#Pirates Avoid Arbitration with Jordy Mercer for 1 yr/ $2.075 million

by Kipper | Jan 15, 2016 - 1:00 PM
The Pirates and Short Stop Jordy Mercer agreed on a 1 year contract today for $2.075. Considering the Pirates lack of options for the 2016 season, this was pretty inevitable.

#Pirates Sign Minor League Reliever Trey Haley

by Kipper | Jan 14, 2016 - 8:59 PM
The Pirates signed RHP minor leaguer Trey Haley to a 1 year contract. A power arm in the pen, he's never pitched at the MLB level but posted decent stats between AA-AAA in 2015 with a 2.45 ERA.

The knock on Haley is that he struggles with command. His walk rate per 9 is up in the 6's.

At 25-26 years old, he'll be given a chance to earn a spot on the roster in Spring Training

State By State Bucco History Part VI

by battlingbucs | Jan 14, 2016 - 1:30 PM
This is the continuation of my ATP (All Time Pirates) series but I have opted to change the name to make it a little more obvious what is covered in the topic. As a quick recap this is a running series of mine that digs into the Pirates past and takes a look at it from various different angles. This particular exercise is looking at it from the player's place of birth. Each US state, the District of Columbia and each foreign country will be investigated in the attempt to build a team. For more specifics check out the introductory post here.

In part VI I will be covering position players from what I call class A locations. There are only two of these locations, California and Pennsylvania and both of these states have over 100 players to pool from. The player pools are so large that I actually opted to form two teams for each state. The top team still gets it pick of 15 players leaving the remainder available for the B squad. The B squad teams will not be part of the final rankings as that is meant to just compare state to state.

California – B Team
Nyjer Morgan, CF
Al Martin, LF
Dick Stuart, 1B
Craig Wilson, RF
Steve Buechele, 3B
Jack Shephard, C
Dick Cole, 2B
Tim Foli, SS

Chris Stewart, C
Adam LaRoche, 1B
Jim Nealon, 1B
Tommy Sheehan, 3B
Sam Khalifa, SS
Gene Clines, OF
R.J. Reynolds, OF

Notes: Morgan doesn’t have much power but he has some solid OBP skills and is a good base runner so he should slot in well at the top of the lineup. Martin is another player like Morgan in that he is a good OBP guy that can run the bases well but unlike Morgan he has some pop in his bat though of course his defense is very poor especially compared to Morgan. Stuart and Wilson provide the middle of the order with some serious pop and its telling that these guys couldn’t crack the “A” team. Buechele is another solid bat that gives the lineup some depth. Spots 6 through 8 are occupied by weaker hitters who generate... [Read More]
