Tough night for Glasnow. 2/3 of inning 7 runs 5 hits and 2 walks. So it is going to be a lot longer until we determine which team did the best in this trade. I hope the trade works out well for both teams.

A few starts ago he flirted with the same disastrous 1st inning but was bailed out when the Red Sox attempted their 3rd and 4th SBs of the 1st inning and a pick off resulted in a DP.  He ended up with an impressive 6.2 IP but was on the verge of being lifted in the 1st. Today he wasn't so lucky. Obviously, Glasnow still has significant issues. He's flashed his potential more with TB than he ever did as a Pirate but the problems are still there.

Tyler has given up 18 earned runs in last 32 innings.

Still hoping he can put things together.  He needs to forget this start.

Reese McGuire is making his major league debut tonight for the Jays. He hit .233 in AAA this season.

Got his first MLB hit, a double.

Just read that J A Happ is 6-0 since joining the Yanks. Prior to coming to Pittsburgh  in July 2015 he was a mediocre pitcher, but since then he has been unbelievable.

Billy O'Dell died on Wednesday (9/12/18). The LHP was primarily a starter as an Oriole and Giant but finished his career as a reliever with the Pirates in 1966-67 at age 33-34. In his final MLB season he made 11 starts for the Bucs filling in for the injured Vern Law while also making 16 BP appearances. Overall, it was a poor season for O'Dell and his last in MLB. But I recall listening on KDKA radio in his first game that season when he relieved Dennis Ribant in the 4th inning vs the Phillies and pitched 5.1 innings of 1-hit shutout relief in a 7-3 win. Future Pirates Jim Bunning and Grant Jackson pitched for Philly.

"Digger" O'Dell. He and Woodie Fryman kind of merge in the earliest parts of my baseball memory, so that I think Fryman  was already old when he was sent to the Phils in the Bunning deal.

If I recall when Fryman came up to Pittsburgh he was an older rookie. He had a few good seasons after he left the Pirates in the Bunning trade.

Fryman was a rookie in 1966 (age 26) and pitched for the Bucs the same 2 years as O'Dell (66-67). So he was 28 when traded to the Phillies in 1968. He pitched 18 years until age 43 in 1983.

Last night in Texas it was Glasnow for the Rays vs. Adrian Sampson for the Rangers. 2 ex-Bucs!
Glasnow with 6 SO innings for his 1st TB win.

If you ignore Glasnow's 1 meltdown of 7 ER in 0.2 of an inning, in his other 8 starts for the Rays he has pitched 43.2 innings with a 2.68 ERA, 24 Hits, 12 BB's, 47 K's

Jeff Bannister out as Rangers manager. I wonder if he could return to the Pirates in some capacity.

Big nite for Meadows on Friday!  Entered the game in the top of the 6th as a PH for the DH and then stayed in the game as DH.  Final line:  3 AB, 2 Runs, 3 Hits, 3 RBI, among the hits he had a 2B and 2 Singles.  Quite a nite for the young former Bucco stud prospect.   Angry
  

It's A Great Day for Bucco Baseball

Believe it or Not!  In 1959 the Pirates almost traded Dick Groat for Roger Maris.

Gerrit Cole is sitting on 272 strikeouts, and is the probable Astros starter against the Orioles tonight.  Four strikeouts tonight would move him into a five-way tie for the 98th most strikeouts in a season, with the tie including Bob Veale's Pirate record 1965 season.  Over 40 of the people above him pitched before the mound was moved to 60'6".

The mound was lowered in 1969 from 15 to 10 inches. It was always 60'6". The interesting thing is that pitchers now pitch considerably fewer innings. Pitch counts determine innings. CGs are almost nonexistent. Cole has 272 Ks in 194.1 innings. Veale had 276 Ks in 266 innings.
