Default Torres should be released.

He has become the worst relief pitcher in baseball. He and Jim Tracy should both be fired on the same day. One keeps blowing games and the other keeps putting him in to do so.

You can say that again. They need to make moves while they're still in it.

I'm so tired of retreads in the bullpen when we have young arms that need a chance.

Default Re: Torres should be released.

You know, the sad thing is that Tracy didn't take all that long before he brought the hammer down on Tony Armas for stinking up the joint and relegated him to a non-factor on the team (he's still on the team, right?)...but he continues to give Torres chance after chance after chance even after constantly screwing the Pirates out of wins. This now makes 6 wins that he has cost the Pirates, but will that stop Tracy from sending him out there again? No. It's f'ing ridiculous and totally expected from a franchise that stopped caring about winning the minute the first receipts came in from PNC Park in 2001.

What they need to do is dump Torres, Grabow and Bayliss and call up Bullington, VanBenschoten and any available left-hander they have in the minors. They can't possibly do any worse.

Amen to that brother.

I'll be more optimistic about this team the day Jim Tracy sees Pittsburgh in his rear view mirror.

Here's the kicker, Joe Beimel got the save. Yeah, that Joe Beimel. The same guy our brilliant front office gave up on.

To be fair, a couple of other teams gave up on Beimel before the Dodgers took a chance on him. The two that burn me more are Bronson Arroyo and Chris Young - Young in particular. He's done a real nice job of making the Pirates regret that decision, hasn't he?
