Pirates Demote Brian Burres

The Bucs have demoted Brian Burres to Indianapolis to make room for new addition Dana Eveland. It appears likely that Eveland will start Monday or Tuesday. 

Burres had a couple of very nice starts a month or so ago, but he's headed backward since then, and his year-to-date ERA of 5.62 turns out to be only slightly lower than his career ERA. He also struck out only one more batter than he walked. I wasn't a fan of the trade that brought Eveland here, but I can see how the Pirates think that just about anyone would be an improvement.
