On a busy day for Pittsburgh Pirates history, we have three trades and six former players born on this date. John Fredland covers a well-pitched game by Jon Lieber from 15 years ago, in his Jolly Roger Rewind. Before we start with all that, we have one current Pirates player celebrating a birthday and he […]
I’ve talked a few times the last few days about how the July 31st trade deadline doesn’t represent the final opportunity to add talent for the 2011 season. I focused on the waiver trading period the other day, but what about waivers themselves? That’s a way that the Pirates have plugged holes on their team […]
Jennifer Langosch reports that the Pittsburgh Pirates and relief pitcher Chan Ho Park have mutual interest in Park returning to the Pirates in 2011. Langosch mentions that it’s unlikely that the Pirates would add Park on a major league deal, but that a minor league deal would be more likely. Park struggled with the Yankees […]

The team has spent a couple years now accumulating players, very few of whom have established themselves as solid major leaguers. Many of the […]
Over the past couple weeks, the Pirates unloaded four veteran relievers who had helped contribute to a solid bullpen in 2010. Yesterday, in an attempt to solidify the disrupted pen, the Bucs claimed Chris Resop and Chan Ho Park off waivers. The Resop addition was applauded, but critics have scoffed at the decision to bring in Park. I have spent parts of the morning wondering why.
