Gorkys Hernandez Video Recap – 4/22/12

Gorkys Hernandez was at one point rated as the #62 prospect in all of baseball when he was in the Atlanta Braves organization.

He still possesses and excellent glove and arm and should make...

Bedard is the Biggest Loser

Poor Erik Bedard. The man has posted a very respectable 2.63 ERA, but leads the Majors in losses with 4. 4 starts, 4 losses. This is what happens when you pitch for the Majors' worst offense. The Pittsburgh Pirates should be ashamed.  He's currently on pace for 43 losses. Congratulations Erik Bedard, you are the biggest loser.

Burnett's debut

AJ Burnett's debut is coming a little earlier than anyone expected, but I'm still pretty excited to see what he can do in a Pirate uniform. His rehab starts were a little dicey, sure, but those are about as meaningful as spring training starts, in my eyes, and as long as he was hitting his velocity targets and his other pitches looked OK (which they did, by most accounts...

GIFcap: Dee Gordon Seems To Have Penchant For Homoerotic Teammate Interaction

Dee Gordon and Rod Barajas had their own celebration last year that consisted of Dee jumping into the arms of Barajas to be rocked to sleep. It was … interesting. Well … apparently Dee is trying a different homoerotic teammate interaction in 2012, this time with Andre Ethier. Tony Gwynn Jr.‘s face in the background

Game 15: Cardinals 5 Pirates 1

I wanted to keep my streak of a recap-for-every-game going since I kind of fell off of the table towards the end of the year last fall and I don't want to head down the rabbit hole again. The problem is that I have nothing unique to say about this game at the moment; Erik Bedard hit some rough spots early but cruised after the fourth inning and pitched generally well. The Pirates...

Silenced again

The Pirate hitters must have something against their left-handed teammates, because Erik Bedard is suffering from the exact same problem. Bedard wasn’t at his best today, but he still ended up with a decent outing and made it through seven innings after a rocky first three...
