Bido’s had some stark ups and downs this year, but he’s on a good run lately. In his last six games, he’s allowed 19 hits and 12 walks in 31 innings, with 32 strikeouts and an ERA of 1.74. If he could just get himself onto waivers somehow, he’d have a chance to see Pittsburgh next year.
Endy Rodriguez (DH) and Matt Gorski (RF) are in the lineup for Indy.

Osvaldo Bido struck out ten over five and two-thirds innings as Indianapolis (72-70) beat St. Paul, 7-3. Bido allowed just two hits and an unearned run. He did walk four, and he needed 92 pitches. Endy Rodriguez and Matt Gorski made their AAA debuts. Rodriguez just continued doing what he does, picking up two hits, including a double, and also a sac fly. Gorski had a single in two at-bats and also a steal. Unfortunately, he left with a leg injury after attempting a sliding catch in right. The play ended up as a two-run, inside-the-park home run. Gorski was able to limp off the field, but it didn’t look terribly good. The big day on offense belonged to Jose Godoy, who came up a triple short of a cycle. The home run was his sixth in AAA. Brendt Citta drove in three. Indy did a lot of running; apart from Gorski, Hoy Park stole two bases and Ji-Hwan Bae swiped his 30th. John O’Reilly got charged with the two runs on the Gorski play. Junior Fernandez and Nick Mears each worked a scoreless inning.
Having followed the Pirates fanatically since 1965, Wilbur Miller is one of the fast-dwindling number of fans who’ve actually seen good Pirate teams. He’s even seen Hall-of-Fame Pirates who didn’t get traded mid-career, if you can imagine such a thing. His first in-person game was a 5-4, 11-inning win at Forbes Field over Milwaukee (no, not that one). He’s been writing about the Pirates at various locations online for over 20 years. It has its frustrations, but it’s certainly more cathartic than writing legal stuff. Wilbur is retired and now lives in Bradenton with his wife and three temperamental cats.
Endy doesn’t quit!
Anyone know why Gorski came out?
hurt his leg apparently
Tried to make a sliding catch and did something to his left leg. Hammy maybe? Took a while before he could get on his feet, although he carefully walked off.
Bido with 10 Ks!
Another guy playing his way onto the 40 man this off season.
Not so sure he makes it, but he will for somebody. Finishing his age 26 season, but only 5 years in professional baseball and getting better as the season progresses. The last 2 months he has pitched at AAA as well as anyone in the system.
Endy with a single in his first AAA AB.
Wait, only a single???
I know this is an extreme putting the cart before the horse comment, but iirc i read the other day that endy’s signing bonus was 10k. If we are lucky enough that he comes up and performs, he could be very extendable i would think
As would Rodolfo Castro. I think he signed for a couple hundred thou and has not let the Pirates down. Loved the aggressiveness of Anthopoulas in Atlanta extending the Rookie OF before the first season even ended! No hesitation. He obviously knows where he stands with the Owner.
Double in his second at bat, seems like he already mastered AAA.
Bido been on a tear lately
where do you find this stuff?
