Found May 01, 2013 on This Is Getting Old:
No history for the Pirates.  No first place either.   Awwww.  Cheer up Panda.  At least we have no Jonathan Sanchez also! I don’t even know what to say.  I’m so damn sick of the Brewers.  Even after Russell Martin caught them stealing signs they just murdered the Pirates. I don’t even want to watch…

Booing John Axford Isn’t Really Wrong (But It Is Pathetic)

(Photo: Mike McGinnis) Listening to yesterday’s Brewers/Pirates game on the radio, it was pretty hard to ignore fans turning on John Axford, who took the loss after giving up four runs in the eighth inning.  Given the circumstances, reports like this one by Adam McCalvy indicate Axford was pretty magnanimous about the whole thing: “Fans are fans,” Axford said. ...

The Pirates’ new starting lineup video is hilarious

The PNC Park jumbotron has introduced the Pirates’ lineup with some strange and cheesy videos in the past (such as this one), but when I saw this new one on Youtube I couldn’t stop laughing: So much awkwardness. Some players (Gaby Sanchez) embraced the silly Saturday Night Live theme, some (Pedro Alvarez and Clint Barmes) clearly wanted nothing to do with it, and some (Wandy...

Francisco Liriano to make debut for Pirates on May 11

Fransisco Liriano is scheduled to make his season debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates on May 11. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle delivered the news to reporters on Wednesday. Liriano signed a one year deal with the Pirates in the offseason but has been working his way back from a fractured right arm. The pitcher reportedly injured himself while trying to scare his kids on Christmas morning...

Extra work pays dividends for Brewers' Weeks

MILWAUKEE -- Rickie Weeks was frustrated, so he picked up the phone and called Brewers hitting coach Johnny Narron. He doesn't usually like to get early work in unless it's after a day off, but Weeks met Narron at the park at 12:30 and went to work in the cage and then on the field during batting practice. It's hard to know if his diligent efforts paid off Tuesday night...

Game 27 Preview: Pirates at Brewers

Pirates (15-11) at Brewers (13-11) 8:10 PM–Miller Park, Milwaukee MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs will look to get rid of the Miller Park demons tonight as they take on the Brewers in game two of this series. The recent trend for the Pirates has been losing the first game of a series and coming back to win it, so hopefully that continues. I think even one win in the next two...

Brewers activate INF Bianchi from DL

The Milwaukee Brewers have activated infielder Jeff Bianchi from the 15-day disabled list. The Brewers made the move Thursday. A day earlier, they sent outfielder Khris Davis to Triple-A Nashville. The 25-year-old Bianchi started the season on the disabled list after dealing with a case of bursitis in his left hip. During a 15-game rehab assignment with Double-A Huntsville and...

Minor League Schedule: 5/2/13

In Altoona this morning, Jameson Taillon will get the start, trying to get back on track after two subpar outings. Today in Indianapolis, Phil Irwin will make his first appearance since his major league debut on April 14th against the Reds. Bradenton’s game Tuesday night was suspended in the seventh inning with the score tied 4-4 and Brevard County batting. They finished the game...

Real Thing that Happened: Pirates win in Milwaukee

In what has almost become a trend, the Pirates used late-game heroics to win a game. What has not been a trend is Pittsburgh winning at Miller Park, which thanks to a four-run eighth inning they did on Wednesday with a 6-4 win against the Brewers. Pedro Alvarez hit his fifth home run of the season in Wednesday’s win against the Brewers. Photo credit: David Hague With the Pirates...

Brewers enjoy unusual offensive outburst

MILWAUKEE -- A day after getting shutdown by one of the best pitchers in baseball, the Milwaukee Brewers busted out offensively against a pitcher that was on a pretty good roll himself. The Brewers jumped on Pirates left-hander Wandy Rodriguez for five runs in the first inning and put on an offensive show from there, blasting five home runs and three triples en route to a 10-4 victory...

Gonzalezs short-term memory has served him well

MILWAUKEE -- The game of baseball offers quite a few moments that are bizarre and sometimes just plain unlucky. Michael Gonzalez's relief pitching debut with the Brewers on April 3 certainly qualified as both. After Gonzalez walked the leadoff hitter, a perfect bunt single followed putting two on with nobody out. Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez followed with a broken bat...

Game 26: Brewers 10 Pirates 4

I want to say that nothing went right in this game, but that's not true in the strictest sense. The Pirates took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning and then nothing went right from there. Wandy Rodriguez couldn't find the strike zone in the first inning and when he had a chance to get out of the inning with the Pirates still only down 2-1, Clint Barmes booted a double...

Game 28: Pirates 6 Brewers 4

This game looked like it was going to be a disaster. Jeanmar Gomez struggled through the first inning with some awful defense behind him, but somehow escaped with only a 1-0 deficit. Pedro Alvarez erased that quickly with one swing of his bat, but then Gomez served up back-to-back homers to Carlos Gomez and Yuniesky Betancourt (the second time in this series they've gone back...

Lulz Of The Week: Carlos Gomez does Neo, Jean Segura naps, Anthony Rendon winks
