Aramis Ramirez Returns to Pittsburgh

Brent Morel started at third base for the Pirates on Monday. The same Brent Morel who has a career .272 on-base percentage. He started again at third base last night as well. This must have struck fear into the hearts of Pittsburgh Pirates fans, perhaps giving them some flashbacks to the bad old days. Thankfully, […]

It looks like Brent Morel is coming up…

I thought the Brent Morel era was over….you thought it was over….but here we are.

Pirates claim Brent Morel, designate Chase d'Arnaud for assignment
