    If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

  2. Pirates send top prospect Gregory Polanco to the minors

    Mar 14, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Gregory Polanco Pirates

    Gregory Polanco was always a long shot to make the Pirates out of spring training and today the team officially ruled him out, optioning the 22-year-old top prospect to the minors among the latest batch of roster cuts. Polanco was impressive in camp, but has just 70 games of experience above Single-A and wasn’t especially…

  3. Sweet potatoes 1, Travis Snider 0

    Feb 18, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v San Diego Padres

    Hey man, it happens: Travis Snider‘s toe is doing well, but another minor scrape will keep him from throwing for a day or two. Snider cut a finger on his left hand while chopping a sweet potato and has a bandage on the tip of the finger. There are way worse things with which to injure…

    Andrew Bailey

    We’ll be writing up the non-tenders as they come in prior to Monday’s midnight deadline. These players immediately become free agents. AMERICAN LEAGUE Angels – RHP Juan Gutierrez, RHP Tommy Hanson, INF Chris Nelson, RHP Jerome Williams All of these were expected. Hanson and Williams would have cost upwards of $4 million apiece. Williams is…

  5. Reds trounce Pirates to bring NL Wild Card back into a deadlock

    Sep 22, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Reds brought the lumber today against Pirates starter Jeff Locke. Locke, an All-Star, entered today’s start with a 5.43 ERA since the break. It didn’t improve. The Reds tagged Locke for five runs in the top of the first. After the Reds loaded the bases with one out, Jay Bruce laced a bases-clearing double…

  6. Reds come back in ninth, beat Pirates in 10

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Jordy Mercer

    A Jordy Mercer error on a routine grounder to shortstop opened the door for the Reds to score three runs in the ninth, and Joey Votto hit a go-ahead homer in the 10th as Cincinnati won in Pittsburgh 6-5 on Friday. The result leaves the two teams with identical 88-66 records behind the soon-to-be 90-64…

    Jon Lester

    It’s cool and crisp here in America’s Heartland and there were some games last night that felt like the playoffs. Can we please just skip September and move straight on into October? Would anyone object to this? Red Sox 2, Tigers 1: An ALCS preview? Jon Lester outduels Max Scherzer in a tight game with…

  8. Pirates “studying deals” for Alex Rios, Nate Schierholtz

    Jul 14, 2013, 1:41 PM EDT

    pirates logo

    Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune has the scoop: Looking to upgrade in right field, the Pirates are studying deals for Nate Schierholtz and Alex Rios. It is possible that they’ll make a move sooner rather than later, as they are tied for the NL Central lead while last in OPS at the position (slash line…

  9. Pirates activate Jose Tabata from the disabled list

    Jul 3, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    Jose Tabata Getty

    Jose Tabata is back from the disabled list after missing the past six weeks with an oblique injury. To make room for him on the roster the Pirates demoted yesterday’s spot starter, Brandon Cumpton, to Triple-A. Andrew McCutchen and Starling Marte obviously aren’t going anywhere in the Pirates’ outfield, so any playing time Tabata receives…

  10. Russell Martin is starting in right field for the Pirates

    Jun 4, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Russell Martin

    Not to be outdone by the Yankees using career-long first baseman Lyle Overbay in right field, the Pirates have catcher Russell Martin in right field tonight against the Braves. In fairness Martin isn’t a typical catcher in that he’s a good athlete with some speed who’s played 18 games at third base in the majors.…

  11. Dusty Baker’s bullpen mismanagement costs the Reds another win

    Jun 2, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    aroldis chapman getty

    Dusty Baker is one of many managers across baseball who utilizes his bullpen according to the save rule, which means that the closer doesn’t enter the game until his team has a lead between one and three runs in the ninth inning. In this afternoon’s game against the Pirates, the Reds entered the bottom of…

  12. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Wilin Rosario

    Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: One of four games to require ten frames last night. This from the AP gamer: Reliever Matt Reynolds tried to outthink his former teammate, guess what pitch Wilin Rosario would be looking for and throw the opposite. Only, Rosario knew Reynolds was trying to get inside his head, so … Long story short, Rosario spent the last…

