The “Notable Performances” are weird choices when you look at the box scores. But anyways….is Lopez a real prospect? Heck of a year.


Nunez not playing today….is like the Pirates run a get acclimated with the org program for any player joining the org.


I think I read he had a minor injury at the time of the trade and we wouldn’t see him for a couple weeks


Thanks, didn’t read that!


Lopez and Rodriguez are the only minor leaguers worth watching (for me since I don’t really care that much about prospects until they get to Hi A,AA!). Shame that the home games are not televised.


Is Endy hurt?


getting prepped for that promotion

Wilbur Miller

Not on IL.
