  • Pirates Extend Qualifying Offer To Martin, Liriano

    In an unsurprising move the Pirates extended a Qualifying Offer to Russell Martin.  I say unsurprising because it was the obvious move, the only move the Pirates could logically make.  To not make the QO to Martin would have been legitimately criminal.  I’m pretty sure Tom Corbett signed a law at some point stating as much.…

Jon Heyman is reporting that the Pirates will indeed make a QO to the team’s second best player. This is literally the only good move the Pirates could make in this situation.…

  • The Pens – The Good, The Bad, and The Week Ahead

    The Pittsburgh Penguins have way too many days off in October. That much is for sure. But the slow start for the Pens allows for the team to get in plenty of practice and continue to get accustomed to Mike Johnston’s style of play. Although, if we judge based on the first two outings for…
