The Pittsburgh Pirates paid a visit to the Washington Nationals in D.C. Monday night. But that wasn't the greatest spectacle to behold.Instead, the greatest sight to behold was a Pirates fan, who apparently made the trek from Pennsylvania, to deliver a show of support to his favorite team by shaving a prickly message into his obscene chest hair.The fan's message read: "LET'S GO BUCS."It's safe to say this guy scared a few kids away during the whole ordeal. But this isn't the first time this guy has pulled off the stunt.In May, the same fan went shirtless in a show of support, by shaving away his chest hair in a message that read "LET'S GO PENS" in support of the hometown Penguins.Via For the Win

Jason Grilli's recent struggles and last night's injury

After Jason Grilli served up his home run to Jayson Werth last night, my immediate thought was that the first thing I wanted to do after the game ended was to dig through his profile on Brooks' Baseball to see if I could find a reason for his recent struggles. On June 18th, Grilli struck out the side against the Reds with a 4-0 lead. To that point, Grilli had 34 appearances and...

Gerrit Cole Rolls Through Nationals in 5-1 Pirates Victory

Gerrit Cole gave up fewer than two runs for the first time in his rookie season. (Photo Credit: David Hague) Gerrit Cole stepped into Tuesday’s start as the worst-performing pitcher in the Pirates rotation. Actually, let’s call it “worst-performing” because it’s really only his ERA (3.89, still better than NL-average) and strikeout rate (5.4 K/9) that were lagging behind...

Pirates Are the “Team Du Jour” For Matt Garza

The Pittsburgh Pirates are the “team du jour” for Chicago Cubs starter, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. If you don’t know what that means, perhaps this will help.

Annnnd…EXHALE!  The Pirates managed to navigate their way through another very tense contest in Cincinnati by FINALLY coming up with some big hits and getting some big outs late.
