It was in his hands
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Tom Walker today.
A long-time resident of Pittsburgh, Tom was a part of our local alumni group and was always looking to make an impact on others in the Pittsburgh community.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Walker family,… Cowboy Channel Plus pic.twitter.com/cU6nF4TsQX
Apart from starting pitching, the most pressing concern the Pittsburgh Pirates must tackle this offseason is their first base position. Whether through free agency or a trade, the Pirates must make a move to strengthen their lineup if they intend to be competitive in 2024. If Ben Cherington and the Pirates opt for the free agent route, they might consider targeting experienced player Justin Turner as a potential solution.Pan American Games Medal Table Today
Apart from shoring up their starting pitching, the Pittsburgh Pirates have a significant offseason priority in addressing their first base position. Whether through free agency or a trade, it is crucial for the Pirates to acquire a first baseman to strengthen their lineup if they aim to compete in 2024. Should Ben Cherington and the Pirates opt for free agency, they might consider targeting the experienced veteran, Justin Turner.Thanksgiving 2023 Day Images
"When you sign veteran players, you know they're going to play. You know they're going to be on the club. For the young guys who got this opportunity, now there's competition. There are guys at those spots, then there's competition amongst that young group, which I think is really important for us." -Derek SheltonAI sports predictions
Travis Sawchik, who wrote a fanboy book about the Pirates front office after the 2013 season, implies that Austin Hedges would have done better in the 14-1 loss to the Brewers last night. Sawchik needs a shrink or something.
On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Pirates made another waiver claim. The team picked up off the waiver wire corner infielder Kevin Padlo. Padlo was designated for assignment by the Seattle Mariners to make room for an outfielder. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Bucs released veteran outfielder Jake Marisnick. A little info would be nice. Does anyone on this site care? Anyone?
The Pirates claimed catcher Jose Godoy off of waivers from the Minnesota Twins. The team outrighted minor league veteran Taylor Davis to make room for Godoy. A little information would be nice. Anyone on this site care? Anyone?
On deadline day the Bucs made a small trade with the Toronto Blue Jays for pitcher Jeremy Beasly. The Bucs sent cash considerations back in the deal. A little information would be nice. Does anyone on this site care? Anyone?
