The extras for tonight's show

The Pirates have tabbed these nine meant to walk the plank versus Stephen Strasburg.

Everyone will be watching how these batters do tonight, but nobody will be paying too much attention to them -- just what their results tell us about Strasburg.

In the end, one of these nine will tell their kids he was the first to be struck out by Strasburg, another may say he had the fist hit and yet another could be the first to hit a home run off the most hyped pitcher in a generation.

Ill Crosby not with Pirates


Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter Rob Biertempfel says via Twitter that Pirates infielder Bobby Crosby is not with the team in Washington, having stayed behind with a stomach virus. The team hopes he'll be back in action Wednesday.

Solis, Allie lead Round 2

The Nationals have selected left-hander Sammy Solis of the University of San Diego with the first pick in the second round of the draft.

With the second pick, the Pirates took one of the most intriguing prospects, strong-armed right-hander Stetson Allie out of Ohio's St. Edward High School.

University of Texas right-hander Brandon Workman, who might have dropped due to reports he was looking for a big signing bonus, was finally taken at No. 57 by the Red Sox.

Your non-Harper draft begins with RHP

The Pirates took Texas high school right-hander Jameson Taillon with the second pick, meaning the Baltimore Orioles will likely take shortstop Manny Machado and then the rest of the mock drafts fall to pieces.

For the last month, most of the draft has been cut down to three phases: Bryce Harper hype, Tallion or Machado and then the rest.

With Taillon and Machado out of the way, the college players will start to be taken off the board.
