Pirates of the Allegheny: Brock Holt!




Starting this a little early as I'm off to San Diego to watch the series. Pirates Prospects is stating that Kyle McPherson and Justin Wilson may be added to the team today and Correia could start.

Game time is 10:00 here in the east. I won't make it past the third inning.

Maybe I won't watch it then because that's 3:00am...

Loving this late night game. Always love any time the Pens or Bucs are on the West Coast.

I normally hate it, but I have literally slept for 16 of the last 25 hours. I think I'm ready.

I like the late game, really. My wife loves watching TV Monday's until 10 PM. Gives her a chance to watch what she wants until the Pirates come on

Pittsburgh Pirates ‏@Pirates
Kyle McPherson and Justin Wilson have been recalled from AAA. Juan Cruz has been DFA'd and Jordy Mercer placed on paternity leave list.

The #Pirates have announced that Kevin Correia will start tonight's game in San Diego.

Correia won a good deal of respect back for that...and he's playing his previous employer tonight as well. I like a motivated pitcher.

Shocking Cruz got DFA'd....he's been bad since coming back, but he's one of few true veterans in that bullpen. McPherson will probably only play tonight before being swapped for Qualls, but of Wilson impresses he may well stick.

Cruz doesn't surprise me. I want to see what Wilson and McPherson can do.

Props to Correia. To come out and want control of today's fate is a lot to ask for. He's got balls; let's see how large.

They just released a new beer today...the Enjoy By 9.21.12 IPA...it may be the best IPA I've ever had.

Pulling myself away after two...I still have 35 miles to drive

Sounds awesome Big. Enjoy yourself.

Really surprised to hear about Cruz but at the same time he has mostly sucked lately. Let's see what these kids can do hopefully.

Walker is back in the lineup. Snider is also playing (there were some doubts about his health yesterday it seemed).

Nice, didn't expect either of those.

In other news, working for the man is a *****. I really want to watch this game, see Petco and see how we respond to yesterday, but I really don't see myself staying awake past the 3rd or 4th. Sucks.

Pretty empty stadium tonight...lots of Pirates fans.

Nice stadium...but it definitely can't hold a candle to PNC. The weather couldn't possibly be more perfect...
