Ray Searage Shouldn’t Have to Do Much for Neftali Feliz

Every time the Pirates acquire a new pitcher, the analysis is basically the same. It’s either super lazy, or super insightful, and I’m not really sure which. Here’s how it goes: while the given pitcher might have had his struggles lately, the stuff is there, and Ray Searage ought to be able to work his magic. Every time. Some fans of some baseball teams wouldn’t even be able...

Game 118: Pirates 4 Diamondbacks 1 (the JA Happ post)

I spent a long day at work yesterday and got home just as the Pirate game was ending, so when it ended and I thought about writing the recap my first thought was, “this was a pretty run of the mill game,” and I put the recap off for a bit, because I didn’t think there was much to write. Sometime around midnight, I remembered JA Happ and I realized there was plenty to write...

Radhames Liz Is Not a Lock to Make the Pirates Bullpen

Which relievers the Pirates choose to round out their bullpen is perhaps the only roster question left to be answered during this Spring Training. As Charlie Wilmoth of has pointed out, John Holdzkom‘s hold on a roster spot might be tenuous at best because he is one of the few relievers with options remaining. Arquimedes Caminero, Radhames Liz, Jeff Locke, and...

Radhames Liz < 500

One of my absolute favorite things about the Neal Huntington front office is that they absolutely do not care what anyone else thinks about what they do. People freaked out last year about the Cole Tucker draft pick and then that the Pirates didn’t save a significant amount of slot money with his bonus, but the Pirates just kind of shrugged, pointed out how young he was, and moved...

News and notes: Liz, PirateFest, more

It was a busy week for the Pirates – winter meetings, caravan, Piratefest, and a number of moves. One move that came toward the end of the week and may have gone under the radar a bit was the (official) signing of pitcher Radhames Liz.

Pirates DFA Ike Davis and fill out 40-man roster for Rule 5 deadline, plus Radhames Liz and Pedro Florimon
