The Pittsburgh Pirates will not be making any changes at the upper levels of the front office despite a second straight late season collapse. Pirates president Frank Coonelly said Wednesday that general manager Neal Huntington and assistant GMs Kyle Stark and Greg Smith will return for the 2013 season. Manager Clint Hurdle will also return. Huntington has two years remaining on a three-year contract extension he signed last September that also includes a club option for 2015. Hurdle will enter the final season of the three-year contract he received when he was hired as manager in September 2010, unless the Pirates extend his deal in the offseason. The Pirates have gone 6-18 in September. They are also 13-32 since moving a season-high 16 games over .500 at 63-47 on Aug. 8. The Pirates have gone 33-73 during August and September the last two seasons. The Pirates were eliminated from playoff contention with their 6-0 loss to the Mets at New York on Wednesday night. With a 76-...

The Pittsburgh Pirates needed a strong start from Kevin Correia on Thursday for their final road game of the 2012 season. Facing a Cy Young Award candidate in New York’s R.A. Dickey, and their 20th consecutive losing season on the line, Correia gave the club the chance to notch their 77th win through his first four frames. But a four-run fifth...
The Pittsburgh Pirates and their fans haven’t had much to get excited about the second half of the season. Much like last year after starting out strong the Pirates have faded away and out of the playoff race.
However if it’s any sort of very small consolation, Travis Snider made what could be considered the catch of the year robbing New York’s Mike Baxter of the home run.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Travis Snider made a "Catch of the Year" candidate on Thursday afternoon against the New York Mets at Citi Field.
Watch Snider scale the wall in Spider-Man-esque fashion to rob the Mets' Mike Baxter of a home run:

The Pirates lost yet again on Thursday as their hopes at salvaging a .500 season continue to go down the drain, but hey, at least the game will make SportsCenter. It was notable for two reasons: RA Dickey’s 20th win and an absolutely incredible catch by Travis Snider.
The Pirates actually got off to a good start against Dickey, scoring twice in the second inning. Garrett Jones...
After today’s loss to the New York Mets, there is absolutely no margin for error if the Pittsburgh Pirates hope to end their 19-year losing streak. If the Pirates truly want to crush their fans hearts in style, they should win four games then lose the last two and finish just below the mark. That seems to be how they do things around here.Look at the fact they got to 16 games over...
Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder Travis Snider's catch is the talk of the sports world for his outer worldly robbery of NY Mets outfielder Mike Baxter's potential tying home run today. Here are all 4...

The Pirates struck early tonight, Pedro Alvarez and Garrett Jones each homered, and the pitching was just good enough to give Wandy Rodriguez and the Pirates a 10-6 win over the Mets. Wandy had a very rough start to the game, giving up 3 consecutive hits to start off the 1st inning, 2 of them [...]

This could be the play of the year. In the second inning of today's Pirates-Mets game, Mike Baxter of the Mets bashed a Kevin Correia pitch deep to right field that looked like a surefire home run. Pittsburgh right fielder Travis Snider continued his run of amazing defense by climbing the right field fence, hanging on, reaching his glove...
National League batting leader Andrew McCutchen came out of Pittsburgh's game against the New York Mets in the seventh inning Thursday after appearing to hurt a leg while making a diving catch.
McCutchen trapped a soft fly into short center by Daniel Murphy and threw to second to force Ruben Tejada, who began the play on first base and wasn't sure whether the ball was caught...
The Pirates and Mets play again tonight, as the Pirates gun for their second straight win, which is apparently something that baseball teams are capable of doing from time to time. Jeremy Hefner is starting for the Mets. You may remember him as that guy that was on the Pirates' 40-man roster for no reason anyone could understand for two weeks this winter, then was gone. He...
