  • 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…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 49

    And the legend of Josh Harrison continues to grow. As of a few days ago, intentionally walking anyone to get to Harrison is suicide. The Pirates have a reasonable shot at sweeping the Nationals this afternoon. They’ve had three attempts to sweep teams so far and have done so zero times. Keep in mind, the…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 48

    On the menu today,  a potential series win against the Nationals.   Maybe. Charlie Morton, tip of the cap. Pedro Alvarez,  tip of the cap. Justin Wilson, wtf bro? It’s well past time to strip the bullpen of the “Shark Tank” name.  Maybe go with “Shark Yank” since these relievers have a penchant for performing…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 46

    I’d like to think I had a pretty good idea that last night was going to go very bad for Wandy Rodriguez.  In my wildest nightmares I didn’t see that coming. Wandy only gets one earned run, further proving how ridiculous not counting earned runs is.  Hell,  the error was on him! Remember that when…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 40

    Hiya friends! How exciting! A late rally in a tie game to smash the Brewers. That’ll help take some minds off the Penguins and the suicidal thoughts that accompanied em. Francisco Liriano pitched well. He still doesn’t have a win but he made a real, quality start. Hopefully it’s the beginning of Liriano turning it…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals – Game 25

    If you want “smart” fans/bloggers to call you “reactionary” or imply you’re an idiot you very well may have that today. The Neal Huntington stooge troop is in full force.  After another great performance wasted by the Pirates hapless offense water carriers abound,  attempting to put out the flames of well deserved criticism of their…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 19

    Have you ever felt the joy that comes from slamming your fingers in a car door?   Have you ever been kicked in the testicles? If you kept up with the Pirates and Penguins simultaneously last night I think that counts for both.  At the same time.  Even if you’re a female and/or tranny and…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 14

    Whatever that madness was last night it will continue today at 5:30. There are really no words to describe the bizarre nature of just about everything that happened. The game will be carried by Root Sports. Therefore, we could see some weak bullpens tonight. Pirates have Bryan Morris listed but I assume that’s because he…
