Found March 21, 2012 on North Side Notch:
The Pirates cut 1B Jeff Clement, OF Brandon Boggs, P Tim Wood, and P Daniel Cabrera from Major League camp this morning. There really aren’t any surprises out of this bunch. Boggs and Wood were the two out of the four that had an outside chance at making the club (very outside chance). Boggs was only 2 for 20 this spring. Wood put up a 2.25 ERA over 4 IP and will probably go back to serving as Indianapolis’ closer, like he did for much of last season.

Spring training is too long (and other odds and ends)

I really like Charlie's piece today on Matt Hague and Josh Harrison being bit players no matter what they do in camp this spring. I joked yesterday that I wanted to make a Venn Diagram of people that love Matt Hague and people that hated Steve Pearce, because I suspect that they're many of the same people even though Hague and Pearce seem, to me, to be very similar players...
