Joel Hanrahan Placed On Bereavement List

Talk about a rough week. Prayers go out to Hanrahan and family. Update From David: Daniel McCutchen has been recalled from Indianapolis to take Hanrahan's roster spot. Hanrahan is expected to rejoin the team on Sunday.

John Russell taken off Third Base.

I bet he said "NO!" to the runner (Jakubauskus) but it was lost in mumbles.

Mets Appeal McCutchen's Hit

Talk about adding insult to injury. The Mets need to learn that WINS, not stats, are most important. The ruling will probably not be changed (refer to CC Sabathia, no-hitter), and Murphy is not going to make an easy throw to first to get Cutch out. This just made me mad, and seems to be a poor move by the Mets organization.


Pedro Alvarez changes number?

For all the fans of Alvarez, don't buy a jersey just yet.  When Delwyn Young was cut, he also abandoned the number 24.  I expected Alvarez, a fan of that number, to pick it up.  It appears he...


Holy Cow! Justin Upton

So apparently the D'Backs are listening to offers for the 23 year old star.  It would take a HUGE offer to get Upton, but at the same time, it could be worth it.  Upton could fit perfectly into...


GFJ Platoon Partner

I was reading MLBTR, and I saw that the Angels might want to get rid of Mike Napoli.  This is all speculation, on their part, but I still was interested enough to look at his stats.  First off,...


Offseason Wishlist

Alright, we're the worst team in the MLB.  We probably won't be contending next year, but that doesn't mean we can't set ourselves up for 2012.  Via trade or free agency, who would you like the P...


What is going on here?

I haven't been watching too many Pirates games recently, and have been demoted to ESPN highlights, but I had no idea that Jose Tabata was on fire.  Am I alone here, or is anyone else surprised...

If Anyone Wants to See Alvarez's Post-Game Interview,

The video is on his player page on the Pirates sight. I still can't tell if that "where's the power coming from" question was a joke or not, but Pedro did a good interview with MLB Network.


The Miami Heat, and the Pirates

  The Miami Heat have 3 players left on their team from last year.  They have enough cap room for D-Wade, LeBron, and almost one more maximum contract. This leaves the question, why haven't the P...


Looking Ahead: 2010 Draft

In just 16 days, it will be time for the draft.  As a huge fan of the draft, I have decided to put together my own personal top 25 (with one extra) for this year.  We could be in position to land...


Dream Lineup: 2011

Let's say the Pirates stay near .500 all season, and finish the season at about 76 wins.  Going into the off-season, NH decides that in 2011, we're going for the pennant.  So he decides to add...


After Bucs sweep Cubs, Cubs call up Castro

Starlin Castro was promoted today.  I, for one, think that the Cubs were worried about their team after that last series.  I think the Cubs will regret this decision, because if they wait another...


Let The Chatter Begin

Facing the Manatees today, top prospect Pedro Alvarez went 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI.  If he hits like this throughout spring training, do we dare start him on Opening Day?  He is...

Pirates Sign Zach Von Rosenberg

ZVR has signed for $1.2 million! UPDATE by Charlie: Baseball America reports this too. I deleted a FanPost about this because the text was copied from Perrotto, so you can discuss this here. This is fantastic news; I hope the Bucs grab a few more of their late-round picks, but this draft already looks fairly good with the additions of Von Rosenberg, Colton Cain and Trent Stevenson.


The Pirates - Rays comparison

Yeah, I know most of you are probably sick of all the Rays comparisons.  But if you do plan to read this, I promise I'll try my best to make more sense than the ESPN comparisons.  I'd think ESPN...


Looking Ahead A Few Weeks, And Years After That

A few weeks from now, Pittsburghers will be angered, threatening to stop going to games, using the old "revolving door" cliche, and complaining about how the Pirates once again traded away their...
