Tonight's Pirates/Angels game

I have front row seats on the visitors dugout tonight for the game. When a left hand batter bats, look for a chunky guy wearing a Roberto Clemente Santurce Cangrejeros jersey. I'll probably be...

Working the NBA Trade Machine

Bill Simmons posted a three team trade on FB including the Lakers, Rockets and Sixers that wasn't too great. But it got me to thinking. If the Lakers are so bent on trading Pau Gasol.....and the...

Get the Padres on the phone....

After the Mat Latos to the Reds trade, the Padres are in almost the same boat as the Reds were. Now they have Yonder Alonso and Anthony Rizzo at 1B. Not to mention Kyle Blanks and Jesus Guzman...

What about this guy?

According to ESPN Rumor Central, Jeff Green is available and they are looking for a center. They were saying Varejao and Dalembert weren't enough to get him, but would Kaman?  Green is more of a...

If we're really going all in....

There have been rumors of Indiana possibly being willing to trade Danny Granger. With the exception of Gerald Wallace, this may be the best "realistic" player the Clips can get their hands on. So,...

A man can dream, can't he?

Tried this on the ESPN Trade Machine for a laugh or two....   Clippers send Chris Kaman, Baron Davis, Al Farooq Aminu and  #1 pick to the Denver Nuggets for Carmelo Anthony and Nene Hilario   ...

Yes we need a new manager, but who?

If a manager loses over 300 games in 3 years (178-292 and counting) no matter how depleted the roster may be, it's clear that he's not reaching the players. I'm not the first person to speak about...

Went to the Pirates/Dodgers game...more of the same....

My brother had seats in the Left Field pavilion because it was UCLA hat night (Dodger hat with the blue and gold of the Bruins and the laughable THIS IS MY TOWN slogan stitched on the bill of the...

I was wrong, there is another....

I talked about acquiring Joe Johnson here recently and said that Atlanta probably wouldn't do it, but he's a good fit. I found someone who is a good fit and is a natural 3 who is on a horrible team...

There is only one trade worth making...

I saw the one for TMac and it didn't make much sense to me. I am playing this like a realist. I do not expect Lebron James to walk through that door next season. Dwyane Wade isn't coming either....

Before we put too much stock in the draft....

I have written here in the past about past Pirates draft mishaps, and while they seem to be getting better at taking chances on mid round players with upside, over the last 17 years, they have...

Wladimir Balentien

The Mariners just DFA'd him. Even last season, he was their #5 prospect. He's got a lot of power and upside, why not take a shot and grab him? No harm in taking a flyer for a lesser prospect or...

Tony Sanchez???

According to the ESPN Draft Tracker, the Pirates met with BC catcher Tony Sanchez and may be in line to take him with the fourth pick in the draft, since he's probably not going to be there at 49....

Garrett Jones

The Pirates are not hitting the ball. We have a RF who has 2 RBI's more than a dead person, despite getting 63 AB's. On the other hand, we have our AAA player of the month, Garrett Jones, who is...

The Koralev Theorem

I hated the Koralev pick. My friends hated the Koralev pick. We couldn't understand for the life of us why he chose him. Danny Granger wasn't expected to be as good as he is this year, but we still...

Marcus Camby

Even though I am the only person who has shown Marcus love on who got snubbed for the All Star Game on ESPN  http://myespn.go.com/blogs/truehoop/0-38-106/Not-on-the-Road-to-Phoenix.html I think...

Everyone is talking about trades

I just spent a little while poring over the Trade machine and there are only a couple feasible moves that can be made. But in each case, there are a lot of holes that can be shot through it. It...

Pirate Draft History

Wow, I posted a while back about how Brian Bullington is the worst #1 overall draft pick ever...(Matt Bush has to prove himself to suck that much). But looking at the entire Pirate first round...

Miller and.....

If we want Mike Miller, chances are we need to take on Brian Cardinal's contract. If that's the case, here's a deal I think may work.Cassell, Thomas and Dickau for Miller, Cardinal and Kyle Lowry.C...

Trading Sam

Now, there should be no way that the Clippers should even think of going the Memphis route and making another team stronger just for the hell of it by buying out Sam. Looking around, there are...

Fixing the Clippers

I also think that this team should be built around Brand and Kaman. However, we are also going to need to pick up a shooter who will take pressure off of the two of them. There is a player who was...

The worst first pick in MLB history

Not too long ago, my brother sent out an email saying that the 2005 draft may one day become the MLB draft that compares to the 1984 NBA draft, which is the greatest collection of talent in one...
