  1. With Curtis Granderson out 10 weeks with a busted forearm, it’s be nice to see the Pirates trade one of their extra OFs (Alex Presley, anyone?) since they have such a glut. Can always use another prospect. :)

  2. Looks like Jeanmar Gomez may need a little work. Guess that’s what ST is for.

  3. Joggin’ Joe ties it up with an 8th inning homer.

  4. The Twins are playing 3 guys we had at Indy last season, Boggs, Clement and Fryer. And winning.

  5. What happened? We lost!

  6. Lower the Jolly Roger. The Bucs’ winning streak ends at 2.

    ST lament.

  7. I’m cold. I’m so cold.

  8. Pirates close to a deal with Kip Wells

  9. on a SERIOUS note the Pens just brought back Eaton. Wonder if this means Bortuzzo is heading out; could have sworn he would have had to clear waivers.

    • Don’t think it’s Bortuzzo, almost has to be Depres. He definitely has shown his potential, but as already been written, that for his long term developement, he is better off playing big minutes as a 1 or 2 in W/B than as the 5 in Pittsburgh, since he still has options. Tough deal, but probably in the best interest of the organization….unless this is a precursor to a trade.

  10. And on an even more serious note Jon Morosi is reporting that the Pirates have spoken to Scott Boras concerning Kyle Loshe; this according to the ESPN rumor mill

  11. SP McPherson’s line is a rare one: 2 IP, 1H, threw 6 pitches, all strikes. And his ERA last season across 26 innings was 2.74? These are submicroscopic sample sizes, but he has my attention.

  12. What we really need here are NH’s bust, waist and hip measurements, if they can be had without influencing the election of the next Pope.

  13. I have to ask. Where’s our daily Pitt-South Florida thread?

    DK: Why I ought to …

  14. Wow. Don’t wake the sleeping journalist.

    At least I have a reprieve until noon. Ish.
