and the answer to tonight’s #FTFTrivia is…

Eight catchers

Those eight catchers were Michael McKenry, Ryan Doumit, Chris Snyder, Dusty Brown, Jason Jaramillo, Eric Fryer, Matt Pagnozzi, and Wyatt Toregas. This is significant because the Pirates have just reached an agreement with catcher Russell Martin.

Congratulations to tonight’s winners: @freezoid400, @mjportash, @BMVenslosky, @_DrewBrown, @Irate_Fan7, @TSchusyy, @bmur13, @NuttingHostage, and @s7pinney.

Thanks to all who participated, and tune in next time for another edition of #FTFTrivia.

Go Bucs

First roster moves of the offseason

The Pirates made their first moves of the offseason today. Not exactly Earth-shattering transactions, but not much Bucco news has surfaced (other than more Hoka Hey).

First, they claimed RHP Chad Beck and C Ali Solis off waivers. Beck, 27, had a 6.32 ERA in 15.2 innings for Toronto in 2012. Solis, 25, had no hits in four at-bats for San Diego this year.

In order to make room for the two players, they designated C Eric Fryer and INF Jeff Clement for assignment. Both players were up and down over the past few years; not great talent, but filled in when necessary.

More to come. Go Bucs.
