ANDY MARTE RUMORS & GOSSIP
I had the Pirates game on last night and was dozing off throughout the whole game, but my one main takeaway was this:
Of course, hours after the Pirates fail to trade for pitching help, Jeff Locke gives up a game-breaking home run to Andy Marte.
Andy Marte, you might recall, was once the successor to Chipper Jones in Atlanta, then was dealt to Boston for Edgar Renteria, then was...
PHOENIX -- A car picked up new Diamondbacks third baseman Andy Marte at Sky Harbor International about the time the game started Thursday as clubhouse attendant Jimmy Garrett neatly stitched the No. 28 and "Marte" on the back of a blank Sedona red jersey.
The paperwork already had been taken care of -- Marte had signed his contract before catching his flight from Fresno...

When you think of Andy Marte, you would probably remember a player who was at one point regarded as the number one third base prospect. This was 10 years ago.
As noted by Phoenix Sports Kings own, Manuel Childs, Marte came through the Atlanta Braves farm system. He was regarded as the top third base prospect in the nation but struggled to find...
PHOENIX -- Andy Marte hit a two-run home run and Aaron Hill added a solo shot in the sixth inning to power the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 7-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night.
Nick Ahmed hit the Diamondbacks' third home run, an eighth-inning solo shot that was the first of his major-league career.
Marte, called up from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day to help...

Today the Indians got their man, in the form of a shiny new four-year $56 million contract to secure the services of Nick Swisher.
Swisher is known to most for his ebullient and outgoing nature both in the clubhouse and with fans.
But to me, he’s most known as Dandy Marte’s lone strikeout victim in a career of otherwise spectacular failure. Marte (née Andy) was once touted...
Matt LaPorta, the slugger who hits with power and consistency in AAA, is currently with the Indians but not getting a real chance. They are many of us who feel that he is better than Shelley Duncan at the plate and in the field.
Brandon Phillips is an all star player that the Indians gave up on too soon. Andy Marte is the forever promising third baseman, who the Braves were smart...
Pirates’ players and friends in Sunday’s winter league action:
Caribes de Anzoategui 2, Tigres de Aragua 1
Wil Ledezma took the loss as Los Caribes broke a 1-1 tie with a 7th inning home run. Ledezma also gave up a single in the 6th, but promptly picked that runner off base. LF Jorge Cortes had 2 hits in the game, including an RBI single in the...
