Cubs 7, Pirates 5

Wandy Rodriguez had a pretty poor start and lost to the Cubs for the second time in as many starts. Jeanmar Gomez had a sloppy relief outing as well. That was unfortunate, because the Pirates ended up making a game of it with 5 solo homers, but that wasn’t enough. Tonight, the #Pirates hit five home runs and lost for the first time since August 4, 2007 against the #Reds http:/â€...

Game 3: Cubs 3 Pirates 2

For three innings, I was awfully worried about Wandy Rodriguez. His fastball didn’t seem to have much zip on it, and he wasn’t fooling the Cubs at all. The Cubs dinged him for a run in each of the first three innings, and even when they weren’t scoring, Jason Hammel was fouling off six pitches before finally swinging and missing one for a strikeout. As I wrote before the game...

Wandy Rodriguez goes for a sweep (weather permitting)

The Pirates and Cubs are scheduled to play at 12:35 this afternoon, though the weather forecast is not pleasant. Since the Pirates and Cubs play about 100 more games this year and the two clubs played 16 innings last night, I’d be willing to guess they pull the trigger on canceling this one early, if it comes to it. Wandy Rodriguez is scheduled to go for the Pirates. Obviously...

First Pitch: Wandy Rodriguez Will Most Likely Land the Pirates a Draft Pick

Wandy Rodriguez will likely land a draft pick for the Pirates in 2014. Photo Credit: David Hague When the Wandy Rodriguez trade first went down, I wasn’t a big fan of the deal. Rodriguez had been struggling with the Astros in the two months leading up to the trade, and had seen his strikeouts dropping in each of the last few seasons. Simply put, he wasn’t the same pitcher he...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Trade deadline update

Some numbered thoughts heading into Tuesday’s MLB 4:00PM non-waiver trade deadline… 1-5:  Wandy Rodriguez 1.  I’ve been very critical of Pirates’ GM Neal Huntington over the past year, but I was impressed with last week’s SP Wandy Rodriguez trade with Houston.  While other clubs were still jockeying with the Cubs for Ryan Dempster, and waiting to see if the Phillies...

First Pitch: Why I Don’t Like the Wandy Rodriguez Trade

I thought a lot about Wandy Rodriguez tonight. I really didn’t have any other choice. I was driving down to Florida today, which is a 13 hour trip from Virginia. The main purpose of that trip is helping my parents move to Orlando tomorrow. The second part of the trip will be heading over to Bradenton to cover the GCL and the Bradenton Marauders on Thursday and Friday. One of the...
