Reports are surfacing that while the Pirates and Brewers are currently playing a game, the Pirates have traded first baseman Adam LaRoche to the Boston Red Sox for minor league pitcher Hunter Strickland and shortstop Argenis Diaz. I’ve seen it reported a few places, but of course the league hasn’t confirmed it yet....

The bench clearing “brawl” that happened late in this week's game when Brewers pitcher Chris Smith beaned Pirates reliever Jeff Karstens just doesn't make any sense to me.Karstens wasn’t happy about this and took a step or two in the direction of the mound, at which time Jason Kendall pushed/escorted him towards first base. The Pirates objected to that treatment of Karstens and both benches ...

Awesome - the Brewers are losing 7-2 to the Pittsburgh team that we've beaten 17 times in a row and we drill Carstens, who drilled Braun earlier in the year, and the benches and bullpens clear and crazy Jason Kendall looks like he's going to kill a biatch. New guy Felipe Lopez on base five times with four solid base hits. I like him more than Rickie already. Of course, the two outs on the bases we...

This game had it all -Bill Hall started in left and subsequently left with a hamstring cramp in the second inningChris Duffy replaced Hall in left field and made a beautiful catch while running into the wallMike Cameron also ran into the wall, though he didn't make the catch. For awhile it looked like we'd lose outfielders in consecutive innings and be subjected to a Duffy, Nelson, Hart outfield!R...

Bilgemunky broadcasts on Internet “arrrr”-waves

"Avast, you scalawags. Bilgemunky Radio is preparing to air…" A robotic female voice with a British accent repeated this a few times shortly before 8 p.m. on a recent Monday night. Meanwhile, Gerard Heidgerken was cueing up to broadcast his weekly Internet pirate radio show. In this case the term "pirate" doesn't refer to a broadcast that taps FCC-sanctioned airwaves, but rather to literal, swashbuckling pirates. Bilgemunky Radio features songs about pirates from mainstream bands and a surprising number of songs from...

From the Playoff Pulse column, some crazy numbers:• Prince Fielder is a career 1-for-18 against Paul Maholm, who will start for Pittsburgh against CC Sabathia on Wednesday night. But Milwaukee's right-handed hitters absolutely clobber Maholm: Mike Cameron is 10-for-15 with a 1.267 slugging percentage against Maholm, while Bill Hall sports a career average of .609 (14-for-23) against the Pirates'...

Damn it's fun to be a fan this week!Also, a poster over at Brewerfan.net had this to say:           Bold prediction: we will look back on this the same way we look back on Ned Yost's home run against Boston in 1982.Except, you know, Prince doesn't suck at baseball and we won't hate him for being a crappy manager 26 years from now.            Hilarious!!Go watch the walk-off grea...

The Cubs still haven't clinched home-field advantage, so they'll actually be playing their full squad for these upcoming 4 games at Shea.We're just 1 1/2 games back. Three games against Pitt at home to start off should do us well. Tonight's pitcher, Karstens, is just 2-6 and he's facing robot Dave Bush (or, the guy who took over Dave Bush's body and is far out-punting the coverage). Karsten's has ...
