The line from a 13-4 loss to the Blue Jays in Dunedin, Florida on Wednesday for Tyler Glasnow: 6 ER on 6 hits, 3 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 1 wild pitch in 2.2 IP.

(Sigh.)

We talked about how much of an enigma Glasnow continues to be and how, at this point, you can't expect him to make any kind of impact to the Major League club in 2018. All signs point to Glasnow being a pitcher who lacks confidence and command again this year and Colin is close to giving up on him. He just hasn't showed anything for you to hope in. 93.7 The Fan's Pirates pre and postgame host Chris Mack, who is filling in for Jim Colony this week, said Glasnow is a wasted roster spot right now even out of the bullpen because he simply does not throw enough strikes. Josh wishes he could place Steven Brault's head, aka his mental makeup, on Tyler Glasnow's body because that's the only way he would feel confident that Glasnow will make an impact with the big league club. You can hear more in the segment below.

Kevin Stallings got fired today (at about 9:55 a.m. as we were getting off the air, of course) and we talked about the sticky situation between Stallings and Pitt concerning his buyout. Colin said that the buyout number offered to Stallings was $7.5 million and that Stallings denied it because it was less than the $9.4 million he was owed. Stallings' camp vehemently denied that Pitt offered him that $7.5 million buyout. The guys said that Pitt should have offered him all of the $9.4 million right away and fired him right after the ACC Tournament loss to Notre Dame on Tuesday if they knew they wanted to part with him. 

Oh and Le'Veon Bell has further confused things by recording a video on Instagram last night saying that he was going to show up for Week 1 next season, only to say later in the video that he may not show up until Week 4. So much for that retirement talk, huh?
