Russel Martin to sign with Bucs

2

Ken Rosenthal reports it's a done deal, pending a physical.

Nice article by DK on Tabata being his own worst enemy

I still think this kid has a chance to be something special in the future, but he's got to stop being so frustrated and just let his skills play.

Matt Hague and Casey McGehee to get starts on Saturday?

13

Obviously with Lee on the mound, the right-handed line-up will be making its first appearance. "Oh by the way, Matt Hague, welcome to Major League Baseball. Your first at-bat will be against Cliff Lee. Enjoy!"

Pedro has minor knee injury

22

When I first saw this headline I thought it said, Pedro has minor knee SURGERY. And I was going to ask, what exactly, "minor" knee surgery is?

Happy with Pirates pitchers in camp, or will they take a flier on somebody late?

It's getting to be that time of the year when some possibly washed-up pitchers begin to get released, so the question becomes: are the Pirates pretty happy with what they have in camp, or do they...

Pedro Alvarez making contact!!!!

For those that haven't been following Rob Biertempfel's Bucco Blog, he's got some small write-ups and photos and videos of the guys down at minicamp, including Pedro....making contact in the batting cage!!!

Future prediction: McCutchen...to 1st base??

I know it's a bit early to discuss this: but with all of the "move Alvarez to 1B, Walker to 3B, etc." talk that's been happening lately, it got me to thinking about the (hopefully) crowded outfield...

2012 Pirates 40-man Roster predictions, Rule 5 and all that fun stuff

  I don’t know about you guys, but trying to piece together who is likely to be on the Pirates 40-man roster next year and who needs to be protected is a pretty big puzzle.  So I thought I’d try my...

Please bring back Derrek Lee: Or the strange case of Garrett Jones

It's been an amazing couple of days' worth of reading this weekend.  Many people have suggested the idea that the Pirates should (in essence) just punt on 2012, by not attempting to re-sign Derrek...

Thank you Neal Huntington for not listening to me (a.k.a. I'm not afraid to admit when I am wrong!)

Was just reading where Brandon Webb had another setback in his rehab, won't be playing this year for the Rangers, and is possibly going to have another surgery. This past off-season, I was a big...

The new look Buccos....taking a look back one year - things have certainly changed!!!

Was just noticing last night's line-up in the Pirates game featured just Andrew McCutchen and Ronny Cedeno (and Jeff Karstens) who were on the team last year.   And it made me look to see where the...

A few thoughts on the Buccos....and giving credit where it is REALLY deserved...

A few random thoughts: I know a lot of people (not necessarily our circle here, but a lot of people in the "media") are heaping tremendous praise onto Clint Hurdle. I guess I understand where they...

Will Neal Huntington make a big trade splash soon??

While I'm not a big fan of mortgaging the team's future when it's present isn't yet ready, however... The Pirates have been stockpiling pitching for a while, could the time be now to start adding...

A couple of stats to keep in mind on draft day

I know many people get excited about the possibilities on draft day, but perhaps we should remember that the draft is anything but a given.  Very rarely do even all Top 5 picks get to the majors,...

Can poor Jose Ascanio catch a break????

1

I always feel bad for these guys that seem to have one injury after another that practically destroy their baseball careers before they've really had much of a chance to succeed or fail at the majors. Just like Craig Hansen, Kevin Hart, Tyler Yates...the list goes on.

Looks like Morton has pretty much locked it up....

Saw that in addition to the Atkins release news (and reassignments for Thomas & Nieve), that Jen Langosch is now saying that Olsen's likely to start the year on the DL, which is pretty much going...

How much did Kerrigan screw up, um, I mean, affect the Pirates pitchers???

Saw in Jenifer Langosch's blog, and her story on pirates.com, about Joe Kerrigan stopping Charlie Morton from using his sinker in the following:  Morton didn't point any fingers, but he noted that...

Using stats to predict the impact of a one-year signing.....

I was thinking about the discussions we've had, both positive/negative about the signings (or lack thereof) that the Pirates have made this off-season.  There's, of course, been tons of talk about L...

Jeff Keppinger???

I see that the Astros just signed Bill Hall, which is going to make Jeff Keppinger expendable.  I'd be curious if the Pirates would have any interest in seeing him return to the organization....

I mentioned this in another FanPost, but I thought I'd bring it up separately because there's been so much talk about improving the Pirates defense..  The Cardinals sound like they may be getting...

With Hurdle as manager, new free agent considerations....

Everybody likes to have people around them that they know.  It would seem that every manager's got some scrappy player that they love and hope to have around wherever they go. Now that Clint Hurdle...
