Pittsburgh Pirates: It’s About to Get Interesting

Pittsburgh Pirates: It’s About to Get Interesting isportswebDespite being only 4 games under .500, Pirates’ fans sense something catastrophic is brewing. 1.  Bob Smizik- one of the only Pittsburgh sports writers apparently unfearful of speaking negatively about the Pirates- hammered the team’s farm system, arguging that it’s far more hype than substance.  It’s hard...

Pirates designate OF McLouth for assignment

The Pirates on Friday designated outfielder Nate McLouth for assignment, and recalled outfielder Matt Hague from Triple-A Indianapolis. McLouth, signed as a free agent on Dec. 7, hit just .140 with Pittsburgh, scoring four runs while driving in two more in 57 at-bats. Hague began the season with the Pirates, going 1-for-9 with two RBIs in five games before being optioned April...

Nate McLouth DFA’d, Matt Hague recalled

(via Twitter) Hooray! This won’t turn around the Pirates’ offensive woes, of course, but everyone was growing tiresome of seeing Nate on the team. Hague was not hitting particularly well in Indianapolis, but certainly will be a much better  option as a pinch-hitter than McLouth was. ©2012 Raise the Jolly Roger. All Rights Reserved..

Nate McLouth is gone, the Cubs are in town

Sorry to have fallen off the face of the Earth the last couple of days; I've been working like a maniac trying to put together a talk for a conference next week and there just aren't hours in the day sometimes. The Pirates DFA'd Nate McLouth today, which pretty much anyone anywhere could've seen coming, and replaced him with Matt Hague. Hague probably won't help...

Pirates 1, Cubs 0

A.J. Burnett and four relievers worked out of trouble all game and the Pittsburgh Pirates sent the Chicago Cubs to their 10th straight loss with a 1-0 victory on Friday night. Burnett (3-2) gave up six hits, struck out six and walked two over 5 1-3 innings and the National League's best bullpen made it stand up as the Pirates extended Chicago starter Ryan Dempster's misery...

Paul Maholm is stalking me

So, I'm in Pittsburgh for 24 hours, going to the Pirates game tonight AND PAUL MAHOLM IS STILL PITCHING EVEN THOUGH HE'S NOT A PIRATE ANYMORE. Kevin Correia is pitching for the Pirates, which ... is awesome. First pitch is at 7:10, because it's a FOX game.  

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 45

It’s very rare I can combine things I really like. This time I knocked it out of the park. I love wrestling, CM Punk, Frank Sinatra, and of course the Pirates. So I just knew I had to include that! Hopefully the Pirates used their day off to LEARN HOW TO HIT A BASEBALL LIKE [...]

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 46

It kind of sucks that it takes a shutout to win these games, but hey, a win is a win.  I’ll take em as they come. One run ballgames though? Tonight’s game will be a “National” game on Fox. There you have it.  Pittsburgh’s typical market for the most part won’t even get the game. [...]
