  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 93

    Ho. Lee. Shit. I guess the Pirates didn’t want to ruin their Pythagorean….. Protect that run differential. Edinson Volquez basically turning into a boss.  I almost can’t believe Clint Hurdle left him pitch an entire game.   An awesome performance. Jeff Locke.  I believe in you. Between my home Internet being down, a busy day…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Miami Marlins – Game 67

    Three of four is always good. I don’t give a shit if it’s the awful Cubs or any other team. All the credit in the world to Edinson Volquez. Well maybe not “all” the credit. Give some to Andrew Mccutchen as well. On the road again…… MLB definitely has little concern about weariness due to…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 66

    Splits are good but series wins are better, even if it’s the lowly Cubs you’re beating up on. Good enough start by Cumpton, great work by the bullpen. Edinson Volquez is in line to make his 13th start. Something most people thought was unlikely at best. Report Created on Baseball-Reference.com Volquez threw the rare quality…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 64

    It was very nice to see the rare complete performance from the Pirates.  Hitting and pitching finally performing together. It’s a beautiful thing. Gregory Polanco finally getting the call?  It’s a beautiful thing. Neal Walker’s appendix?  Well that’s not beautiful. Charlie Morton though.  That was a beautiful thing.  That’s the pitcher Morton truly can be.…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Diego Padres – Game 58

    Don’t look now but a group of guys are making up ground! Three games out of .500 ball, 2.5 games out of a wildcard spot. Imagine if they’d been playing their best 25 all season! Anyway I missed the game last night. The longest 9 inning game in the history of Petco. When I woke…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Diego Padres – Game 57

    I’m sure a few dipshits are running around saying they knew the Bucs would take 3 of 4 from the Dodgers but they’re all liars. Melisandre of Asshai couldn’t even have seen the outcome of this series in her flames. On to San Diego the Pirates go, the potential for a really good road trip…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – Game 54

    Imagine my surprise when I woke up to see a Pirates victory.  That’s right I went to bed.  I won’t lie to you. That’s what you get with me.  Complete honesty in a very respectful package. So kudos guys.  Pedro Alvarez, Russell Martin,  Josh Harrison,  Gerrit Cole…… thumbs up. Tonight is a shot at a…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Mets – Game 50

    “It’s hard to sweep a four game series!” Yeah but it’s still nice to do. Series wins are the goal. You keep on taking 2 of 3 you’re obviously going to be successful. Still, the Pirates are now 0-4 when in a position to sweep a team. Even worse they are 2 and 7 on…
