Felipe Prefers His Pirate Booty Without Aged Cheddar

Pirates organization should be on an episode of Botched. Are they the worst organization or what? Hint: Â The answer is not 'or what.' Let's do a brief recap of what a giant POS team this is. Pirates' closer, Felipe Vazquez, decided to try to bite off Kyle Crick's finger last week. A giant piece of garbage move? Well, gee, Wally, I don't know, it seems like that's not a nice thing to do. The Pirates are dead-last in the NL Central, as they're wont to be, so suspend the giant festering wound that is Vazquez, right? Gosh, Ms. Molly, that seems obvious. Â Well, no, of course not. The Pirates are trying to avoid losing 95 games and only lose 94 games instead, so the Pirates made the chickenshizz move to stick with Vazquez. This is, after all, the club that didn't want to trade Felipe Vazquez for prospects at the trade deadline. Finishing in last with 94 wins instead of 95 must mean a lot to them. Now, the jagoff that is Vazquez is arrested for being the worst type of human and looks like he'll never pitch again. No wonder Felipe Vazquez changed his name last year, he's a giant pedophile creep! Â You did good, Pirates! Maybe to go with your pitch-to-contact pitching coach, your clueless manager and your maybe-we-can-lose-only-94-games team, you can find another awesome trade like sending Austin Meadows and Tyler Glasnow for Chris Archer. Any hoo! I'd guess Keone Kela or Richard Rodriguez is the closer for the final week-plus, in that order. Â Anyway, here's what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball: (více...)
