I don't know if this has been posted before, but Pirates fans in the Pacific Northwest can see Doug Drabek and J.R. House this summer. They have been named pitching and hitting coaches for the Diamondbacks affiliate in Hillsboro -- outside of Portland.

Robbie Grossman Breaks Hamate Bone

30

Hamate. Typical bad news. UPDATE by Charlie: Yeah, this is unfortunate. Grossman made great strides this year, and it now looks like it might be tough for him to take advantage of them. He should be ready to play by Opening Day, but sometimes it takes hitters awhile to recover their timing and especially their power after a hamate injury. Maybe Grossman will be able to return without missing a beat; maybe he won't.

From the diaries. Fantastic move by the Braves - this may well end up being the biggest steal of the offseason. As for Wilson, he doesn't get much money, he can get a big contract next year if he...
