Found September 23, 2013 on This Is Getting Old:
I feel like Chubbs trying to teach Happy Gilmore how to putt. “This time, don’t even look at the hole, just aim for a spot, six inches in front of the ball” That’s all I want the Pirates to do against the lousy Chicago Cubs.  The Cubs suck.  Just aim for a spot six inches…

Chicago Cubs weekly review: another bad week

The Chicago Cubs had a golden opportunity to make some noise against division rival Milwaukee and to stymie the Atlanta Braves in their quest to become the National League East division champions.  The Cubs failed on all fronts. The club had a chance to make some movement in the division to at least save themselves from the NL Central division cellar by defeating the Brewers in...

Pirates Rumors: Pittsburgh will do everything they can to re-sign A.J. Burnett

In the offseason, Pirates starting pitcher A.J. Burnett will decide whether or not he is going to retire. He will contemplate retiring this offseason, but if he decides to play one more season, he will definitely draw interest from his current team. Pittsburgh Pirates general manager Neal Huntington says that they will do "everything in our power" to re-sign starting...

Game 156 Preview: Pirates vs. Reds

Reds (88-67) at Pirates (89-66) 1:35 PM–PNC Park, Pittsburgh MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT It’s the final regular season home game of the year for the Pirates, and that’s usually a sad day. Today, though, it’s just one more huge game, and there’s a very good chance that the Bucs will return to PNC for a postseason home game, although that’s no guarantee (I put the odds at...

Pirates playoff bound after win

The Pittsburgh Pirates are headed to the playoffs for the first time in 21 years, clinching at least a National League wild card Monday night when they beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 and the Washington Nationals lost to St. Louis. It will be Pittsburgh's first trip to the postseason since Barry Bonds, Jim Leyland and Co. won three straight NL East titles from 1990-92. Bonds then...

Cubs calmly come back for 3-1 victory over Braves

The Cubs caught a glimpse of Pedro Strop in the closer role Saturday as he struck out the side in the ninth inning to preserve a 3-1 victory over the Braves at Wrigley Field. A day after veteran closer Kevin Gregg complained about his initial perception of Cubs management's lack of respect for him Strop complimented Gregg for helping him develop. "We have been teammates...

Cubs watch Pirates clinch playoff berth

All the Chicago Cubs had to do the past two days was look across the field and take note. They saw a postseason staple celebrate. Then, it was a longtime loser's turn. The Pittsburgh Pirates are headed to the playoffs for the first time in 21 years, clinching at least a National League wild card Monday night when they beat Chicago 2-1 and the Washington Nationals lost to St...

Game 156: Reds 11 Pirates 3

I understand letting Jeff Locke start today. That sounds crazy in hindsight, but I really do. Locke has looked marginally better since returning from his demotion, and he turned in a gem against the Cubs last weekend. Brandon Cumpton, Kris Johnson, and Stolmy Pimentel have all been used pretty sparingly since joining the Pirates after Indianapolis's season ended. Using a rusty...

Game 158: Pirates 8 Cubs 2

If you were at all concerned that the Pirates were going to be hung over on Tuesday after celebrating their wild card clinching win on Monday night, those notions were put to rest fairly early in this one. After going down in order in the first inning, the Pirates scored three times in the second inning thanks to a Marlon Byrd single, a Gaby Sanchez walk, a Pedro Alvarez RBI double...

mlboffseason: oldtimefamilybaseball: I recently bought a “Me and the Boys Boppin” tee to support the Pittsburgh Pirates in their battle for a 163rd game. When it arrived and I put it on, I felt a strange power surge through me, one that imbued me with the quickness of the cobra and the strength of one thousand mortal men. I’m guessing it was the particular blend of polyester...

Pirates beat Cubs, 8-2, take one-game lead on Reds

Lest the Pirates enjoy their celebration too much after clinching a playoff spot Monday night Andrew McCutchen established a policy. We'll party tonight their MVP candidate center fielder said according to manager Clint Hurdle. Tomorrow we play. Sporting a regular lineup the Pirates beat the Chicago Cubs 8-2 at Wrigley Field Tuesday night. They knocked around Cubs starter Chris...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 156

I hope last night’s performance put your mind at ease a bit.  I certainly understand the nerves, this has been such a long time coming, but it’s such a longshot at this point that the Pirates miss the playoffs.  This has just been a crazy time.  Something we aren’t used to as baseball fans. Anyway,…
