- Whenever they finally face Baltimore, the Pirates will become the final MLB team to play an out-of-division game.
- Justin Millar of The Daily Dish examines the current OF market, and thinks Jose Tabata would be an appealing trade piece.
- Tyler Drenon of TDD posts that competition is coming after Billy Hamilton for the ROY - and Greg Polanco is in that small pack.
- Holy Moly - Philadelphia is thinking of naming a street after Roberto Clemente!
- Ex-Bucs: LHP Kris Johnson is headed back to the big leagues. The 29-year-old was chosen as the Minnesota Twins' 26th man for Thursday's DH'er against the LA Dodgers. Johnson was flipped for Duke Welker after the Bucs had sent Duke to the Twins in the Justin Morneau trade. And in a strange deal, Steve Pearce was waived by the Orioles, and then re-signed to the MLB roster after Chris Davis went on the DL.
