  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 136

    Woohoo!  Potential sweep?  Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh buddy! It’ll probably be a tough go of it today but all the Pirates need to do is keep on winning every series. If they do that they’ll be just fine. Francisco Liriano (3-10, 3.98) tries for the sweep against the hated Johnny Cueto (15-8, 2.56). There aren’t going to be…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – Game 125

    That was the Pirates many of us grew up watching throughout our teenage years and early 20s. God that was pathetic. Almost everything that infuriates me about this team was on display yesterday. Shitty fielding, bullpen blowing it, three worst guys on the team all in the lineup at the same time. But hey, ”…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 124

    Vomit.  That’s really all I have in regards to last night’s abortion. Yucky, biley, burny vomit. The Pirates really are doing their best in letting the wildcard drip down their leg. The bullpen has been a problem all year? Fuck it.  Starting pitching inconsistent?  Fuck it.  Record attendance?  Time for a ski lift. At least…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Francisco Giants – Game 105

    I’m as big a baseball fan I know and I wanted to pull my hair out at the length of yesterday’s game.  Even with some offense it was brutal! At least the Pirates got a win out of it, though it was the first series the Pirates lost against the NL West. Vance Worley time!…

  • 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.…
