Tigers acquire David Price

The Tigers have acquired David Price. Tampa will apparently get big-league players back in return, which sort of makes sense, in that the Tigers' minor league system isn't the best. It's apparently...

Orioles acquire Andrew Miller

The Orioles have acquired Andrew Miller for pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez, a very good pitching prospect who's currently holding his own (if not thriving) for Double-A Bowie as a...

Pirates claim RHP Angel Sanchez

CORRECTION:  The Pirates claimed RHP Angel Sanchez off waivers from the White Sox. This particular Sanchez hasn't been pitching all that long, apparently.  He was involved in the Ricky Nolasco...

Red Sox trade Jon Lester to Athletics

416

The Red Sox have traded Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to the Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes and a Comp Round B pick, everyone reports at once. If this is what the Red Sox wanted, it looks like the...

Cardinals trade for John Lackey

246

The Cardinals have acquired John Lackey, which is annoying. Lackey was a quiet presence on this market, but he's a very effective starter, posting 2.5 WAR already this year and 3.1 last year. Right...

Pirates reportedly ask about Emilio Bonifacio

29

The Pirates have asked the Cubs about Emilio Bonifacio, Joel Sherman reports. With Josh Harrison in the fold, I wouldn't think another 2B/3B/OF would be high on the Pirates' list of priorities, but...

An interview with Bristol manager Edgar Varela

I spoke to Edgar Varela, the manager of the Pirates' new rookie affiliate in Bristol, in his office Wednesday afternoon. Varela has been with the Pirates organization for the past several years,...

Thoughts on Bristol's loss to Princeton

As someone mentioned in the last thread about Bristol, this was really poor timing for a visit, all things considered -- it's hard to get anyone too excited about rookie ball when the Pirates are...

Giants 7, Pirates 5

I'm at the Bristol game right now, but here's a thread to discuss the Pirates' 7-5 loss to San Francisco, featuring The Weirdest Baserunning Play Of All Time. Charlie Morton allowed three runs in...

The Matt Morris Report: 7/30/14

So will there be big changes for the Pirates? I don't know, this is the minor league report. West Virginia was off, Jamestown was rained out and no report was available for the DSL Pirates.

Coming around on Jon Lester

213

Just a few quick thoughts on Jon Lester: Absent context, the only correct answer as to whether the Pirates should trade for Lester is, "It depends." Some of the ideas that have floated around (J...

Trade deadline thread

It's certain to be a day of empty speculation, unfounded rumors, conspiracy theories, loony trade ideas and Peter Gammons posts.  Discuss it all here!

Liriano strikes out 11 as Pirates win again

43

Francisco Liriano used a filthy changeup to dominate the Giants Tuesday, striking out 11 en route to a 3-1 Pirates win. It was a great win in more ways than one -- not only did Liriano look like...

Pirates reportedly a contender for Jon Lester

563

The Pirates are a "fast-emerging dark horse" in the bidding to acquire Jon Lester from the Red Sox, Jeff Passan and Tim Brown write. Josh Bell is apparently a central piece in the talks. I would...

David Todd and I discuss how the Pirates should approach the deadline, what the Pirates should be willing to give up for David Price, and what's going on with Ernesto Frieri. Find us on Twitter:...

Which teams frustrate the most frequently?

It's extremely frustrating to watch a player from a team you care about strike out with a man on third and one out in a high-leverage situation. Perhaps even more annoying is a fielding error in a...

Pirates rumors: A.J. Burnett talks 'all but dead'

Jayson Stark writes that the possibility of the Pirates trading for A.J. Burnett is "all but dead." [T]he Pirates have been unable to get assurances that Burnett won't pick up his player option...

Pirates looking for lefty reliever

The Pirates are looking for a lefty reliever, Jon Morosi tweets. That they're looking for a reliever, of course, makes sense. That it needs to be a lefty is a little surprising, since they have...

Vance Worley dominates in 100-pitch complete game

126

Vance Worley dominated the Giants, facing just two batters over the minimum en route to a 100-pitch complete-game shutout of the Giants Monday night. The Pirates did most of their damage in the...

Pirates reportedly interested in Marlon Byrd

Jon Morosi writes that, in addition to Antonio Bastardo, the Pirates are interested in Marlon Byrd. This is, perhaps, a little weird, unless the Pirates believe Starling Marte is going to be out...

Gerrit Cole made a rehab start and Tony Sanchez, Stetson Allie and Tito Polo provided the offense in wins. Jamestown was rained out.
