Vance Worley DFA’d to make room for Joe Blanton

The Pirates just tweeted that it will be Vance Worley and not Deolis Guerra that will be designated for assignment to make room for Joe Blanton tonight. Since I spent most of my time assuming the Pirates were going to use Blanton in the Guerra role and that Guerra was the most likely to  be DFA to make room for Blanton, let’s take a few seconds and consider what’s going on with...

Nats spoil the party

The Pirates had a lot going for them on Saturday. They were off to a great start in the series, had Burnett and Cole set to go for a sweep, Aramis Ramirez was arriving, the offense seemed to be clicking, it was a beautiful day, and they’ve been great in front of huge crowds at PNC (previously undefeated in Saturday home games). Well, sometimes you get an unexpected result, kind...

The Greatest Game in PNC Park History(?)

I feel pretty comfortable saying that at this point. Go ahead an add the “regular season” caveat if you want – that’s fine. But when you add up the implications, the energy in the ballpark, the crazy amount of ridiculous things that happened, and the epic finish….it does not get any better (for July). Like, I mean, c’mon. A.J. Burnett hit a freaking home run!  That happened...

Pirates' Guerra gets first career win

  Deolis Guerra didn't mind waiting 14 innings to collect his first career win. Besides, after 10 years in the Minors, what's a couple of hours or extra innings? "Unbelievable, amazing. It feels great," Guerra told "It's a moment I've waited for my whole life, and it finally came true." And the moment sure came at a time when the Pirates needed it. It's not as if Guerra...

Game 76: Pirates 5 Tigers 4

Somehow, a game that Gerrit Cole left in the seventh inning with a 4-2 lead turned into a story about Deolis Guerra and Gorkys Hernandez. Actually, “somehow” is the wrong word because we know exactly how it happened: a two-run JD Martinez home run off of Tony Watson in the seventh inning. Regardless, on to Guerra, Hernandez, and a little bit of Neil Walker. The Pirates have played...

At long last

It took them a loooong while to do it this season, and it certainly took a loooong while tonight, but the Pirates finally managed to win an extra inning game on the road. Aside from the lack of sleep that comes as a result, wins like that feel pretty great, and this was no exception. Had the Pirates lost, the story would have been about how Gerrit Cole and Tony Watson couldn’t...

Pirates' Guerra finally gets his call

After nine long years in the Minor Leagues, Deolis Guerra has found himself on a Major League roster. When the Pirates put Rob Scahill on the 15-day disabled list, Guerra – a right-handed reliever – was called upon to take his place. “I was having a good season down here (at Indianapolis), but I wasn't expecting the call today because this ballclub is doing such a great...
