    Pirates Game Thread: 8/13 - 8/20

    I didn't read it but apparently there is a long odd story on SI.com that talks about how Locke was accused of fixing games back in 2012. At the end of the article they mention MLB investigated and cleared him of any wrong doing.

    Par for the course here but still no Neil Walker. If it wasn't for that pinch hit appearance I would have to believe he'd be on the DL right now but alas we are stuck with a short bench. The good news of course is that these next two games take place under AL rules and playing with a short bench is not such a big issue there. The bad news of course is that we are playing under AL rules. Regardless Pedro returns to the lineup though he won't be on the field.

    Harrison 5
    Polanco 9
    Martin 2
    Davis 3
    Marte 8
    Alvarez 0
    Mercer 6
    Snider 7
    Nix 4

    Worley is the SP tonight.

    Oh I somehow missed this we have claimed Ramon Cabrera from the Tigers. The Tigers waived him to make room for Buck Farmer (their SP tonight). As some of you will no doubt recall Cabrera was once a Pirates and even on the 40 man roster for a few days before being sent to the Tigers in exchange for Andrew Oliver.

    Also I believe Barmes is starting a rehab assignment in AA tonight. It will be nice to get him back.

    Snider was just on MLB network, which is pretty much the only sports channel I watch. It was a fun interview, talked about how he got his nickname, his football days, his days as a blue jay and how he is enjoying Pittsburgh.

    I outright refuse to watch anything ESPN unless a live game is on. If you guys don't watch MLB network, def peep it. It's usually whats running on my tv most of the time.

    Why was Worley still pitching? He was clearly done last inning. Now need a comeback win.

    Early game today and we are still playing under AL rules Still no Walker and the Pirates are going with the closest thing they can to a Sunday lineup which means Stewart and Martinez are starting.

    Polanco 9
    Snider 7
    Harrison 5
    Davis 3
    Marte 8
    Alvarez 0
    Mercer 6
    Stewart 2
    Martinez 4

    Liriano is doing the pitching.

    Frustrating run there for the Tigers there that Ball 4 certainly appeared to be a strike. Its only a 2 run deficit but it looks like its going to take a small miracle to win this one.

    Another loss but in some weird news the Pirates have claimed John Axford off of Indians and he was given to us. Seriously they just you take him and the 1.1 million he is still owed. Now Axford isn't that good but hey its another arm to throw on to the pile and he did use to be an effective reliever.

    Pimentel has been removed from the roster to make room for Axford. No word if its a release or a DL stint. If its the former I don't like this move at all but if its the later its basically a why not kind of thing.
