He played parts of five seasons with Pittsburgh through last year and hit .232 with nine homers and 52 RBIs in 185 games. The Orioles designated infielder-outfielder Bill Hall for assignment.

Phil Hughes Has the Stuff, Not the Location

Phil Hughes has become the center of a lot of skepticism and the target of many a sportswriter's axe. However bleak it may seem for the once promising young fireballer, there are signs of hope in an otherwise messy situation. First and foremost, Yankees' manager Joe Girardi continues to support Hughes, even with his 5.64 ERA. Perhaps Joe is privy to the positive signs...

Bombers Getting Bombed: A Look at the Yankees’ Inability to Keep Opponents in the Yard

Around this time last year, there was a patently absurd notion pervading coverage of the New York Yankees. Writers, bloggers and radio hosts were mostly in agreement: The Yankees were hitting all too many home runs. At the time, I did a full analysis of the situation, and determined that these home runs were not being paid for with extra outs, essentially making them upgraded singles...

Verlander roughed up by Yankees

Jeter homered on the first pitch of the game, and Rodriguez hit a long solo shot in the third inning. Hughes (5-5) didn't need much support in throwing his first career complete game of nine innings...

Damn. Now I'm confused: After all this, I guess we SHOULDA traded Hughes and Joba for Santana

Another reason to tar and feather Cashman! If it hadn't been for him - refusing to trade Hughes and Joba for Johann Santana - we would be sitting on a no-hitter this morning. "Dammit, Brian Cashman, we’d be better off if you were never born!"Wait a minute. Something just happened. I'm no longer wet.. We didn’t get that grand slam last night, because Grandyman...

Deep Impact: Nothing Really Matusz To Me

At the beginning of last year, Brian Matusz was a popular sleeper and a candidate to evolve into the next Greg Maddux, mixed with a side of MacGyver and a Dragon from the future. Everyone loves sleepers, as you think you’re the only one who knows what’s up. The funny thing is, everyone thinks like that and also knows that you know. If they know what you know, you should also...
