Pirates claim Chan Ho Park

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 04, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Of course an ex-Yankees pitcher is heading to Pittsburgh. Isn’t this what always happens?

The Pirates have claimed Chan Ho Park off waivers and will add him to their limited pitching staff. Pittsburgh will pick up what’s left of Park’s contract.

That was one of two pitching waiver claims for the Pirates, who also picked up Chris Resop from the Braves. To make room for Resop, the Pirates designated another former Yankees reliever, Steven Jackson, for assignment. As always, Jackson was generating a lot of ground balls in Triple-A, but he struggled in limited big league action this season. This is the second time he’s been designated by the Pirates.

    LOL! Watching MLB network and they have a bat for Alex’s 600th on already. Bet they were somewhat interested in this milestone!

    Park getting picked up by the Pirates isn’t such a bad thing for them or for the Yankees. The Yankees save some money by this, and who knows, maybe he will be decent enough for them being that they are in the NL.

    So I see that CHoP has now been optioned to our AAAA affiliate. :)

    I tend to echo RAB’s twitter comment earlier….

    RiverAveBlues In terms of career moves, it must feel pretty crappy to go from the Yankees to the Pirates in the span of five days.

  4. CR9 August 4th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Oh well, I don’t mind what you think. Continue believing it! More fun for me that way! Just add another to the list. I’m now Jim Pir-one, Chip, Matt, gay yankees fan, and whatever other poster that you and others dont like! And when Bret the Hitman posts false rumors, Im him too! :lol:

  5. CR9 August 4th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    Like I said yesterday, you all can accuse me of anything you like and it doesn’t bother me. Just don’t accuse me of being a Red Sox fan! :)

  6. Jeremy August 4th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    I find it funny that Chipper Jones a Met killer named his son after Shea Stadium.
    But Chipper is a class act and great player. I can’t wait to see him become a member of the Hall of Fame.

  7. LGY August 4th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    CR9,

    Don’t worry about people claiming you are Jim, Chip, etc.

    All those guys are Yankee fans, so I know it can’t be you.

  8. CR9 August 4th, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    LGY

    LOL! You do have quite a sense of humor!

    I don’t know how to put up a post from the last one, but if you go back to my post at
    8:12 pm I think it might help you out.

    # Giuseppe Franco August 4th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Well, considering you once switched your handle back to “Jim Pir-one” because you didn’t think I’d recognize your current CR9 handle [due to my long absence over the offseason] is kind of a dead giveaway.
    —————–
    OUCH!

    Hey, Jim, fess up man the jiggs up. Giuseppe’s got you dead to rights!

  11. Jeremy August 4th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    That’s nice that Billy Wagner is helping out former Yankee Mike Dunn with his mechanics.
    Dunn has great stuff.

  12. Giuseppe Franco August 4th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Dunn really does have good stuff. His issue has always been his command.

    Even in the minors, he couldn’t find the strike zone with a GPS. Watching his ML debut last year (I think it was his debut, anyway) was rather painful.

  13. luis August 4th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Hi everyone. First game i miss due to work and arod hits it!!!. man that’s bad luck or what??, i saw the video of the at bat it was classic arod swing

  14. Betsy August 4th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    KPB, I saw that -and I think that’s an excellent idea. I mean, how many phones can they have at Menswearhouse? Our phone stores the call (at least the time it was made) – so we know what time the call was made. There’s a police station next door, so I may go there tonight or tomorrow.

    M, from prior thread, yes – we looked it up in the phone book. That is an Oceanside, NY store – out on the south shore of LI

    Thanks for the info. It was interesting watching him in spring training.

  16. blake August 4th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    “Hi everyone. First game i miss due to work and arod hits it!!!.”

    Me too….I knew thats what would happen though.

  17. luis August 4th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    GB7,

    I haven’t seen laird play yet. Do you think he is the real deal or just another trade chip??

  18. Betsy August 4th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Trish, I just read your post – jeez, I’m really sorry for what you went through. I will e-mail Chad and ask him for your e-mail.

  19. Giuseppe Franco August 4th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Sorry to hear some d-bag did that to you, Betsy.

    Unreal.

  20. KPB August 4th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Betsy

    Glad to help out. I hope everything ends OK and this fool finds himself behind bars.

  21. Joe from Long Island August 4th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Hi all –

    Just turned on MLBN, and they’re showing the Mets-Braves game, where Pelfrey plunked the hitter on the left triceps to force in a run. That’s 5 runs in the 5th for Atlanta.

    Pelfrey started out like a house on fire, last 6 games, per MLBN, his ERA is over 10. What in the world happened to him?

  22. Rich in NJ August 4th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    He’ll pitch well for them.

  23. luis August 4th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Betsy,
    I don’t know what happened to you, but i hope everything is ok

  24. luis August 4th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Hi Loe,

    his mechanics are out of whack, he is unable to locate

  25. Betsy August 4th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Ok, well I called the police and the officer I s/w was very nice. He said the guy wasn’t breaking any law, unfortunately, so at this time he couldn’t do much. However, he suggested that I keep a record of future calls and if it becomes a pattern, they will take it from there.

    I think that’s fair………..I’m going to keep a record in Microsoft Word at home, with details of when he called, from where he called and what the conversation was like. It’s as close as I can get to recording the call.

  26. Erica in NY August 4th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    new thread :arrow:

  27. Jeremy August 4th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Joe from Long Island
    I don’t know what’s wrong with Pelfrey. It seemed like he turned a corner but he might be a headcase.
    Also it seems like velocity is not an issue put a lack of movement and bite on his pitches.
    If you look at his stats right- handers are killing him with an over .300 batting average which is weird for a right- handed pitcher. Also he is giving up just about the same amount of hits to innings pitched.

  28. Betsy August 4th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Luis, thanks so much – I think it will be fine.

    GF, I appreciate it. You know, maybe I’m naive, but it never occurred to me that anyone would do this……….I guess I know it happens, but wow. The police officer was very nice – but I told him I hope I don’t have to call him again.

  29. beedogs August 4th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Good luck to CHP. Hopefully he can keep the uncontrollable diarrhea at bay in Pittsburgh.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
