Found March 25, 2013 on
Poor Audris Rijo. The girlfriend of Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jonathan Sanchez had a rough Sunday night on the Univision reality show, Nuestra Belleza Latina 2013. Word of naked Rijo photos has rocked the reality show and sent viewers into a frenzy to find the goods.
(We know, because thousands of Internet users were flocking last night to BC.)
It was announced right here last year that Sanchez, once a promising left-handed pitcher with the Giants (13-9 in 2010), was in a relationship with the bikini model. Little did we think that NSFW would send Univision into a frenzy.
According to Univision (via Google translation):
And the Dominican Audris was who admitted posed nude, a past mistake can happen to anyone.
However, the statuesque participant Nuestra Belleza Latina was supported by their partners and, above all, of the drivers of Salt and Pepper , who agreed with her, saying that these images do not alter its essence as a person, in the end, is what should weigh in the beauty contest.
Of course we found the naked Rijo photos.
They’re really not that big of a deal, considering how everyone in Latin America is naked all the time. Since when was the Mexican TV world rocked by naked modeling photos taken by a professional photographer?
Is Mexico getting soft on us? Unreal.

The Pirates have to make a decision on Jonathan Sanchez.
Today is the deadline for the Pittsburgh Pirates to make a decision on left-hander Jonathan Sanchez. Sanchez wants to be a starter, and the Pirates have to either add him to the active roster, or grant him his release. Coincidentally, he’s also scheduled to start today. With the current makeup of the team, there should be...
The Pittsburgh Pirates told left-hander Jonathan Sanchez and third baseman Brandon Inge they will make the team's opening day roster.
The pair, signed to minor league contracts as free agents, would have been able to opt out of their deals if they hadn't been told by Tuesday they will be added to the 40-man roster.
Sanchez, a left-hander, will move into the No. 4 spot in...
Michael Sanserino is tweeting out a bunch of news today, but the most important points are here: Jonathan Sanchez has made the Pirates' rotation and Brandon Inge will make the Pirates' roster, though he may open the season on the disabled list. I've talked quite a bit about Sanchez already, particularly in yesterday's post about the rotation. There's some room...
Opening Day is less than a week away, and we’re finally starting to see what the last couple spots on the 25-man roster will look like when the Bucs head to Pittsburgh this weekend. It isn’t pretty. Here’s a breakdown of the situation:
The most important position that needed to be filled during spring training was the back of the rotation. Originally, it appeared...
Sadler allowed just one hit and no walks in five shutout innings
The Pirates’ AAA and AA squads took on their Toronto counterparts at Pirate City today. They got good starts from Brandon Cumpton in the AAA game and Casey Sadler in the AA game. Cumpton went four and a third innings, allowing one run on four hits and a walk, with one strikeout. He threw 62 pitches, 40 for strikes...
The sixth weekend of college baseball wrapped up today, with weather canceling many games across the country, including top ranked North Carolina. Check out the draft preview posted here and the recap of the fifth week’s action here. Just a reminder, the Pirates pick #9 and #14 in this year’s June amateur draft, so for the duration of the college season, leading up to draft...
Here are the pitchers that I'm comfortable with in the Pirates' pitching staff (in order of confidence), one week before the 2013 season begins:
1. AJ Burnett
2. Wandy Rodriguez
3. James McDonald
That's not a great trio, but it's a pretty good one. Burnett had a strong year last year in the National League and in a friendly ballpark, with the Pirates&...
Hafner allowed just one hit and no walks in two innings
The Pirates took on the Blue Jays in three lower level minor league games. The two class A squads hooked up, while the teams added a rookie level game.
The high A game featured Nick Kingham, although he didn’t start. Jared Hughes opened the game, throwing a dozen pitches and then departing. That left Isaac Sanchez to...
Just as I feared, Brandon Inge has made the team. Not that I’m surprised. His signing led me to write this post about how all these “Just a Minor League Deals” shouldn’t be written off. This is probably the nail in the coffin for Jordy Mercer and possibly Josh Harrison. With the addition of John…
Jason Grilli struck out an average of 13 batters per nine innings and recorded a 2.91 ERA in 58 2/3 innings pitched last season. Grilli owned the eighth inning while serving as the setup man for Joel Hanrahan, who the Pirates traded in the offseason to Boston. Armed with a new contract, Grilli told PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko that he is ready to step into the closer's role.
When word leaked out yesterday that the Brewers had come to a three-year/$33 million agreement with Kyle Lohse, a lot of Pirate fans immediately started wondering why the Pirates didn't make more of a push for Lohse given their current rotation woes. There are a lot of fairly straightforward answers to this question: Lohse is due for some regression and is much more likely to...
