Following along with the Pedro Alvarez saga…
- If you missed Cork’s update yesterday, start with that.
- Scott Boras fired back at Frank Coonelly, calling one of Coonelly’s comments "patently absurd." Dejan Kovacevic talked to GM Neal Huntington, who doesn’t expect a ruling until late September or early October.
- Huntington also noted that the Pirates will not renegotiate Alvarez’s deal, if that is somehow allowed.
