An abbreviated collection of links on this final Tuesday of February…

- The Pirates were slated to take on the Orioles today at 1:05, but the game was postponed.

- The Bradenton skies actually cleared up shortly after the game was called off (via Rob Biertempfel):

- Although they didn’t play, Russell Martin was scratched from the lineup this morning due to “upper body soreness.”

- They’ll turn around and play the Rays tomorrow; A.J. Burnett will start on the hill. Wandy Rodriguez, who was scheduled to pitch this afternoon, will relieve him. Top prospect Gerrit Cole will get into the game as well.

- Brandon Inge sees parallels between the Bucs and the 2006 Detroit Tigers, who reached the World Series.

- Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects wonders if Tyler Glasnow, who stands 6’8″ tall, can be as good as Cole or Jameson Taillon.

- R.J. White of CBS Sports weighs in on the Pirates’ farm system.

- The Lancaster Barnstormers signed former Pirate pitcher Yoslan Herrera.
