Be patient Pirates fans, Tallion, Polanco and Lambo will be up soon

Three games into the season and the Pirates are 2-1. Many Pirates fans who have been upset with the Pirates lack of offseason moves have been begging the organization to give players like Andrew Lambo, Gregory Polanco and Jameson Tallion chances to spice up the team. Even after impressive spring trainings from all of them, the Pirate’s front office appears to be content with keeping...

Pirates still in search of a first baseman

Andrew Lambo shuffled to his right and backhanded a hard shot in the hole between first and second base. "Lambo!" Neil Walker called across the diamond in appreciation. Lambo returned to his position at first base. Gregory Polanco was in the box during batting practice, so every ball put in play had some extra juice on it, but those pulled to right field were moving especially...

Andrew Lambo: 2014 Fantasy Sleeper

Sure, we’ll see plenty of lonely walks back to the dugout after Ks, but there will be a lot of HR trots, too.If there’s one thing I learned from 2013, it’s that a 30/100 season is supremely valuable — even if it comes from a guy who hits .240 (e.g., Pedro Alvarez).And that’s why I’m officially declaring Andrew Lambo a must-target 2014 fantasy baseball sleeper.With Justin...

First Pitch: What To Do With Andrew Lambo?

Andrew Lambo was the Pirates’ Minor League Player of the Year. (Photo Credit: David Hague) One of the most surprising things about the upcoming off-season is how little attention Andrew Lambo has received. In Lambo, the Pirates had a 24-year-old outfielder who combined for 33 home runs between Double-A, Triple-A, and the majors in 2013. In his very limited time in the majors he...

What can we actually expect from Andrew Lambo?

If you missed it, and I’m sure you have not, the Pirates made it official today that Andrew Lambo would be joining the club in time for the start of this week’s series against the St. Louis Cardinals. We all know the breakout season Lambo has had this year and when you couple that with the fact that the Pirates right fielders have combined to produce the worst offensive numbers...

Andrew Lambo Freed

The Pirates have finally answered the cries of nearly every fan that reads regular minor league updates, checks Twitter, or just wants to see some offense out of right field. They are calling up Andrew Lambo for tonight’s game against the Cardinals. Lambo is a 25 year old that was acquired years ago in the James McDonald / Octavio Dotel trade. He had been a fairly pretty disappointing...

Pirates to Call Up Andrew Lambo

Andrew Lambo has been freed. (Photo Credit: David Hague) The Pittsburgh Pirates will call up Andrew Lambo tomorrow, according to a Pirates press release. There was word on Twitter earlier today from what appeared to be a family member of Lambo’s that he was being called up. The corresponding roster moves have yet to be announced. The Pirates won’t need to make a 40-man move,...

Let's talk about Andrew Lambo

For much of the summer, there's been a slowly growing call for Andrew Lambo's promotion to Pittsburgh. Lambo's been hot all year and his promotion from Altoona to Indianapolis in early June did nothing to slow him down. He's hit for great power with 28 home runs between the two levels this year and he's mauled right-handed pitching, which are two things that the...

Andrew Lambo (finally) promoted to AAA Indianapolis

A recurring theme in my coverage of the Altoona Curve this season has been Andrew Lambo’s success.  As Tim Williams and I have both asserted, all season Lambo has been proving that he deserves a promotion.  And then tonight he contributed a two-rbi single in the 4th inning, leading to this tweet: Andrew Lambo with 2-RBI single for #Curve in 4th. It's time to #FreeLambo and...
