Pirates set their final roster

The Pirates set their Opening Day roster this afternoon, but I spent most of the day grading tests and working on a season preview for tomorrow, so I’m just getting around to putting the post together now. There is exactly one surprise with this final roster: Charlie Morton’s ugly spring indicated coupled with the rehab from his hip surgery landed him on the disabled list,...

News and notes: Roster taking shape, Polanco, Bryant

With John Holdzkom being assigned to Indy on Tuesday, there are only two decisions left to be made regarding the Pirates’€™ opening day roster. It’s Jared Hughes vs. Stolmy Pimentel for the last bullpen spot, and a three way battle between Jaff Decker, Pedro Florimon, and Andrew Lambo for the final bench spot. In the bullpen, either Hughes or Holdzkom was going to have to...

Domonic Brown hit perhaps the most meaningless homer ever

In the Phillies’ 3-2 win over the Pirates on Wednesday, Domonic Brown hit a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning. Good for him. It’s a Spring Training homer, but whatever. But when Brown homered, the Phillies were already winning 3-2. And it was the bottom of the ninth. Huh? Something’s off here. I’ll let the Phillies’ website explain what happened. John Holdzkom...

Stolmy Pimentel < 500

The Stolmy Pimentel Story is a pretty straightforward in 2015. He had a rough go of 2014 and spent time bouncing between the bullpen and the disabled list, because he was out of options. The Pirates wanted to hang on to him at all costs, though, because in the 32 2/3 innings that he did pitch with the Pirates, he struck out 38 hitters and threw his fastball 93.3 mph on average. The...

News and notes

Following the Steve Lombardozzi deal the other day, the Pirates made a few other minor trades later in the week: They acquired pitcher Arquimedes Caminero from the Marlins for cash. Caminero has a heck of a name, but he isn’t likely to make the squad – although he could force his way into the mix for the last bullpen spot since he is out of options. He throws hard and has appeared...

OK, so now THIS is the biggest series of the year

The late afternoon yesterday was not kind to the Pirates: in Pittsburgh, Chris Heisey hit his second home run of the afternoon (and only his seventh of the year!) to help the Reds steal a 3-2 win from the Pirates. In St. Louis, the Cardinals turned a 6-4 deficit in the bottom of the eighth inning into a 9-6 win over the Cubs. The effect was dramatic: instead of being tied with the...

WASHINGTON (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have put right-hander Stolmy Pimentel on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right ankle and activated right-handed reliever John Axford.

Pirates acquire famous mustache-haver, occasionally effective reliever, John Axford

After watching Stolmy Pimentel and Brandon Cumpton turn close games into sure-fire losses on back-to-back days, the Pirates acquired John Axford from the Indians this evening. It doesn’t appear that the Indians will get anything in return for Axford other than salary relief, as the Pirates are now on the hook for what’s left of the $4.5 million the Indians owed him this year...

Tigers 8, Pirates 4

The Pirates had a good chance to stay hot as they rolled in to Detroit on a two game winning streak, facing a young pitcher making his debut while their best starter in the second half took the mound. Things were going along quite well for about half the game, but then it all fell apart and their recent momentum came to a halt. The offense was good enough against Buck Farmer, generating...

Unlike the last two nights, this was a plain old loss that you can’t really complain too much about. It had its frustrating moments for sure, but the Pirates were outplayed from start to finish and that’s going to happen from time to time. The thing is, that’s what makes the two walk off losses with all the men LOB with RISP hurt so much. You’re going to get flat-out beat...

The trouble with the bullpen

If you want to look at the first two games of this Pirates/Cardinals series with absolutely zero emotion and only with cold logic, the conclusion that you would probably draw is this: the Pirates have continued to play well this week, but a combination of bad luck and a thin bullpen has cost them two games that could have been wins. The Pirates play a lot of close games: three of...
