Pirates | Andrews to stress turnarounds by starters

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dejan Kovacevic reports Pittsburgh Pirates pitching coach Jeff Andrews plans on instilling a new mental work ethic among his starters this spring, in an effort to reduce the toll of repeated losses. "After we lose a game, we need to have our starters - all of them - approach the next one with a sense of urgency," Andrews said. "If you take any of our starters and look at the top 10 percent of their starts, they match up with anyone in the league. Well, that's the level you need to find when your team needs it the most. You can't go long stretches of losing, and the only people who can stop those are the starting pitchers."
