“This is a little different team for sure then what I think people are used too around baseball, “ Walk said. :A lot of people are standing up and taking notice right now,”


Walk says there are many great a storylines with this team but it all comes back to what Josh Bell is doing and how he continues to put up historic numbers and how he is helping this Pirates offense look like the Lumber Company again.


“The pitching is getting better and the bullpen is clicking as of late,” Walk added. “Bit the offense…You can’t talk  enough about it. It’s just dominating the story right now.”


Walk says this team will answer what they will do at the trade deadline over the next two weeks. He says if they keep playing like this they will have to add to the team at the deadline.


“Time to see how this question is answered,” Walk said. “This is it. This is going to tell the story.”


Walk says that last week heading into the trade deadline will be interesting to see where the team is and what they decide to do.


We know this…It will be fun to watch
