• Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 149

    I know people likely reacted to last night’s loss but come one, the Cubs are still a major league team and you can’t expect the Pirates to constantly sweep them. They’re going to lose games down the stretch like every other team so try to breath. If they lose today it’s time to be pissed.…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 148

    I’ll say one thing, the Pirates have been taking care of business against the teams they should be beating. This is a favorable stretch, no doubt, but they’re still playing professionals so kudos to them for not falling into a trap. Many previous Pirates teams were known for doing just that. It’s way too soon…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 147

    Not a whole lot to complain about in regards to yesterday’s game.  Great outing by Francisco Liriano,  something we’ve been getting accustomed to, and the bats did enough to win. Like Hurdle, I think I would have pulled Liriano too. Just a shame the bullpen is such a large pile of dookie.  I’m not yet…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Philadelphia Phillies – Game 146

    I hope you weren’t too upset with yesterday’s very small protest.  Some things are just more important than baseball and, frankly, I’m a sucker for a protest. But hey!  The Pirates won.  Sure they effed away the potential five game winning streak that basically no team makes the playoffs without achieving , but they’re still…

      In solidarity with the companies participating in Internet Slowdown Day I won’t be doing a preview today.  Check back tomorrow.      

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Philadelphia Phillies – Game 144

    Pirates getting awfully close to that big winning streak the overwhelming majority of playoff teams have historically achieved! Edinson Volquez tries for win number twelve.  Volquez has been the team’s best starter right?  That’s insane to believe after all the vitriol (some from yours truly) about the signing.  I figured he’d be on the Pirates…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Philadelphia Phillies – Game 143

    Antonio Brown demonstrates what the Pirates did to the Cubs. And kicking the Cubs in the head was EXACTLY what this team needed to do. They didn’t need to just win the series, they needed to sweep it. Credit them, they kicked the shit out of the Cubs in this series. Make no mistake, the…
