Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Locke and Wainwright at seven on trade deadline day. The best team in baseball might consider trading away some upside to try to restore parity to the hapless rest of MLB.
I'm in favor of getting Morneau, ah? Iowa Pirate
Jones is not the problem -- right field is a giant sucking sound. If you can live with Jones' glove in RF, dumping the lunchbox to upgrade 1B -- would make sense. Send Snider to AAA? Demote him? Keep him over Tabata? Trade him?
Maybe Snider could pull the Beer Fort on those portages.
Tony Sanchez on radio pregame, I'm not as impressed with him as he is with himself. Iowa Pirate
Apparently ESPN canceled its Nationals vs Blue Jays World Series coverage tonight to show a little market engine that could playing .602 ball. Drag Queen Molina injured eyebrow pencil on DL. Matt Holliday's Terrible No Good Bad Day in Left to continue?
I could watch these four games til the end of time. By all means please yes one more tomorrow. Matheny is frozen in LaRoche's old tree stand at PNC. Glad none of the upside got traded today. Although not generously contributing to MLB parity, we need all the upside for the DYNASTY. RF? Lambo's more than earned a chance. Bickle and Tabata both have enough upside to not cut. They certainly have not played well starting, but at least have value on the bench. Especially if Tabata had his stupid kiss tattoo on his neck improved by a much larger tattoo of a face around the lips. Who the face could be? Clemente might look like him kissing Nobata, and his ex sounds like a nutjob, so maybe a large version of his own face? or Bob Nutting?
