Kind of a bummer free agent year. Unlike years past, there is not one guy who is going to motivate anyone to check with the FAA to see if and when a plane with him on it is en route to the city of a team wooing him. Those reports are almost always wrong, of course, but they’re a hell of a lot of fun.

In the meantime, we’ll settle for this:

 

Anyone wanna go stand outside of Slow’s BBQ on Michigan Avenue to see if Dave Dombrowski and Hunter have lunch there? Because if they are really serious, that’s where they’ll take him.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
