SPLASH LANDING

Garrett Jones hammers ball into Allegheny

Splash hits in San Francisco and Pittsburgh have become a pretty cool part of baseball. But while there have been 91 total homers hit into McCovey Cove on the fly since AT&T Park opened in 2000, there had been just one homer hit into the Allegheny River behind PNC Park during a game since its opening in 2001. On July 6, 2002, Daryle Ward of the Houston Astros smashed a ball out...

First Pitch: A Garrett Jones Trade Might Not Be a Guarantee

Throughout most of the off-season, it seemed inevitable that the Pittsburgh Pirates would trade Joel Hanrahan. There also seemed to be a strong possibility that Garrett Jones could be traded.

First Pitch: Garrett Jones Has Earned a 2013 Roster Spot and a Raise

Heading in to the 2012 season, if you would have asked me to guess whether Garrett Jones would have returned to the Pirates in 2013, I probably would have said no. The first baseman is making $2.25 M this year, and because arbitration heavily favors home runs, he could very easily double that salary next year in his second of four arbitration years. Jones looked like nothing more...

Why Did Garrett Jones Go to Arbitration?

The Pittsburgh Pirates and Garrett Jones went to an arbitration hearing today, which was a bit of a surprise considering the two sides were just $250 K apart. Jones filed for a $2.5 M salary as a Super Two player, while the Pirates filed for $2.25 M. The close proximity of the salaries raises the question: why didn’t the two sides come to a deal in the middle? The situation really...
