JORDY MERCER RUMORS & GOSSIP

2014 Recaps: The Pirates Have Finally Found Their Shortstop in Jordy Mercer

The Pittsburgh Pirates may finally have a shortstop for the foreseeable future. The team hasn’t had a solid shortstop since they traded away Jack Wilson in 2009, with Wilson nearing the end of his career. They went with Ronny Cedeno, then defensive specialist Clint Barmes, before giving Jordy Mercer a shot in 2013. Mercer did well in his time at the position last year, but not...

Some thoughts on a Monday morning that somehow sees the Pirates in a playoff position

I watched yesterday’s game right up to Jordy Mercer’s home run. I had plans to go to a concert and do some tailgating ahead of time, and Mercer’s homer to give the Pirates a 5-0 lead was pretty much perfectly timed with when I was planning on leaving. Two hitters before Mercer, though, I saw Gerrit Cole up at the plate hacking away at Travis Wood and the thought that he was...

Is Jordy Mercer Here to Stay?

In the preseason we at BaseballProf ranked Jordy Mercer 29th among all second basemen and 27th among all shortstops, writing the following in our 2014 Draft Guide: At 6’3, 205 lbs, Mercer has a pretty large frame that could fill out over the next few years, so a 15-20 HR season isn’t entirely out of the question. If he can drop his strikeout rate to 14-15%, he’ll look much...

Pirates’ Jordy Mercer’s home run destroys woman’s beer (VIDEO)

Pirates infielder Jordy Mercer hit a home run Wednesday in sunny San Francisco that absolutely drank the heck out of some woman’s beer.  Peering into the sunlight, said lady (in blue) didn’t have the presence of mind to think, “hey, that ball is coming right at me. Hey, there’s no way I’m going to catch this thing.  Hey wait, I’m holding a beer.  I like beer.  I wouldn’t...

Watch: Pirates SS Jordy Mercer’s home run lands in and absolutely destroys fan’s beer

It’s probably not a good idea to attempt to catch a home run ball with one’s beer. But that’s what happened to one unlucky fan during Wednesday’s Pirates-Giants game at AT&T Park. After Pirates SS Jordy Mercer blasted a home run to put his team ahead, 5-4, a group of fans attempted to catch the ball. And one particular fan sat and watched with a beer in her hand, and...
