No Pirate All-Star starters….yet

The All Star fan vote totals were revealed Sunday night, and no Pirates made the cut…not even Andrew McCutchen: The final NL voting results are in for the #ASG: — MLB Communications (@MLB_PR) July 5, 2015 Kind of a shame that nobody from the NL’s second-best team could crack the lineup, although Cutch is really the only one with a good case. It’s...

Cutch gets mad, Bucs get win

It was an eventful (and rainy) day at the ballpark on Saturday. The headline was Andrew McCutchen being hit by yet another high and tight pitch, knocking him out of the game and prompting some noteworthy comments: “Maybe I need to go drop-kick a pitcher.” Pirates win, but Cutch smarting after another HBP: — Stephen J. Nesbitt...

Pirates star McCutchen leaves game with elbow injury

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen left Saturday's game against Atlanta after getting hit in the left elbow with a pitch.

How Andrew McCutchen Saved His Season

It’s possible Andrew McCutchen hasn’t been the hottest hitter in baseball, but at the very least, there haven’t been many much hotter. What makes the year notable, though, is that — as late as early May — McCutchen’s OPS was rattling around in the .500s. McCutchen didn’t go from good to red-hot. He went from bad […]

Michael Keaton owns Andrew McCutchen heckler

  Don’t worry, Andrew McCutchen. Batman has your back.   The Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder was the target of a heckler during the Buccos’ game against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field on Friday, but luckily, he had the support of a Pirates fan seated near the dugout. And that Pirates fan just happened to be actor Michael Keaton. Cutch had the situation under...

Game 52: Pirates 7 Giants 4 (also: Andrew McCutchen is on fire)

Sorry for the late recap here. I’m sure you can guess the drill on this one: last night’s game was long and ended late, I was way too tired to write one then, and then I had a bunch of things at work this morning that needed taken care of before I could sit down at the computer and write this one up. I think this game is worth recapping, though, for one main reason: it’s maybe...

Andrew McCutchen got robbed twice, but it didn’t matter

During Monday night’s Pirates-Giants game at AT&T Park, Andrew McCutchen could have had a huge night. In both the third and fifth innings, the 2013 NL MVP came up to the plate with the bases loaded and one out. A hit in either situation would have likely plated at least two runs with the speedy Josh Harrison on second and Gregory Polanco on first. But instead, McCutchen was...

Andrew McCutchen Gives Young Fans Batting Gloves; Kids Go Crazy (Video)

Andrew McCutchen might have made a couple of his biggest fans’ lives.

WATCH: Andrew McCutchen makes young Pirates fans' day

One of the best moments from MLB on Saturday did not happen during an actual game. No, this one occurred right after one finished. After Mark Melancon closed out a 5-2 win for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the San Diego Padres, center fielder Andrew McCutchen located some fans in the outfield seats and ran over...Read More
