Five reasons why I wish I was an Astros fan

Seemingly every season, one reaches a certain point where they can no longer bear to watch the Rockies. For most, that time has already come and gone in 2014. There is further a point where one reaches such a saturation level of piling on the Rockies that they can no longer bear to watch or read the media that continues to bash the club. Unless my pulse on the Denver market is way...

Last week, the Pittsburgh Pirates designated left-handed pitcher Wandy Rodriguez for assignment. He has struggled mightily this season, as he has been dealing with an arthritic elbow the entire year.If the medicals on him aren't as bad as many believe, the feeling is some team will take a chance on him, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.#149449627 / gettyimages.comRodriguez...

Pittsburgh Pirates baseball: Wandy Rodriguez is no longer a Pirates, is that enough?

Brandon Cumpton The Pittsburgh Pirates designated Wandy Rodriguez for assignment on Thursday thus ending his career with the Pirates. Rodriguez came to the Pirates in 2012 in a trade that sent Triple A all-star left handed pitcher Rudy Owens, left hander Colton Cain and outfielder Robbie Grossman to the Astros. Rodriguez performed admirably for the Pirates in his limited starts for...

Pittsburgh Pirates designate Wandy Rodriguez for assignment

Wandy Rodriguez After another horrendous outing, the Pittsburgh Pirates have designated starter Wandy Rodriguez for assignment. The move was necessary as the team lingers at the bottom of the National League Central and one disappointing outing after another for the 35-year-old. On Wednesday Rodriguez surrendered six innings in just 1.2 innings in the Pirates 9-8 victory over the...

Edinson Volquez tries to stay in the rotation against the Nationals

I would read the Pirates’ decision to DFA Wandy Rodriguez today as a signal that the club realizes that they’re in a very serious amount of trouble in regards to contending in 2014 and that they can no longer mess around with players who are actively hurting their chances to win when better options exist in Triple-A. If I were Edinson Volquez, that knowledge would make me awfully...

Wandy Rodriguez DFA’d

- The Wandy Rodriguez era is over in Pittsburgh. The Bucs designated him for assignment after he was shelled again last night. His diastrous 2014 numbers: 0-2, 6.75 ERA, just 26.2 innings over 6 starts, and 10 home runs allowed. As I (and several others) wrote after the game last night, this was a no brainer. Wandy just doesn’t look like he has enough left to be even mediocre...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 46

I’d like to think I had a pretty good idea that last night was going to go very bad for Wandy Rodriguez.  In my wildest nightmares I didn’t see they coming. Wandy only gets one earned run, further proving how ridiculous not counting earned runs is.  Hell,  the error was on him! Remember that when…

Pirates' bats bust out in 9-8 victory over Orioles

When the Pirates scored eight runs over the first two innings Wednesday, it should have been enough to get left-hander Wandy Rodriguez his first victory of the season. It probably would have been — if Rodriguez had pitched well enough to stay in the game beyond the second inning. The Pirates overcame Rodriguez's brief, awful outing and outlasted the Baltimore Orioles, 9-8...

Another day, another game

I feel like this hastily scribbled lineup card perfectly describes how I feel about this game tonight. “I dunno, whatever, just get out there and get it over with.” Wandy Rodriguez pitched decently in his return from the disabled list against the Brewers last week, though that was all completely lost by the Melancon Implosion of the ninth inning that sent the Pirates spiraling...

Series Preview: Pirates vs. Orioles

Tuesday, 7:05 (ROOT): Miguel Gonzalez vs. Francisco Liriano Wednesday, 7:05 (ROOT): Chris Tillman vs. Wandy Rodriguez The Bucs are home this week against the two mid-atlantic teams, and after a subpar road trip they need to get back on track at PNC. Losing either series isn’t really an option at this point, and even though these are two tough matchups, a 3-3 week won’t really...

The return of Wandy Rodriguez

The sort of situation the Pirates are in with Wandy Rodriguez is always a tricky one to try and sort out from a fan’s perspective. Rodriguez got hammered in a few starts with the Pirates and looked really awful in the process, then went on the disabled list with a knee problem (and despite all of the jokes from fans and media about how his primary injury was being terrible, he...

Pirates' Wandy Rodriguez rehabbing with mixed results

Although he struck out five and threw "all his pitches," results were decidedly mixed for LHP Wandy Rodriguez in his second rehab start Tuesday at Double-A Altoona, reports Tom Singer of MLB.com. After going nine-up nine-down, Rodriguez endured a seven-run fourth inning, walking the leadoff batter and allowing six hits (two home runs). In all, the veteran lefty threw 93...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Solving the starting pitching problem

Wandy Rodriguez The Pittsburgh Pirates find themselves at the bottom of the National League Central and both the offense and the starting pitching have left much for fans to desire. At the beginning of the season, pitching was believed to be a key factor for Pittsburgh. Last season the pitching staff played a big part in the team’s success, but this year it has been the exact opposite...

A few updates and thoughts on the Wandy Rodriguez situation

The news about Wandy Rodriguez hitting the disabled list for a knee problem came at the end of the work day yesterday, so I didn’t have a chance to post much about it. The situation is a bit clearer now, so getting a post together today is probably a little bit more useful anyway. There’s been no indication from the Pirates how serious Wandy’s knee injury is, but if you put...

The Pirates placed left-hander Wandy Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list Monday with right knee inflammation. It’s unclear how or when Rodriguez injured the knee. He pitched Saturday and was scheduled to pitch Thursday. “Wandy is not sure how he hurt his knee,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “He’d gone to the training room after his last start and complained of...

Wandy Rodriguez to the DL

Well, this wasn’t too hard to see coming. Wandy is headed to the disabled list with “inflammation in his right knee.” Maybe that’s a legitimate issue for him (and might explain some of his recent woes) and maybe it’s not, but either way he’s out of the rotation for now, which is honestly probably a good thing for the short-term. Jared Hughes has been called up to take...

Knee injury sends Wandy Rodriguez to the disabled list

Wandy Rodriguez was scheduled to start Thursday for the Pirates, but instead the left-hander has been placed on the disabled list with right knee inflammation. Pittsburgh has called up right-hander Jared Hughes to replace Rodriguez on the roster, but he’s a reliever and the Pirates figure to add a starter to fill in for him by Thursday.
