NLDS Preview: Of course it's the Cardinals

TOn September 27, 2006, two friends of mine and I went down to PNC Park for a Pirates/Astros game. The season was beyond over for the Pirates; they were 65-92 headed into the game and they were already five games into what was ended up being an eight-game losing streak. The Astros were in the middle of a desperate run at a collapsing Cardinal team; they'd won seven in a row to...

Pirates Activate James McDonald from 60 Day DL, DFA Him Immediately

Sometimes a guy gets cut or traded and I’m kind of sad.  Not necessarily for the team or anything, but for the player.  Players like Brandon Inge were infuriating, but the game has passed him by.  That’s life.  Still I was glad to see him go for the team’s sake. Ian Snell is another.  I’m…

Does Jeff Clement deserve another chance?

As Pat over at WHYGAVS mentioned earlier today, it is amazing that we are even discussing Jeff Clement. If you remember correctly, Clement broke camp as the Pirates’ starting first baseman in 2010 after he was acquired from Seattle in 2009 in the trade that sent Jack Wilson and Ian Snell to the Mariners. He didn’t fare too well hitting just .201/.237/.368. He struck out in 24...

News and notes

There hasn’t been much going on since Piratefest, but here are some tidbits: The Bucs signed Jeff Clement to a minor league deal today. This is possibly the least exciting news ever, but like I said, it’s a slow news week. Clement basically fell off the face of the earth after failing miserably in his chance to become the everyday first baseman once he was acquired from Seattle...
