I don't think there's a worse team in the big leagues than the White Sox. Truly awful.

May 16 and the Buccos are in a first place tie!

A bit surprised they bringing up Meadows now. He hasn't been lighting up AAA this year, and it's uncharacteristic handling of a major prospect. They have typically held off starting a player's clock until they're pretty much beating down the door via performance.

After losing 3 of 4 to the Padres, sadly it is.

If they win more than they lose (which they may not) they beat my expectations for this season. Musgrove will be a welcome addition if he can eat up 6-7 innings.

The rotation isn't great at the moment. Taillon is underperforming as the #1, Nova hasn't been good, and Kuhl has been inconsistent. Musgrove looked pretty good in his debut but I doubt we'll see that kind of performance regularly from him - but I obviously wouldn't mind being wrong.

Nova might go on the DL with a finger injury next week. That opens the door for Kingham to get a couple more starts. I think Nova has been the worst of the bunch, so it's a fortuitous injury if it does take him out.

Polanco is playing himself into the bench right now. Meadows had a great first week and as long as he's playing well I don't see a reason to keep him out of the lineup.

Someone needs to slow down those Brewers.

I have no idea why Hurdle still has a job. His lineups are terrible day in and day out and he consistently makes some of the worst in-game moves I've ever seen.

Nice to see the Pirates win a couple of games vs. the Reds.

Still need Hurdle to grow a brain. I'm sure tomorrow they'll lose a game they really need to win because he'll play the "Sunday lineup".

I question why he removed Brault in the ninth. The guy is a starter I hope he could pitch 3 innings. Its not like the bullpen needs work. Also I've about had it with Martes lack of hustle on ground balls. If you are making big money to bat 4 times a day at the very least give it your best every at bat. I wouldn't mind seeing the Bucs dump Marte and Polanco, both are underachievers. They have Meadows and Dickerson just need to find a CF.

They both play lazy. It's annoying, but at least Marte has enough raw talent to make up for it most of the time. Polanco just sucks.

They really need to get rid of Sean Rodriguez. He's god awful and Hurdle uses him way, way too much. There's really no need for him when they have some talent in AAA, like Kevin Newman, Adam Frazier, and Jose Osuna. Osuna is crushing the ball down there, hitting nearly .350 on the season.

Another addition in the future could be Jung-ho Kang. He was activated off the restricted list a couple days ago and has been playing in AAA for about a week. He's not hitting well (2 for 17) but he's not striking out either, so hopefully that comes soon. He's been playing both 3B and SS, which could open the door for a Jordy Mercer trade, who will be a FA after this season.

Irwin20, Brault should have pitched the 9th. You are right.

Only Marte sitting today. Cervelli's back in. Really need this sweep.

Great to see Williams have a good outing. He'd been horrible for about a month.

How does Hurlde still have a job? Sean Rodriguez might be the worst player in the NL and he's started him three games in a row now.

It would be a very Pirates thing to do to go on a run right before the ASB

Hopefully the Pirates can get at least 2 of 3 this weekend going into the All-Star break. Go Buccos.

Win 4 from Brewers so far. I understand the baseball season can be about streaks they are on a nice one right now. The best they are looking at is probably 3rd place in the division. That would be better than my expectations for this season. It will be interesting to see how they handle the trade deadline.

Great weekend from the Pirates. And have some breathing room over the Reds.

They are actually in the WC race at the moment. It will be interesting to see if they trade (away or to make a run?) I think they will basically stand pat.

If they're going to make a real run at the wild card, Josh Bell needs to start hitting bombs. He's hit 1 HR since June 1 and just 5 for the whole season. That's absurd for a guy who his 26 in his rookie season.

I agree. They are getting a lot from Dickerson, Polanco and Marte right now (all 3 homered today) it would be nice if Bell caught fire.
