This Is Getting Old:

They are 2-4 on the season and have lost both series. St. Louis has outscored the Bucs 34-20 this season. With yesterday’s win the Pirates have not [...]

The Pirates are in St. Louis to finish out this road trip against the Cardinals.
This figures to be an extremely tough series for the Bucs, at least to me. They won’t get to send Burnett or McDonald to the hill (although avoiding Burnett in St. Louis may be a...
A.J. Burnett guided the Pittsburg Prates to a 5-4 triumph over the Phillies yesterday at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. The 35-year-old Burnett, who has gone 9-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 13 starts, managed to become the first Pirates … Continue reading →

AAA Indianapolis | Indianapolis 10 Toledo Mud Hens 5 First off, congratulations to Rudy Owens, Starling Marte, and Jordy Mercer on being selected as the representatives for the Indians in the International League All Star Game. All eyes are now fixated on Starling more than anyone else in the system. As result by Jose Tabata's overall struggles and Alex Presley's inconsistency...
Catcher Rod Barajas returned to the lineup Friday after sitting out three games with a bone bruise on his left knee. Barajas has been masterful in handling one of the best pitching staffs in the National League and has picked things up offensively. Barajas told PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko that he really likes the makeup of this Pirates team.

Tonight’s win was crazy, but it was a win nonetheless. It felt good to take a game in Philly. James McDonald pitched well; not perfectly, but he got the job done. Brad Lincoln was tonight’s savior out of the bullpen. Michael McKenry continued his offensive tear, going 2-4 with 4 RBIs. Offensively, he has more [...]

At the 75 game mark, the Pirates are a game behind the Reds and a half-game ahead of the Cardinals in the NL Central heading into Busch Stadium Mark 3 for a weekend series. This is about as big as baseball gets for a team that hasn't had a winning season since 1992. Unfortunatey for the Buccos, AJ Burnett and James McDonald both pitched to close out the Phillies series, which...
Unfortunately, Rod only played in 2 games this week. One was great, the other not so much. Monday’s 1st-inning injury cut Rod’s week short. Last Friday, June 22, Rod was 2-3 with a run scored. He followed Pedro Alvarez’s leadoff single with a single of his own to center field, and then AJ Burnett came [...]
