NEIL WALKER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Neil Walker < 500

Neil Walker is a perfect storm. He, perhaps first and foremost, a wonderful story. He was drafted out of high school by his hometown team as a catcher in 2004, but he wasn’t all that well suited to the position and injuries eventually forced him to third base.

First Pitch: Despite a Career Year, the Pirates Still Shouldn’t Extend Neil Walker

The topic of extending Neil Walker gets brought up every off-season. It’s always a subject that causes a huge divide. To some, Walker is seen as a key member of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and an irreplaceable part of the core of this team. Some of this evaluation might have to do with the fact that Walker is from Pittsburgh. To others, Walker is a good player, but not a great player...
