EriKKKKKKKKKKK Bedard, Pedro salvage final game against Cards

Final: Pirates 6, Cardinals 3 WP: Erik Bedard (2-4, 2.65 ERA) LP: Jake Westbrook (3-2, 2.12 ERA) I couldn’t watch this game, but I did listen to it and from what I heard, it had to be one of the stranger starts a pitcher could have. Bedard started off the game way off as he gave up two runs in the first inning and threw over 55 pitches in his first two innings. However, he then...

EriK and El Toro

After last night, and even early on today, it looked like this series would be an absolute disaster for the Pirates. Instead, they were able to pick up a win on getaway day and finish their difficult road trip to Atlanta and St. Louis at 3-4. The two big stars today were Erik Bedard and Pedro Alvarez. I’ll start with Bedard. He allowed three doubles in the first to make it 2-0...

When it rains it pours. I hope.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have scored 17 runs in their last two games, lead mostly by a scorching hot Pedro Alvarez. How long can Pedro's hot streak last? Can the Pirates keep this sort of offense clicking for longer than a day or two? Would the team actually be kind of good if they could pull that feat off? Tonight we get even more questions as they relate to AJ Burnett. Through...

GAMEDAY: Pirates at Cardinals

Pirates (10-13) at Cardinals (15-8) 8:15 PM EST–Busch Stadium, St. Louis Here is the Gameday TV: ROOT Sports The Pirates will need to be a lot better on the mound and in the field if they want to turn this series around and defeat the first-place Cardinals. St. Louis leads the Central and currently holds a 5-game advantage over the Bucs, so it’s crucial for them to at...

Pitcher Profile: Lance Lynn for 2012 Fantasy Baseball

Hola Razzballers!  This is my first article for Razzball Baseball and if you’re a Razzball loyalist (and really, why aren’t you?) you may recognize me from the fantasy football side of things last year.  I look forward to summoning you guys (and some gals) some Phillip Humber-esque perfect fantasy advice.  Just not against the Red Sox or Indians. I must admit early on, I...

Waiting for Pedro

I don't know if there's ever been a Pittsburgh Pirate more hyped than Pedro Alvarez and I don't know if there ever will be. He came to the Pirates under a perfect storm of conditions. He was Neal Huntington's first draft pick, he represented the first time that the Pirates had ever drafted the best player regardless of the price tag, the first time they decided to...
