Okay, have at it -- ask me any baseball questions you like, and I'll address some of them in a post later this week, or perhaps on the podcast if David's available to do one. As always, please...

Pirates to place Andrew McCutchen on DL


Andrew McCutchen's oblique injury is expected to land him on the 15-day disabled list, Ron Cook writes. Starling Marte is likely to rejoin the team after his own stint on the disabled list and play...

Bucs unlikely to move Alvarez until after season


The Pirates probably will not move Pedro Alvarez to another position until after the season is over, Rob Biertempfel writes. That makes sense, obviously. The only position to which Alvarez could...

The Pirates lost Andrew McCutchen and lost on a dubious Diamondbacks baserunning play in extra innings Sunday, falling 3-2. McCutchen left the game in the eighth inning after experiencing pain in...

Pirates lose 7-4 to Diamondbacks


In addition to not making any trades, the Pirates also didn't win any games Thursday, falling to the Diamondbacks, 7-4. The Bucs grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second when Neil Walker singled, Ike...

Thoughts on the Pirates and the trade deadline


A few thoughts on the Pirates' performance at the trade deadline today: -P- It appears the Red Sox and Rays wanted big-leaguers in return for Jon Lester and David Price, and seen from that...

Tigers acquire David Price


The Tigers have acquired David Price. Tampa will apparently get big-league players back in return, which sort of makes sense, in that the Tigers' minor league system isn't the best. It's apparently...

Orioles acquire Andrew Miller


The Orioles have acquired Andrew Miller for pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez, a very good pitching prospect who's currently holding his own (if not thriving) for Double-A Bowie as a...

Pirates involved in David Price talks


This morning, at least, the Pirates discussed a David Price trade with the Rays, Ken Rosenthal writes. Price represented the most valuable starting pitcher on the market even when Jon Lester was...

Cardinals trade for John Lackey


The Cardinals have acquired John Lackey, which is annoying. Lackey was a quiet presence on this market, but he's a very effective starter, posting 2.5 WAR already this year and 3.1 last year. Right...

Pirates reportedly ask about Emilio Bonifacio


The Pirates have asked the Cubs about Emilio Bonifacio, Joel Sherman reports. With Josh Harrison in the fold, I wouldn't think another 2B/3B/OF would be high on the Pirates' list of priorities, but...

Red Sox trade Jon Lester to Athletics


The Red Sox have traded Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to the Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes and a Comp Round B pick, everyone reports at once. If this is what the Red Sox wanted, it looks like the...

Thoughts on Bristol's loss to Princeton


As someone mentioned in the last thread about Bristol, this was really poor timing for a visit, all things considered -- it's hard to get anyone too excited about rookie ball when the Pirates are...

Giants 7, Pirates 5


I'm at the Bristol game right now, but here's a thread to discuss the Pirates' 7-5 loss to San Francisco, featuring The Weirdest Baserunning Play Of All Time. Charlie Morton allowed three runs in...
