First Pitch: Reviewing the Pirates Career of Tim Alderson

Tim Alderson’s career with the Pirates ended today with a trade for Russ Canzler. The Tim Alderson/Russ Canzler trade wasn’t exactly a blockbuster deal. It was a marginal trade, and the type of deal you’d expect in early-to-mid July as the hot stove season starts to heat up. The Pirates sent away a guy who profiled as a potential middle reliever, and who wouldn’t have even...

Pirates swap Tim Alderson for Russ Canzler in minor move

The Pirates first move of Trade Deadline Season, they sent minor league reliever Tim Alderson to the Orioles today in return for Four Corners guy Russ Canzler. Canzler is your protypical Quadruple-A guy; he never really hit well for a corner infielder/outfielder in the Cubs' system until he was way too old for his level, then he had a nice year with Tampa's Triple-A affiliate...

Prospect Notebook: Trading From the Rule 5 Candidates

Every year we keep track of the upcoming Rule 5 eligible players, tracking who the Pittsburgh Pirates will have to protect the following off-season. The term typically used is “The Rule 5 Roster Crunch”. That term has led to a big misconception about the Rule 5 draft. The Pirates are at risk of losing players every year in the Rule 5 draft. They lost Nathan Adcock in the 2010...

San Francisco Wins Battle of ’07 Multiple Draft Picks

The 2007 amateur draft was an exciting time if you were a fan of the San Diego Padres, the San Francisco Giants, the Texas Rangers or the Toronto Blue Jays. Each organization had at least five picks before the second round, thanks to supplemental picks obtained for the losses of free agents the previous winter. It’s been five years since that draft, so it’s a good time to look...
