Big Night: Pirates win game, win draft.

Great win last night for the Bucs. Ryan Doumit was 4-4 including a three run bomb. Jose Veras came into a tough spot and froze Albert Pujols looking with the game on the line. James McDonald got the win (number 8 on the year) but I won’t be able to update the Searage Shaves Standings for a few days. Hopefully there will be a few others to add by then too.

The excitement didn’t end there as the Pirates signed the #1 pick in the draft Gerrit Cole but also signed their #2 pick Josh Bell. Cole’s signing was expected but Bell was a first round talent who fell because it was believed he would follow through on his commitment to the University of Texas. Superb job by Neal Huntington to get both guys in the fold.
