- There won't be a public practice tomorrow at PNC Park as in past seasons. The Bucs need the open date to meet the mandated three scheduled off days in the spring.
- The Pirate-Phils game scheduled for this afternoon was cancelled because of rain. No last look for the bubble pitchers, tho it gives NH time to work the phones.
- Here is the Altoona Curve roster for 2014 - the club looks awfully strong on the mound.
- Greg Eckert of Paste Magazine picks PNC Park #1 in craft beers. And he should know - gotta be a long-time fan since he spells the city "Pittsburg."
- Ex-Bucs: Daniel McCutchen made the Rangers roster, and Evan Meek won a job with the Orioles.
