  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 154

    After those losses to the Brewers late in games earlier this season last night’s victory was very fulfilling. Even more so because, like in the Grilli meltdown, the starter pitched pretty outstanding before his bullpen peed themselves. Any time something bad happens to Gallardo against the Bucs (from a professional standpoint) is alright in my…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 153

    Alright, alright! This is the biggest series of the year. I know we’ve said it a million times but when I say it you best believe I mean it. It’s very fitting that we have a late season brawl with the Poo-crew with a playoff spot at stake. Milwaukee is freeeeeeeeeeee, freeeee fallin’! Problem is…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Boston Red Sox – Game 152

    The Pirates look like a team that could win it all right now.  It’s the Red Sox though.  The Red Sox are terrible.  I do think the Pirates are definitely playing great ball, don’t get me wrong, I just want to see them do it against the Brewers before I get too excited……again. You can’t…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Boston Red Sox – Game 151

    Pirates won!  Just as importantly the Braves lost again.  The Braves are basically fucked when it comes to making the playoffs.  That’s fine with me.  While the Braves aren’t currently out of the Wildcard race they’re 5.5 games behind the Pirates for the second spot and the Brewers are in front of the Braves. With…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Boston Red Sox – Game 150

    As someone that likes to think of things in “us versus them” terms I have this picture in my head of the dude that make schedules being like, “bwahahahahahaha! Pirates will face the Red Sox during the stretch run! I hate small market teams!”. That’s basically what I think Major League Baseball thinks of small…

  • 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…