  13. Andrew McCutchen scratched from Pirates’ starting lineup

    Tom Singer of MLB.com reports that the Pirates have scratched center fielder Andrew McCutchen from their starting lineup for Sunday’s series finale against the Astros because of soreness in his right knee. Starling Marte will slide over to center, Travis Snider will play left field and Garrett Jones will get the start in right. Gaby…

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers 10, Tigers 4: So much for pitching porn. Darvish wasn’t exactly sharp early but he ultimately settled down. Meanwhile, who put the benzedrine in Mr. Verlander’s Ovaltine? He was a hot mess. And I do mean hot. He was lighting up the radar gun in the early innings but was overthrowing and seemed to…

  15. John Gibbons still believes in Travis Snider

    Mar 16, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v San Diego Padres

    Travis Snider, rated as the #6 overall prospect entering the 2009 season, failed to live up to lofty expectations with the Blue Jays. They cut their losses, trading him to the Pittsburgh Pirates last July for reliever Brad Lincoln. Jays manager John Gibbons, though, is still a believer. Via Rob Biertempfel: “There’s no question the…

  16. Homer Bailey throws a no-hitter against the Pirates

    Sep 28, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    Homer Bailey AP

    UPDATE: He did it! Homer Bailey has done it. He threw a no-hitter tonight against the Pirates as part of a 1-0 win. Bailey struck out pinch-hitter Brock Holt swinging to begin the ninth before getting pinch-hitter Michael McKenry to pop out to left field for the second out. He then Alex Presley to pop…

    New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey reacts to the crowd after getting his 20th win of the season after the Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in their MLB National League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 6, Pirates 5: R.A. Dickey wins his 20th, striking out 13 in the process. I don’t care if wins aren’t supposed to matter. It’s cool. He’s old and he struggled for years and he has no freaking ligament in his elbow and he seems like a pretty cool guy and all of that and…

  18. Catch of the year? Travis Snider robbed Mike Baxter

    Sep 27, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    robbery

    Sometimes when an outfielder makes a great catch that’s described as “robbing a homer” it’s really more like robbing a double off the top of the wall. This is not one of those times, as Pirates right fielder Travis Snider reached a good three feet beyond the outfield wall to take a sure homer away…

  19. Pirates send Alex Presley back to Triple-A again

    Aug 8, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Houston Astros v Pittsburgh Pirates

    For the second time this season the Pirates have demoted their Opening Day left fielder and leadoff hitter, Alex Presley, to the minors. This time the demotion back to Triple-A comes because Presley’s playing time vanished when the Pirates called up top prospect Starling Marte to play left field and traded for Travis Snider to…

  20. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright.

  22. Mariners acquire Eric Thames from Blue Jays

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:19 AM EDT

    Eric Thames

    The Jays’ big position battle this spring was Eric Thames versus Travis Snider for left field. Thames was handed the job, but eventually both ended up back in the minors. Now both are out of the organization entirely, having been traded within a half hour of each other tonight. Thames was sent to Seattle for…

    Travis Snider Reuters

    Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports the Pirates have acquired outfielder Travis Snider from the Blue Jays for right-hander Brad Lincoln. Both were first-round picks in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, as Snider was picked 14th overall while Lincoln was picked fourth.

  24. Blue Jays aren’t getting many calls about Travis Snider

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays Travis Snider hits a home run against the Oakland Athletics in the fourth inning of their American League MLB baseball game in Toronto

    Travis Snider was the 14th overall pick in the 2006 draft and ranked among Baseball America‘s top 20 prospects in both 2008 and 2009, but the Blue Jays sent him to Triple-A yesterday despite being a 24-year-old with 877 plate appearances in the majors. And it turns out other teams feel similarly about Snider, as…

  25. Blue Jays pick Eric Thames in left field, send down Travis Snider

    Mar 25, 2012, 8:25 PM EDT

    Blue Jays outfielder Eric Thames warms up in left field during an inter-squad game at their MLB American League spring training facility in Dunedin

    Travis Snider performed well enough to win the Blue Jays’ starting job in left field this spring. Unfortunately for him, Eric Thames played well enough to hold on to it. Snider was sent packing Sunday despite his four homers and 16 RBI in 17 games this spring. He was hitting .271/.340/.625, though he did strike…
