  • Pirates Plan To Make Qualifying Offer

    Looks like Pirates fans can sleep tight knowing Neal Huntington’s aversion to risk won’t completely screw up a Qualifying Offer for Russell Martin. Jon Heyman is reporting that the Pirates will indeed make a QO to the team’s second best player. This is literally the only good move the Pirates could make in this situation.…

  • NHL Predictions (Sure To Go Wrong)

    Through Friday night, all 30 NHL teams have at least one game in the books. It’s too early to draw conclusions, but everyone at least makes some long-term projections about who will make the playoffs, who will miss out, and who will take home some hardware. I’m no different, so here are the official NHL…

  • 2014 Pirates In Memoriam

    I wanted to take some time before I wrote my thoughts on the 2014 Pittsburgh Pirates.  I didn’t want the post to be a collection of fucks and sucks, assholes and damnits. Enough time has likely passed that this won’t be that but maybe that isn’t a good thing.  Maybe the fucks and sucks post…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Francisco Giants – Wildcard Game

    Alright, alright!  It seems like I’ve had forever to do this post but, like High School, and Tech School, and my bills, why not wait until right around the day of the game to get this shindig started? This will probably have some length to it.  Not unlike your humble blogger writing it. We got…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 162

    I gotta say,  Clint Hurdle has really pissed me off with his management of the pitching staff recently.   The way he stuck with Jeff Locke until the game was out of hand was shameful.   The way Mark Melancon sat on the bench while far inferior players vomited all over themselves was a complete…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds- Game 160

    Bats woke up! And now the Bucs are a pubic hair away from a division championship. I guess I should probably mention that the Brewers, sadly, will not be making the playoffs…. again…. Go to hell, twats! Your Pittsburgh Pirates? They’ll be going to the playoffs….again…. Don’t quote me on this but I think Bernie…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – Game 159

    That loss hurt.  It hurt Jeff Locke for sure and it likely ended up wiping away any real chances the Pirates had at winning the division. A shame too since St. Louis lost. But you honestly can’t reasonably expect the Pirates to just win eight in a row. That might be very close to what…
