Nice series victory against the Colorado Rockies. Tons of positives in this series. Clint Barmes, Pedro Alvarez, Garrett Jones, James McDonald and Charlie Morton all had really good outings. 25- 30 homers for Pedro is a definite possibility if he gets regular playing time. I really dislike four game sets. Especially on the road. It [...]

The Pittsburgh Pirates have waited patiently for nearly two years for third baseman Pedro Alvarez to showcase all the tools that made him the second overall pick of the 2008 draft.
Their patience might finally be paying off. Following a horrific start, Alvarez's bat is showing signs of life. He hit homers in both games of a doubleheader split with Colorado on Wednesday to raise...
Garrett Jones had three hits, including a two-run homer, as the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Colorado, 5-1 on Wednesday, he had an RBI single in the Bucs 6-1 loss at Atlanta on Friday. In his last 10 games Jones is batting .293 with three home runs and seven RBI. Jones told PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko that he hopes the Pirates offensive woes are coming to an end.
Andrew McCutchen perceives his strength as being attributed to his long locks…and has no plans on cutting them.
Pittsburgh Pirates star outfielder ANDREW MCCUTCHEN is in the midst of a hair crush with his dreadlocks. In the Steel City, McCutchen’s dreads have become sort of a cult icon for the center fielder and he doesn’t intend on cutting them anytime soon. So that means...
With 14 games under his belt in 2012, Pedro Alvarez has one of the weirdest stat lines you're ever likely to see:

Welp, the Pirates gave up more than five runs finally. Now hopefully they can actually start scoring more than five. Let me just state unequivocally that I think hitting Clint Barmes in the two hole is about as dumb as possible. Knock it off Hurdle. In the same vain, batting Rod Barajas at this point is basically [...]
I didn't see any of last night's game, but it looks like AJ Burnett's second start went about as well as his first did and that the bullpen fell apart behind him, but that that probably didn't matter anyway because the offense was limited to one run. So the five run streak is over for the pitching staff, but not for the offense, which is about what I expected from...
BINGHAMTON, NY - Second baseman Josh Rodriguez has been in the minor leagues for over six seasons, but he has every intention of moving forward. After a brief seven-game stint with the Pittsburgh Pirates last season, the Houston native is in his first season with the Binghamton Mets.
