this week at Pirates Prospects, along with some updates over at Pittsburgh Baseball Now.
