McCutchen and Hanrahan make All-Star team; McDonald, Grilli, and Burnett snubbed

The rosters for next week’s All-Star game have been released, and two Pirates are on the list. That’s one more than we usually see before any replacements start coming in — but not not quite as many as we were hoping for this season. Andrew McCutchen was a lock to make it. It’s pretty sad that he only finished 7th among NL outfielders in fan votes, but I’d have to think...

McCutchen and Hanrahan will Represent Pirates at All-Star Game 2012

  Andrew McCutchen has been named to the National League All-Star team for the second year in a row. He is sporting a batting average of .346 and ranks in the top 10 for home runs and RBIs.  Not to be outdone, Closer Joel Hanrahan has also been named to the NL team for the second year in a row. He currently has a 2.10 ERA with a record of 3-0 and 20 saves. Check out the rest of...

A.J. Burnett Wins 8 Straight

Bucs starter A.J. Burnett won his 8th straight start against the Phillies on Thursday.   Put simply, he  is dominating the mound right now.  Burnett is 9-2 this season with a 3.31 ERA and 69 strike outs.  Only 5 pitchers in the league have more wins. After 81.2 innings so far this season, Burnett has given up 72 hits, 29 walks, and 31 runs (30 earned) which results in a WHIP...

Current Pirates ace A.J. Burnett was nothing more than a tattooed mental midget with the Yankees in the Bronx

Missed chances cost Bucs the sweep

The Pirates missed a bunch of chances this afternoon and came up just short of a sweep in St. Louis as a result. Erik Bedard wasn’t very good (yet again) and put the Bucs in an early hole, serving up a solo shot to Yadier Molina in the second inning and a two-run shot to Allen Craig in the third. Much like on Friday night, though, the Pirates were able to battle their way out of...

Jeff Karstens (1-2) thrived in sweltering heat, allowing four hits with seven strikeouts in seven strong...
