Pedro Alvarez was DFAd by Baltimore today.

Hitting .180.

I can see it now:  Our friend Dogknot lobbying for the Bucs to claim him and insert him in the lineup!   Grin Grin Grin Grin

Hey Dog, couldn't help myself.  To bad the Pedro has gone down hill this much since he broke in with the Bucs.

Pedro was never a good hitter. He was always a poor hitter with power. Even in his 36-HR season, he batted .233 and whiffed 186 times. But his fielding became so bad the Pirates didn't want to put him on the field. Remember the WC game when S-Rod started at 1B and Pedro didn't enter until his turn at bat came? He played himself out of the NL but even most AL teams no longer carry a pure DH if he can't play anywhere in the field. The Orioles gave him a chance but they always have a lot of HR hitters so they didn't have to put up with Pedro's inability to play the field and his weak batting other than the HRs. They've got too many of those guys already. Maybe Japan is the answer for Pedro.

Enny Romero DFA'd. They tried it before but he said he was injured. So they waited til he's healthy and DFA'd him again. Maybe it'll stick this time.

Enny picked up by the Royals (they had selection before Blue Jays)

Wow, I knew Morton was having a good season, but I don't follow the AL all that closely. This is crazy:

He's 11-2 with a 2.96 ERA and 146 strikeouts in 19 starts this year.

Possum might remember Jack Merson. He set a MLB record with 10 RBIs in his first 5 games as a September call up in 1951. He played 2B in 1952. He was from Elkridge, Md, just a few minutes from me and I've met his granddaughter several times at an Elkridge bar watching Steeler games (she's a fan). I just learned today that he's buried at the same Elkridge cemetery as my father and was surprised to see his grave is less than 100 yards from my father's. So today I took a regulation Pirate cap and placed it at Merson's grave with a long nail thru it and into the ground to keep the wind from blowing it away. Merson was mentioned in a Pirate broadcast early this season when Polanco got off to a quick start with 13 RBIs in his first 8 games. But I don't think anyone has broken (a couple have tied) Merson's record for 10 RBIs in the first 5 games of his career.

Great for Cutch.  Would love to see him get a real chance to get a ring.
