This is the first of a series covering the Pirates’ minor league depth position by position. The idea is to take a look at the players the system has available at a position, level by level. No organization has prospects at every position and every level. It’s interesting to see just how well the Pirates are covered at each spot by players who at least have some chance to turn...
The Mexican Pacific League playoffs began yesterday. This league uses a playoff format like we’re used to seeing in the US leagues. The top 6 teams are in the playoffs, with #1 Culiacan playing the #6 Navojoa, #2 Mexicali vs. #5 Mochis, and #3 Obregon vs. #4 Hermosillo in the best-of-7 first round. Los Venados de Mazatlan, with Pirates’ Rogelio Noris, finished in last...
If you have grown up in Baltimore you know what I am talking about - if you don't know what I am speaking of allow me to explain. Virtually everyone that has grown up in the greater Baltimore area suffers from a unique condition called the "Baltimore Inferiority Complex" (BIC).

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun has produced a good amount of Orioles information today; let's discuss the highlights.
The Orioles are fairly confident they will add another outfielder, though that wouldn't necessarily portend an Adam Jones trade. The Orioles were not overly intrigued by the Braves' offer of Jair Jurrjens, Martin Prado, and a minor league...
Welcome to 2012, Pirate fans! Hopefully this year will be better than the last. I spent the last few days of 2011 and the first couple days of 2012 turning over post ideas and discussion points in my head, so the long holiday break here at WHYGAVS is over. Let's start with what's the Pirates' most pressing current need for what's left of the off-season: the starting...
The Rangers acquired infielder Brandon Snyder from the Orioles for cash considerations on Tuesday. Texas also re-signed left-handed-hitting first baseman Brad Nelson to a Minor League contract. He will be assigned to Minor League camp.
The Baltimore Orioles have obtained outfielder Jai Miller from the Oakland Athletics, who parted with the part-time player for cash considerations. Miller was designated for assignment by Oakland on Dec. 23 after the A's received four players for pitcher Gio Gonzalez. The 26-year-old Miller went 3 for 12 with a homer and two RBIs for Oakland last season after being called up in September.
