The 0-3 San Diego Padres have acquired left-handed pitcher Brain Tallet from the Pirates, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. Tallet will report to Triple-A initially but will probably be called up at some point this season, and just like must pitchers on the decline that land in San Diego, he will probably pitch lights out and revitalize his career.
The Pirates will either receive cash considerations or a player to be named later for Tallet.
In parts of 9 seasons with the Indians, Cardinals and Blue Jays, Tallet has a 16-25 record with a 4.79 era. He has a career 6.6 k/9 and 4.2 b/9 in 460 innings of work.

Even though the cross-state rival Phillies were without star players 1B Ryan Howard and 2B Chase Utley, the Pirates’ found themselves staring down the double-barrel combo of SP Roy Halladay and SP Cliff Lee to kick off their 2012 campaign, not to mention a steadily-improving Vance Worley in game 3.
All told, the Pirates stood toe-to-toe with...

Rod Barajas led off the bottom of the 10th with a double off the top of the wall. Then, with two outs and pinch-runner Michael McKenry on third base, Alex Presley hit a broken bat grounder toward the hole on the left side. Jimmy Rollins back handed it and made the throw to first, but it wasn’t in...

Happy Easter to all! Let’s hope we can celebrate with a series win over the Phillies.
The Pirates traded minor league pitcher Brian Tallet to San Diego for cash or a PTBNL.
Jameson Taillon made his high-A debut last night. He went 3.2 innings, allowed 2 runs, and...
From what I’ve heard around baseball about the Padres rotation, the Padres have no chance of contending in 2012. This was surprising to me, when actually the Padres slim chance of contending this year is due to their abysmal offense. The Padres rotation is fairly average compared to the rest of baseball. Obviously, losing your ace would hurt any MLB pitching staff. But I believe...
It wasn’t easy or pretty, but the Pirates found a way to raise the Jolly Roger for the first time this year with a 10 inning 2-1 win over the hated Phillies.
Early on, the game looked just like Thursday’s. The Pirate offense was nowhere to be found (again, somewhat excusable against a great pitcher in Cliff Lee–but they were still terrible). Jeff Karstens kept them very much...
An error on a strikeout, and a leaky bullpen allows the Pirates to pull off another walk-off win against the Phils as they lose in the bottom of the ninth, 5-4.
The Phils took the lead in the first as, with one man on, and with one man out, Hunter Pence hits an RBI double, knocking in Shane Victorino, who had earlier singled, then moved up to second base on Jimmy Rollins’ ground...
The Major League Baseball season is a long one - six months and 162 games. That fact lessens the impact of each individual game. You don't see teams getting too upset over losing a game, or even losing two or three in a row. Teams can have bad months and not be out of the race, they just have to bounce back and make up for the bad month with a good month. Most teams don't...
The San Diego Padres have a number of players still residing in Peoria, Arizona for their extended Spring Training Program. Many of these players will be on the Eugene Emeralds and AZL Padres roster when their season begins in June while others will get to show their mettle when the inevitable injury bug hits.

Clayton Richard and two relievers combined on a four-hitter, Chase Headley hit a grand slam and Andy Parrino had his first big league homer for the San Diego Padres, who beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-4 on Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep.
Headley's second career slam, off Scott Elbert in the eighth, ended his 0-for-12 slump to start the season. Headley also walked three times...

First and foremost, happy Easter everyone. The Pirates got their first win of the season last night in dramatic fashion. Alex Presley had a game winning walk off infield single. Jeff Karstens pitched a great game and the bullpen did their part as well. The recap is here.It was interesting that the Pirates went with Tabata in the leadoff spot with Presley batting second last night...
