Blog Buzz

The Pirates are coming to town, which means chatting with some of the most passionate bloggers in the sport. Let's see what they're up to anyway…

Pat at WHYGAS? looks at the drafting habits of the Pirates through recent years. By 2003, I was laughing so loud that I woke up the cat.

Bucco Blog previews the series and talks about the reasoning behind the Vegas odds. Apparently the Pirates are underdogs going into tonight's game because, among other reasons, they're 1-5 in their last six Friday games. Who knew the day of the week was so essential? What's their record for the last six games on the sixth of the month? Or the sixth of April?

At Bucs Dugout, they must be feeling pretty good about sitting atop the division, because they're taking some time out of their busy schedules to create an All-Overpaid Team and compare it to the overpaid team that appears on ESPN's Page 2. The Page 2 bit does have a rep from the Reds, but I probably didn't need to tell you that. Furthermore, they include Jason LaRue in a group of players that they say the Royals are overpaying, but I think they forget that it's actually the Reds who are paying him.

    Josh Hamilton and his wife Katie both went to the hospital last night and got IV fluids for their flu-like symptoms.

    I thought you’d want to know. 😉

    Thanks for the tip. Normally this is where I’d derisive ask whether they later climbed into the iron lung, but I’d be embarrassed if I found out that those flu-like symptoms really had made them need medical intervention.
