The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping MLB (8/19/14)

Yesterday started out well with the Cubs under 7 being an easy win.  However, the night session crashed quickly.  The Play of the Day was over after the first inning when Atlanta tee’d off on Vance Worley for 6 first inning runs.  Bud Norris continued to throw well post All Star break and the White Sox bullpen melted down again for the 2nd loser of the night.  Here is a recap...

See stubborn pigeons give Miggy the bird during at-bat (VIDEO)

How many Major League Baseball players does it take to spook a pair of pigeons? More than two, apparently. Two bold birds caused a stoppage in play during Miguel Cabrera’s first-inning at-bat against Pittsburgh Pirates starter Vance Worley on Wednesday night, showing they weren’t scared of any bats, baseballs or people. Worley tried stomping in the pigeons’ direction to scare...

Pigeons hold up Pirates-Tigers game in first inning

Hey, is it all right with you guys if we just hang out around home plate while you’re playing baseball? Oh, wait — that’s Miguel Cabrera! Let’s just stay here and watch him. We’re not in the way, are we? Cool? Cool.  We’re not positive these were the exact thoughts of the two pigeons that crashed Wednesday’s game between the Pirates and Tigers in the first inning....

Vance Worley (SP, PIT) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues ANALYSIS: Vance Worley has made quite a resurgence with the Bucs this year after getting rocked on a consistent basis to the tune of a 7.21 ERA in 2013 with the Twins. Now back in the National League, he has regained his form, with a 2.43 ERA in 55.2 […]

Worley, Padres bullpen shackle Padres

The lack of two offensive mainstays, one the reigning Most Valuable Player, generally does not coincide with a third consecutive victory that lifts a team further above .500 than it has been all season. With continued strong pitching, the Pirates made it work. Vance Worley did the honors Friday night as the Pirates beat the San Diego Padres, 2-1, at PNC Park. They improved their...

Week 19 MLB Waiver Wire:Vance Worley a worthy add

In this week’s edition of the Weekly Waiver Wire, we have a speedster on the base paths, a forgotten former Phillie, a new kid on the block, a former All-Star, and a nobody turned somebody. Week 19 MLB Waiver Wire players to add: Vance Worley (SP,PIT,32% owned): Ratios are gold these days and Vance has your back in that category. He has posted a great 2.43 ERA, not to mention he...

The clock is ticking for Vanimal

Vance Worley probably doesn’t have much time left in the Pirates’ rotation. Between the rumors that the Pirates are interested in acquiring a starter and Gerrit Cole’s recovery from his lat problem, it’s hard to imagine Worley’s got more than a couple of starts left as a Pirate. Tonight, he’ll face off against Josh Beckett in Beckett’s first start since July 6th, as...

Vance Worley joins the pitching staff

- The Pirates will send Vance Worley to the hill on Sunday afternoon in Miami, as they need another starter after Francisco Liriano‘s injury. With the addition of Worley, three-fifths of the current Pirates rotation will have made several starts in Triple-A Indy this year. And yet, all of a sudden they seem to be getting better starting pitching than they have all year. Will Worley...

Vance Worley delivers pitch with too much rosin (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Minnesota Twins pitcher Vance Worley's first pitch of the third inning was delivered with a bit too much rosin during Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. As Worley delivered the first pitch to Nate McLouth, an unmistakable cloud of rosin came off the ball near the pitcher's mound. The cloud was so big and such...

Vance Worley a nice move by the Twins

After trading Denard Span to the Nationals earlier in the off season, it seemed rather odd that the Minnesota Twins would also trade his replacement, Ben Revere. However, the Twins improved their present rotation with Vance Worley in the deal and also received a decent prospect in Trevor May. With the myriad of problems the Twins had last season, the pitching was the largest...
