MLB Bullets Is Looking To End A Losing Streak

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

As the Pirates approach 82 wins, they add another player to get them into the playoffs. The Dodgers add a big name, but is he still a good player? Nelson Cruz will return for the playoffs, but Jhonny Peralta may not. David Price had an expensive cab ride and even the cops are tired of the Blue Jays.

Here's a fun fact. I thought that Barry Bonds would have been the last active player who played for a Pirates team that had a winning record, but then I remembered that Tim Wakefield was on that team and he pitched until 2011. But even he wasn't the last active player to have played on a winning Pirates team. Miguel Batista was a Rule 5 pick of that team and he actually pitched two innings before getting returned to the Expos. Batista played last season and was even pitching for the Blue Jays Triple-A team this year until he was released in May.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
