Found May 15, 2012 on North Side Notch:
I was contacted by Topps the other day to help them out in a promotion that they are doing revolving around their new iPhone/iPad app, Topps Pennant.

Will Brad Lincoln's bullpen success translate into a start?

With Erik Bedard out until at least Wednesday with his back spasms, Brad Lincoln will get a spot start for the Pirates in Miami tonight. Lincoln's been pretty impressive in a handful of relief appearances this year; in 14 1/3 innings, he has 16 strikeouts and held the opposition to just nine hits, giving him a 0.62 ERA and a FIP of 2.91. Lincoln's struggled with missing bats...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 37

#Correia4Bullpen No rest for your Buccos.  They obviously slept with whoever makes the schedules significant other.  No rest traveling from Pittsburgh to Florida to Washington to Detroit back to Pittsburgh?  Seems fair on top of the hardest schedule in baseball.  You know how I feel about fairness though. First Pitch: 7:05 PM EST Where to [...]

Marlins hope to bounce back against Pirates

Tune into FOX Sports Florida at 6:30 p.m. to watch the Miami Marlins take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Miami Marlins' lengthy winning streak against the Pittsburgh Pirates is over, but they could have the right man on the mound to avoid a two-game sweep. Josh Johnson is still looking for his first victory in nearly 13 months, but he's dominated the light-hitting Pirates...

Poor Offensive Free Agents Hurting the Bucs Again

Seeing free agent signings fall flat is nothing new to the Pittsburgh Pirates.  After all, this franchise has endured the likes of Adam Laroche, Jeromy Burnitz, Joe Randa, Raul Mondesi and, of course, Derek Bell.  While Clint Barmes's poor play hasn't reached the point where it could be considered a "saga", I still believe it belongs in the conversation of worst...

Pirates Grab Series Opener

In the first of a two game series, the Pittsburgh Pirates took Monday’s game over the Miami Marlins by a final score of 3-2.   The loss prevented the Marlins from reaching three games over .500, something they have yet to do this season.   This result also means Miami will be unable to win a fourth consecutive series as the best they can hope for now is a series split. Anibal...
