Record 4-5 Bank Account: -275 Nats at Pirates - Strasburg and Harper take on the Pirates and a very solid YTD pitcher in Kevin Correia. The Pirates are a value today as a big home dog at +150. Correia is 1-2 with a respectable 3.38 ERA. The tricky part is the Nats have lost three straight so this appears to favor the Nats which I can't say it doesn't. I am looking at this game strickly on value as I believe the Pirates are extremely under valued in this game and at +150 it is to hard to pass up. TV's Take: Pirates +150/ Bet $50 to win $75 Cleveland at Boston - Many of you probably have snatched up Derek Lowe for your fantasy teams as he has pitched better than expected. However, those of you with Beckett have to be disappointed with a 2-3 record and a 4.45 ERA. This game screams over to me as Lowe brings a 5.37 ERA on the road to Fenway. The Red Sox and Indians both are pretty good hitting teams. The Red Sox had been on a good Over streak before they choked last nigh...

Pirates P Erik Bedard pulled due to back spasms

Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard left Wednesday night's game against Washington in the second inning due to back spasms. Bedard grimaced after his third pitch to Washington's Adam LaRoche in the top of the second. He spent several moments stretching for manager Clint Hurdle before being replaced by Brad Lincoln. Bedard threw just eight pitches in all. ...

Game 30: Pirates 4 Nationals 2

When a team signs a player to a six-year/$52 million contract, you hope that there are a number of reasons why they thought that player deserved the money. I spent some time this winter listing the reasons why I think Andrew McCutchen is worth that kind of money to the Pirates, but really, you'd only have to watch Wednesday night's game to understand the sort of effect he...

James McDonald is only half of the story

Grant Brisbee writes about the worst trade of the last five years at SB Nation today, and it might surprise you to see that he chose the Octavio Dotel for James McDonald deal from the 2010 trade deadline. You can read the whole thing for his reasons.I've actually been thinking about this trade (and others) quite a bit lately as I turn the Pirates' offensive struggles over...

Game 31: Nationals 4 Pirates 2

If the theme of Tuesday's recap was the impossible complexity of baseball and how it creates games that can be both possible and implausible in one fell stroke, the lesson from the last game of this Pirates/Nats series is that sometimes baseball is incredibly easy to figure out. In Wednesday's game, Kevin Correia pitched a great game on the Kevin Correia scale of possible...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 31

First off let me just end my condolences to Joel Hanrahan on the loss of his grandmother. Last night was exactly the type of game I wouldn’t expect the Pirates to win.  Usually.  Even though I was worried about Bedard though for some reason it just seemed like the Pirates would pull it out.  Probably [...]

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 30

Before we get started I would be doing you, my loyal readers, a disservice if I didn’t at least bring this up. Couldn’t happen to a bigger group of scumbags. So last night’s baseball game was kinda exciting huh?  How about that freaking Rod Barajas jacking the game winner?  I will take some credit for [...]
