Pirates acquire Byrd and Buck (8/28 News and Notes)

and Wedge is going to get fired

Otto Greule Jr
  • Yesterday, the Pirates traded Dilson Herrera and a PTBNL for John Buck and Marlon Byrd. Byrd will help them in the outfield, where they have had a black hole in right (665 OPS, by far worst in the NL).

    Shockingly, the Indians are at 811. What? Even Drew Stubbs would probably be shocked by this.

    The Raburn Effect, I guess.
  • Eric Wedge is a top firing candidate, according to Mr. Heyman.
  • For some stupid reason, Chris Davis wants Miguel Cabrera to win another triple crown this year.
  • Russ Canzler was DFA'd again.
  • Jeremy Hellickson was sent to A-ball.
  • Meanwhile, the Rays blew a 5-1 lead to the Angels.
  • Jason Kubel was also DFA'd. Interesting.
