Found June 13, 2012 on Raise the Jolly Roger!:
The Pirates played a terrible game all around and dropped their second in a row to the Orioles, this time by a 7-1 blowout score. Kevin Corriea was bad: 6 innings, 10 hits, 5 runs (4 earned), only 1 strikeout, 1 walk, and 1 homer. We’ve seen him get away with some mediocre outings that could have been a lot worse lately, but that wasn’t the case today. Baltimore took advantage of a poor effort from the Bucs’ SP for the second straight night and took control of the game early. The O’s started Jake Arrieta in place of the injured Brian Matusz, and before the game Pirates fans probably saw that as a good thing. Arrieta came in with a 2-8 record and a 6.32 ERA. He had lost his last four starts and last six decisions. But, as we see so often when the Bucs face a pitcher they should be able to make noise against, Arrieta found himself. He struck out a career-high 9 batters in 7 innings, and danced around two bases-loaded threats to allow just one run. Horrible night for the offense. Alex ...

Pirates agree to terms with 45th overall pick Barrett Barnes

#TexasTech CF Barrett Barnes received a $1 million signing bonus from the #Pirates as 45th overall pick in #MLBDraft — Scott Lacefield (@ScottLacefield) June 14, 2012   This news is a whole lot better than pretty much anything else we’ve been hearing about the Pirates in the past couple days. Barnes, an OF out of Texas Tech, was rated as the 41st best prospect heading into this...

Neil Walker’s big day not enough in 8-6 loss to O’s

Final: Orioles 8, Pirates 6 WP: Wei-Yin Chen (6-3, 3.68 ERA) LP: Brad Lincoln (3-2, 3.15 ERA) SV: Jim Johnson (19, 1.26 ERA) The Pirates had quite an offensive outburst, but it wasn’t enough to match Adam Jones and the Orioles Tuesday night. Brad Lincoln had some trouble getting behind hitters. When he did that he threw pitches over the middle of the plate. Those pitches over the...

Erik Bedard rocked as Orioles complete sweep of Bucs

Final: Orioles 12, Pirates 6 WP: Tommy Hunter (3-3, 5.58 ERA) LP: Erik Bedard (4-7, 4.36 ERA) The Orioles scored 10 runs in this one before the Pirates even got a single player on base. That is not a recipe for success. The Pirates’ offense eventually woke up and scored six runs on ten hits, but it was way too late as this one was put out of reach early on. Erik Bedard gave up...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cleveland Indians – Game 63

First it’s with a heavy heart I acknowledge that apparently Root Sports has parted ways with Lacee Collins.  She got hit pretty hard, often on this blog, but my god did Pittsburgh fans eat her alive.  Hopefully she lands on her feet or heels or sneakers or whatever her preferred choice in footwear may be.

GAMEDAY: Pirates at Orioles

Pirates (32-28) at Orioles (35-26) 7:05 PM EST–Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore Here is the MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT Sports During their recent stretch of of solid play, the Pirates have still had their fair share of ugly games. They’ve done a great job of “showering well” (as Clint Hurdle says) and shaking it off the next day, though, and that’s the goal tonight...

Bye bye Baltimore

Following the surprising and very upsetting news of Charlie Morton‘s Tommy John surgery, the Bucs could have used a nice lift from Erik Bedard and company tonight in Baltimore. They didn’t get it, and were blown out to complete a really awful series. Bedard was bad from the start in his former home ballpark. The O’s struck for four runs in the first inning…the dagger being...

Game 63: Orioles 12, Pirates 5

I was always a big Erik Bedard fan - his stuff when he was on was fantastic, and the 15 strike-out game he had against Texas was probably the best pitched game I've ever seen live (batter were literally going back to the dugout shaking their heads). It would have been nice to see him do well tonight (though not quite well enough to win), and it wouldn't have been terribly...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Baltimore Orioles – Game 62

This is going about exactly as I expected.  One guy who is a very questionable starter and another who is in no way a starter going back to back against a really good team is a recipe for disaster. #Hurdled And this has been one of my main criticisms with Clint Hurdle and the Pirates [...]

Arrieta gets back on track in spot start

On Wednesday morning, Jake Arrieta was a reliever -- demoted from the Baltimore Orioles' rotation last week. The former Opening Day starter was trying to turn his season around. By Wednesday night, he was the man, having thrown seven innings as an emergency starter in place of injured lefty Brian Matusz. Arrieta cruised into the middle innings and battled through the seventh...

Great little video here from Benstonium. It’s a quick spin-off of the Moneyball trailer, but for the 2012 Pirates instead. Really cool: ©2012 Raise the Jolly Roger. All Rights Reserved..
