Weekend Recap

Well, the summer is over and the high heating bills are just a few weeks away. Here are some links to get you through your Monday...

Pedro Alvarez is a Pirate, pending MLB resolution (Post Gazette)

Penn State climbs to #12 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll (USA TODAY)

Lane Kiffin out in Oakland? (Oakland Tribune)

Vanderbilt is ranked for the first time since 1984 (

Sergei Gonchar hurt, return unknown (Tribune-Review)

The Pirates close PNC Park for the year with another loss. Is this the end of the Jack Wilson era in the Burgh? (The Green Weenie)

Is anyone watching the WNBA playoffs?

and finally... I am a Jack Wilson fan. With that being said, I think it is time for him to move on. It's time to take a look at Bixler, and some of the other guys in the minors. The Bucs have already cleaned house and gotten younger. I was always surprised when Wilson didn't get traded but with his high salary, and .250 batting average, the market just wasn't there for him. Every team can use a slick fielder like Wilson, but don't expect to see him make $6.65 million next season. If Wilson does not come back next year, Adam LaRoche will be the highest paid Bucco. Ouch
