The Opposite of Disgust: Vote for PedroPosted: June 18, 2012
Pedro Alvarez was picked by the Pirates as the second pick of the draft and got a hefty six million dollar contract from the organization. The man has power–his nickname is El Toro, The Bull. Unfortunately what he doesn’t have is consistency. Earlier this season Alvarez was benched by Pirates’ manager Clint Hurdle in an effort to get him focused. It seems to have worked, at least in the short term:

Pedro Alvarez had one of his best games yet. Still, it was a win by the Pittsburgh Pirates that had him really excited.
Alvarez drove in a career-high six runs with his second two-homer game in two days, powering Pittsburgh past the Cleveland Indians 9-5 Sunday.
”I’m just glad to help us win the series,” Alvarez said as music blared in the clubhouse following the Pirates’ second victory in three games, giving them a sixth series win in their last seven matchups.
Wishing Pedro a continuation of this level of production.
Overall, it is good to see Pirates other than just Andrew McCutchen produce some offense. Neil Walker is another player putting up solid numbers of late.
