The Matt Morris Report: 8/1/14

-- Indianapolis lost to Buffalo, 4-2.  Brandon Cumpton threw six and two-thirds innings, allowing three runs on six hits and no walks, with three strikeouts.  Cumpton left with two outs in the 7th and two on base, and Vin Mazzaro allowed...

Gamethread: Edinson Volquez takes on Diamondbacks

Here's an early gamethread. Edinson Volquez takes on Vidal Nuno and the Diamondbacks at 9:40.

Rays turned down 'greater' offer from Pirates for David Price

Peter Gammons reports (or apparently reports -- this is a secondhand account of something he said on MLB Network) that the Rays turned down a David Price offer from the Pirates that was better than the one they got from the Tigers. Most p...

Pirates lose 7-4 to Diamondbacks

In addition to not making any trades, the Pirates also didn't win any games Thursday, falling to the Diamondbacks, 7-4. The Bucs grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second when Neil Walker singled, Ike Davis walked, and Russell Martin brought both o...

The Matt Morris Report: 7/31/14

The farm system saw several offensive outbursts, including a two-HR game by Jose Osuna. -- Indianapolis beat Buffalo, 6-4.  Casey Sadler gave up a two-run HR in the 1st, but recovered to allow just one more run in seven total innings.  ...

Thoughts on the Pirates and the trade deadline

A few thoughts on the Pirates' performance at the trade deadline today: -P- It appears the Red Sox and Rays wanted big-leaguers in return for Jon Lester and David Price, and seen from that perspective, it's clear why the Pirates didn't get...

Tigers acquire David Price

The Tigers have acquired David Price. Tampa will apparently get big-league players back in return, which sort of makes sense, in that the Tigers' minor league system isn't the best. I...

Orioles acquire Andrew Miller

The Orioles have acquired Andrew Miller for pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez, a very good pitching prospect who's currently holding his own (if not thriving) for Double-A Bowie as a 21-year-old, was a lot to give up, but Miller was prob...

Pirates trade rumors: Bucs discussing David Price trade

This morning, at least, the Pirates discussed a David Price trade with the Rays, Ken Rosenthal writes. Price represented the most valuable starting pitcher on the market even when Jon Lester was still on it. Obviously, it would take a ton t...

Pirates claim RHP Angel Sanchez

CORRECTION:  The Pirates claimed RHP Angel Sanchez off waivers from the White Sox.

Cardinals trade for John Lackey

The Cardinals have acquired John Lackey, which is annoying. Lackey was a quiet presence on this market, but he's a very effective starter, posting 2.5 WAR already this year and 3.1 last year. Right now, the Cardinals appear to be the team s...

Pirates trade rumors: Bucs ask about Emilio Bonifacio

The Pirates have asked the Cubs about Emilio Bonifacio, Joel Sherman reports. With Josh Harrison in the fold, I wouldn't think another 2B/3B/OF would be high on the Pirates' list of priorities, but so much depends on a bunch of moving parts...

Red Sox trade Jon Lester to Athletics

The Red Sox have traded Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to the Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes and a Comp Round B pick, everyone reports at once. If this is what the Red Sox wanted, it looks like the Pirates ...

Thoughts on Bristol's loss to Princeton

As someone mentioned in the last thread about Bristol, this was really poor timing for a visit, all things considered -- it's hard to get anyone too excited about rookie ball when the Pirates are trying to acquire Jon Lester. I went to Bris...

The Matt Morris Report: 7/30/14

So will there be big changes for the Pirates? I don't know, this is the minor league report. West Virginia was off, Jamestown was rained out and no report was available for the DSL Pirates. -- Indianapolis couldn't hold an early 4-0 lead...

Giants 7, Pirates 5

I'm at the Bristol game right now, but here's a thread to discuss the Pirates' 7-5 loss to San Francisco, featuring The Weirdest Baserunning Play Of All Time.

An interview with Bristol manager Edgar Varela

I spoke to Edgar Varela, the manager of the Pirates' new rookie affiliate in Bristol, in his office Wednesday afternoon. Varela has been with the Pirates organization for the past several years, but this is his first year as a manager. He a...

Pirates trade deadline: Coming around on Jon Lester

Just a few quick thoughts on Jon Lester: Absent context, the only correct answer as to whether the Pirates should trade for Lester is, "It depends." Some of the ideas that have floated around (Josh Bell and Tyler Glasnow;

Gamethread: Charlie Morton starts as Pirates go for sweep

The Pirates' lineup is again Alvarez-free for today's 3:45pm game: Josh Harrison 3B Gregory Polanco RF Andrew McCutchen CF Neil Walker 2B Ike Davis 1B Travis Snider LF Jordy Mercer SS Chris Stewart C Charlie Morton P

Trade deadline thread

It's certain to be a day of empty speculation, unfounded rumors, conspiracy theories, loony trade ideas and Peter Gammons posts.  Discuss it all here!

Francisco Liriano strikes out 11 as Pirates move into playoff position

Francisco Liriano used a filthy changeup to dominate the Giants Tuesday, striking out 11 en route to a 3-1 Pirates win. It was a great win in more ways than one -- not only did Liriano look like his 2013 self, but the Giants (obviously), B...
