This is what I am curious about too. I have Aramis hitting the DL today and my FA options aren't exactly desirable.

They seem to speculate a Tuesday callup for Alvarez here.

Would you be willing to take a chance on him over a player like Jose Lopez or Callaspo? Trying to gage a value for him...

Did Tabata hurt himself last night? Leg injury or something?

Serious post.

I thought I read it was a hamstring. Hopefully not. I just picked him up and pretty much all of his value is tied up in those hamstrings.

cramp ..

They also lost Tabata in the eighth with that hamstring cramp. Russell said they didn't think it was anything serious and neither did Tabata.

"It felt tight when [I swung in the eighth]," Tabata said. "Right now, it feels good so tomorrow [hopefully] it's going to feel better."

For anyone interested, I heard from a couple different local Pittsburgh sports guys that Alvarez could be up in one of the next Pirates homestands.

It's getting a "little" exciting for us Pirates fans out there. Let's see what the youngsters can do!

Were do we see Alvarez batting when he gets the call? I'm thinking:

1-Tabata (LF)
2- Walker (2nd)
3- McCutch (CF)
4- Jones (1st)
5- Doumit (C)
6- Alvarez (3rd)
7- Milledge (RF)
8- Cedeno (SS)
9- Pitcher
