Found April 23, 2012 on North Side Notch:
Rudy Owens started this Sunday for the Indianapolis Indians. Owens bursted onto the prospect scene following his 2009 season when he won his first of two Minor League Pitcher of the Year Awards. He is now starting his 2nd season in AAA and is was ranked the organization’s #13 prospect heading into this season. Owens was extremely impressive on Sunday as he pitched seven scoreless innings. He gave up just two hits and struck out five while not walking a batter. I’ll start off showing all of his strikeouts followed by an inning by inning breakdown. All of Owens’ strikeouts can be found here: Owens had a 1-2-3 first inning with a strikeout and two ground outs. In the 2nd inning, Owens gave up a lead off single but that was all. Something happened to the video of third batter and it didn’t upload, but it was a fly out. In the 3rd inning, Owens hit the lead off batter but settled down to retire the next three. In the 4th, Owens retired the side 1-2-3. In the 5th, Owens started the i...

Jim Callis on Pedro Alvarez

A week or so ago, Baseball America's JJ Cooper published subscriber-only a piece that discusses Pedro Alvarez. An American League scout opined that if he didn't know Alvarez's pedigree, he'd be tempted to call him a non-prospect. Jim Callis follows up on that today by discussing some of the biggest position player draft busts and concluding:  Perhaps if Alvarez...

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.

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

The Pirates' offense is so bad ... (How bad is it?)

For some context, here's how much worse the Pirates are than everyone in the National League right now when it comes to hitting: Tm R/G G PA AB R ▾ H 2B 3B HR BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+ TB ATL 5.69 16 613 546 91 144 29 4 18 51 115 .264 .324 .430 .754 111 235 STL 5.12 16 625 559 82 157 28 6 20 51 126 .281 .346 .460 .806...

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...
