Marte is not in the lineup today and Matt Hague is listed on the scorecard. Interesting.

Apparently, Marte is on bereavement leave to the Dominican. Sad.

Hague has played well this year. .820 OPS after getting off to a slow start. He'll be 29 next month.

Well, he's always been a hit machine. Maybe he'll be a version of Moss or Pearce that we actually kept around long enough to be Moss or Pearce.

Mike hit on the reason why I am much more patient with Pirates' hitters ... Brandon Moss and Steve Pearce were looked at as throwaways.

Uhhh, yeah, about that:

Moss with Oakland: 313 G's, 162 R's, 57 2B's, 5 3B's, 70 HR, 202 RBI's, .269/.348/.542, .890 OPS
Pearce with Balt the past 2 years: 96 G's, 38 R's, 21 2B's, 14 HR's, 43 RBI's, .298/.372/.514, .886 OPS

Ouch.

And Harrison as recently as April. People wanted him gone last year.

How about that Steve Pearce? He's always been a decent hitter but who would have expected this? His .944 OPS matches Nelson Cruz.

Goes to show you, you just never know.

Marte's mother-in-law had been sick and recently passed away.
Condolences to the family.
