I'm pretty sure Jonah Hill would be a more effective reliever than Zagursky, so I take offense to this post.

How the hell did we release Contreras but keep Zagursky. Contreras gave up 5 runs in 5 innings. zagursky gave up 5 in just one innings last night. Not saying ether is a good option but Zag has been beyond awful.

To be fair they obviously didn't know Zagurski was going to be that awful considering it happened after they released Contreras. Both are stopgaps and Zagurski will be gone in due time. It was a harmless experiment and he had an excellent K rate in AAA, but his promotion basically confirms what we already knew which is that he will get lit up in the majors. Contreras was a 41-year old veteran and it's much easier to pull the plug on such.

I'll be glad when he's gone so people can move on from the childish, exhausting fat jokes.

You mean like "When Zagurski sits around the bullpen......................he SITS AROUND the bullpen?" :lol:

Zack Duke is available. Could he be any worse than Zagurski? What about Jonathan Sanchez?

Zagursky is probably getting cut today for Cumpton.

Who could think of another player that should be gone to make room for the new kid? He's got to be the number one pitcher we can spare(?).

Zagurski has been designated for assignment to make room for Cumpton as per the Official Pittsburgh Pirate Facebook page.

Between JMac2 and Zags we've gotten enough future comparison fodder to last a good while.

We can now retire those Brian Bixler and Chris Bootcheck ones*.

It was a good run.

R.I.P. Bixler/Bootcheck comparisons: 2008-2013 :cry:

*But feel free to dust off a Hayden Penn, Brian Bass or Chris Jakubauskas one at will to show off your Pirates acumen. :D

And what a prize catch he will be for his next team. In fact a whale of a catch.

He is 30 years old and has thrown 75 innings in his career, with a 6.84 ERA and a 1.73 whip.
