A late-summer move combined with a hectic job schedule has obviously limited my ability to score the Pirates on a daily basis. Still, I kept a close eye on the Bucs throughout the 2009 season (as difficult as that was to do at times). I’m hopeful that I’ll soon have more time to continue working on my scorecard, and hopefully I’ll have time throughout next season to ‘keep the books.’

While most eyes (including mine) are closely watching the MLB playoffs, today does mark Opening Day of the Arizona Fall League.

In case you follow the Arizona Fall League (or any of the Winter Leagues) closely, roster files are now available in the Rosters section of this site.

Nationals’ pitcher, Stephen Strasburg highlights the Phoenix Desert Dogs’ roster.

I’ll be checking to see how Jose Tabata plays on the Scottsdale Scorpions’ roster.

Other Pirates in the AFL include: Daniel Moskos, Donnie Veal, Tony Watson, Brian Friday, Chase D’Arnaud, and 1 additional Pitcher.

Enjoy the Playoffs (and winter baseball)!


The Pirates try to avoid a 3 game losing streak and their 18th consecutive loss at Miller Park.

Ian Snell @ Yovani Gallardo – 1:05 P.M.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Updated: Well, not too much to say about this one. Yovani Gallardo pitched a stellar game for the Brew Crew. He pitched 8 innings, allowed 2 hits, and struck out 11 Pirate batters. Oh yeah, he also hit a solo home run to lead his team to the 1-0 victory.

Ian Snell pitched well, but he probably shouldn’t have stayed in as long as he did. He threw 131 pitches.

The Pirates have now been swept, and they’ve now been defeated 18 consecutive times at Miller Park. The record is 19.

Former Pirate, Chris Duffy contributed a hit for the Brewers today.

From the Minor Leagues, the injury bug is still alive. Jose Tabata will be out 4-6 weeks with a hamstring injury.

The Reds are coming to Pittsburgh for the weekend. I’ll be there on Saturday!

Enjoy the off day! Go Bucs!
