Found September 10, 2012 on This Is Getting Old:
Downright pathetic weekend if you’re a Pittsburgh sports fan.  Steelers played Pirate-like defense and the Pirates played Pirate-like baseball in general. I remember when I buried the Pirates a few weeks ago, they won like two games or something and I had little pang.  Maybe I was wrong.  I was started to get a little [...]

Neal Huntington Should Be Fired

I want to be on record before the final couple of the weeks of the season play out: Neal Huntington should be fired. I hope this team doesn’t lose a game the rest of the season. I hope that the Buccos sweep through the playoffs and win the World Series in four games. I hope that, after winning it all in 2012, the Pirates go on a nearly generation long streak of victorious seasons...

Chad Qualls Activated From the Disabled List

The Pittsburgh Pirates have activated right-hander Chad Qualls from the disabled list. The move now gives the Pirates ten relievers in the bullpen, not counting Joel Hanrahan. Qualls made a rehab appearance for Indianapolis on September 3rd, striking out the side. Since then he’s been throwing side sessions and sim games.

Blaze get routed by Nuts, still lead playoff series 2-1

Monday's Reds game went 14 innings and lasted over five hours. Though their game took about half the time, the Blaze players probably felt like their game was just as long as they got whooped by the Nuts 12-1 in the third game of the best-of-five series. Modesto was in survival mode and did have the advantage of throwing Major League pitcher Jorge De La Rosa on the mound...

His club now has a 9.5 game division lead, which is the largest cushion for any first place team in baseball at the moment. Cincinnati's magic number currently sits at 14.

State College Spikes 2012 Season Recap: Hitters

The Spikes didn’t have many standout young hitting prospects. Most of the younger prospects skipped over State College this year and went directly to West Virginia. Alen Hanson, Gregory Polanco, Jose Osuna, and Willy Garcia all played in the GCL last year, and a few of them stopped briefly in State College at the end of the year before moving on to West Virginia this season. Below...

The Reds dodge some extra-inning bullets and won a fourteen-inning thriller by a score of 3-2 over the Pirates last night at Great American Ball Park. Ryan Ludwick ended the game with a walk-off infield single. It was the fourth consecutive game that manager Dusty Baker gave the start in center field to Chris Heisey over the slumping Drew Stubbs. Heisey homered and his now hitting .287.

Brandon Phillips accuses Pirates of racism

This came to my attention this morning after reading a piece on Getting Blanked by Dustin Parkes, where he noted that Brandon Phillips of the Reds accused a mystery Pirate of racism during Monday's game between the two teams. After the game, Phillips tweeted this out: #RealTalk... Not really surprised by what I heard come outta another player's mouth tonite but...

2012 MLB Postseason Preview: 5 Reasons Why the Cincinnati Reds Could Sneak Up as World Series Champions

If my life depended on picking the 2012 World Series winner I’d be dead yesterday. I seriously have no clue which team looks like the front-runner to win the World Series. Baseball is usually good in that respect – there’s never really ever a clear cut team like the Miami Heat, etc. So as I was perusing the league this weekend, I did a double take at the Cincinnati Reds. The...
