A-Rod Passes Mays As Yankees Beat Orioles

These are the kinds of games that win pennants. The Yanks 4-3 win Thursday night comes on the heels of losing 2 of 3 in Toronto, which ended the streak of five straight winning series, including  sweeps in two series. Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner at the top of the order set the tone with 4 hits and 3 runs scored.  The top two RBI men, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira  delivered...

Spring Training game 8 lineup: 3/9/15

The Yankees are trotting out what could be their opening day lineup today, as they face the Rays from George M. Steinbrenner Field. “Big Mike” Michael Pineda gets his first start of the spring, hoping to build upon his success last year. The Yankees just hope he can stay healthy, which has been an issue for him over his short career. A-Rod starts for a second straight day, this...

Antonio Bastardo < 500

With most of the early spring training talk about the Pirates being extremely positive, their bullpen is sort of the elephant in the room. Obviously Tony Watson and Mark Melancon are great and John Holdzkom was promising down the stretch last year, but the Bucs’ bullpen blew a lot of leads last year. They did so especially when asked to throw more than two or three innings in a...

Pirates Go to the Pitch-Framing Well, Add Francisco Cervelli

The Pirates just followed a similar path, sending Justin Wilson to the Yankees in exchange for backstop Francisco Cervelli.

Yankees Trade Francisco Cervelli To Pirates For Reliever Justin Wilson

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired catcher Francisco Cervelli from the New York Yankees in exchange for reliever Justin Wilson. Mainly a backup with the Yankees, the 28-year-old Cervelli batted .301 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 49 games last season.

Francisco Cervelli for Justin Wilson

- The Pirates may have already found their Russell Martin replacement, even though Russ isn’t officially gone yet. On Wednesday night they acquired catcher Francisco Cervelli from the Yankees, and sent Justin Wilson to New York in exchange. So this means Russ is gone for sure? Not officially, but pretty much, yeah. Jon Heyman says otherwise, but I don’t think anyone really believes...

Pirates acquire catcher Francisco Cervelli in trade with Yankees

The Pirates must not feel confident about their ability to re-sign free agent catcher Russell Martin. On Wednesday evening they acquired catcher Francisco Cervelli from the Yankees for left handed pitcher Justin Wilson. With the Yankees Cervelli was clearly second at catcher behind Brian McCann.

This was definitely one of the more brutal Pirate losses of the season. They looked to be on track to end a three game skid with a really nice road performance against what might be the best team in the NL.
