News and Notes:

  • The maddening season (and career) of Pedro Alvarez continues.
  • From Pittsburgh to St. Louis?
  • It is seriously hard to root for the Cardinals. Their local newspaper is as arrogant as they seem to be. Playing the game the right way seems to have rubbed off on everyone in the city.
  • Former Pirates' pitching prospect Stetson Allie is now a Pirates hitting prospect.
  • To make room for Sunday's starter, Jordan Lyles, the Astros have sent utility man Matt Downs to Triple-A.
