Here's why the official scorer gave Gregerson the win:
Rule 10.17(c) states:
The official scorer shall not credit as the winning pitcher a relief pitcher who is ineffective in a brief appearance, when at least one succeeding relief pitcher pitches effectively in helping his team maintain its lead. In such a case, the official scorer shall credit as the winning pitcher the succeeding relief pitcher who was most effective, in the judgment of the official scorer.
Rule 10.17(c) Comment: The official scorer generally should, but is not required to, consider the appearance of a relief pitcher to be ineffective and brief if such relief pitcher pitches less than one inning and allows two or
more earned runs to score (even if such runs are charged to a previous pitcher). Rule 10.17 (b) Comment provides guidance on choosing the winning pitcher from among several succeeding relief pitchers.

Not sure this helps with the 3 year old question. My wife and I sat about 20 rows up, between home plate and 3rd base. Seats were very good. PNC Stadium is a great venue.

Prior to his injury, major league pitching had caught up to Travis - after his amazing start, he was struggling significantly. Not that a rookie pitcher has any lock on success, but unless you're really weak at 2B, I'd be inclined to keep Bolsinger.

Forget about prospects - a very few become great; some are ok, most don't cut it. Get players who are actually producing at the major league level - minor league stats are precisely that - minor league.

depends on league settings. if its a standard league (player additions / deletions occur overnight) you can't do it. Your moves can't be made before Monday and will be reflected Tuesday.

buxton, belt and sanchez won't get you abreu - and you want him to throw in martinez and plouffe for nothing???

Pillar has an excellent glove but doesn't do much offensively - his production thus far is his peak. Zobrist has little trade value - his season has been a bust. Check your league standings to see who needs saves - Cecil should have some value for those teams.

what usually happens is that one of the teams had a player on the dl at the time the trade was accepted, and in the interim, that player was activated. In one of my league, a trade disappeared 2 days ago because Travis D'Arnaud came off the dl, but was still one one's teams dl position.

My initial reaction is no - this is his 6th year, and his 1st 5 were mediocre. However, Rogers Centre is very hitter friendly which helps, and he has a real good glove which should assure him of lots of starts - when Batista was dh'ing because of his shoulder injury, EE was forced to start at 1B and there was no spot for Smoak to play. So he does have a golden opportunity.
