Pirates Promote Pedro Alvarez

Well, my post from yesterday did, as expected, turn out to be mostly moot. Pedro Alvarez will join the Pirates Wednesday:

Pedro Alvarez, the 23-year-old third baseman and No.2 overall pick in the 2008 draft, was called up by the Pirates late Tuesday night following a game he played for the Class AAA Indianapolis Indians.

As Alvarez walked from the clubhouse to the Indians’ team bus — which was bound for Buffalo with his bags already on it — his cellphone rang.

It was a call from Pirates management alerting him to the news that he was bound for the major leagues…

“This is the first step in a long journey, hopefully,” he said. “It is a big one. All those practices and all those long drives, it pays dividends in situations like this. … I am at a shortage for words just trying to explain what this feels like right now.”

Yayy! Happy Pirates thing!!! Did I mention they lost their ninth–DAMMIT. Never mind, saving it for the next post. Yayyy Pedro Alvarez!!! Watching this team play right now isn’t dental-pain excruciating at all!
