Game 125: Pirates 7 Marlins 2

The Pirates haven’t had quite as much trouble with lefties as they did early in the season, but it was a bit of a relief to watch them jump all over Chris Narveson one night after being shut down by Brad Hand. The Pirates hung six on Narveson in a hurry in the second inning in this one: Michael Morse lead off the inning with a double, Neil Walker doubled him in, Chris Stewart...

Cutch crushes, Pirates dance, Marlin fans knit

This game can be summed up with the following three videos: Andrew McCutchen killed a baseball. (Seriously, I think only Giancarlo Stanton is allowed to go up there.) A bunch of other Pirates joined him in feasting on Chris Narveson, as they quickly put seven on the board and cruised the rest of the way – you could say they were having a pretty good time out there. (Yes, the...

The most promising thing about Polanco right now

The funny thing is, Andrew McCutchen and Starling Marte are so good the Pirates would be in the conversation for baseball’s best outfield no matter who the third guy was. But more often than not, the third guy has been Gregory Polanco, and Polanco came with enormous hype. He’s had his good days and bad days, his good moods and bad moods, but these days Polanco’s on a tear....

Gregory Polanco’s hot second half, and the confluence of future and present

With two outs in the third inning last night, something happened that Pirate fans have been dreaming about for three years. Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte both laced hard-hit singles off of Marlin starter Tom Koehler, then Andrew McCutchen brought them home with a double. The Pirates didn’t look back en route to a 5-2 win. Back in the last year of the Pirates’ Dark Age, it...

Game 123: Pirates 5 Marlins 2

It’s only the Marlins, but JA Happ’s Pirate resurgence continued tonight with six shutout innings, scattering four hits, striking out six, and issuing just one walk. Happ actually gave up half of those hits in the first inning, and he only allowed one base runner after the third. Happ’s now only allowed one run in his last three starts (17 1/3 innings), striking out 16, walking...

Pittsburgh Pirates at Miami Marlins game preview

The last time Pittsburgh and Miami met, the Pirates were in the midst of an impressive stretch of pitching performances that resulted in seven straight wins. They aren't quite as hot entering Monday night's series opener, but the scuffling Marlins could help the Pirates reach a water mark not seen since Barry Bonds' last year with the club. Pittsburgh (74-48) is a win away from being...

McCutchen, Alvarez play long ball, Liriano pitches Pirates past Giants

PITTSBURGH — Clint Hurdle doesn't dwell on things. What's next is what's important, a mantra the Pittsburgh Pirates manager has pounded home repeatedly since the day he arrived in 2010. More than four years later, it has become fully ingrained on a team that just keeps rolling along. Andrew McCutchen hit his 19th homer and Pedro Alvarez made up for some shaky defense by adding...

Game 122: Pirates 5 Giants 2

Sorry for the lack of posts this weekend; I was out of town for a wedding until this morning, and so I missed the bulk of this series. As it turns out, this is probably the Pirates’ biggest series victory of the year, non-St. Louis Cardinals division, as taking three of four from the Giants puts the Pirates nine games up on the Giants, who are currently the first team out of the...

How the Pittsburgh Pirates Rebuilt a Losing Franchise into a Contentder

In 1979, the Pittsburgh Pirates won the MLB World Series in seven games over the Baltimore Orioles, making Willie Stargell both National League MVP and World Series MVP. After 1979, it would be 34 years before the Pirates won another postseason series. That victory came just two seasons ago, in 2013, and at the time, that win seemed like the start of a renaissance for a once-proud...

Game 112: Pirates 10 Cardinals 5

It wasn’t as easy as it should’ve been and it wasn’t all that pretty, but the Pirates managed to escape St. Louis last night with their first win since July of 2014. To be perfectly honest, my main concern with last night was Francisco Liriano. That being said, seeing the Pirates explode for seven first inning runs and destroy Lance Lynn with a barrage of hits starting with...

Andrew McCutchen is a historically great hitter

Andrew McCutchen is a terrific defender. Kevin Kiermaier is excellent with the glove. So were Jim Edmonds, Willie Mays, and still Adrian Beltre. The aforementioned trio sold their careers off good glovework, not to mention decades of all-star caliber hitting. McCutchen plays on both sides of the glove, and he’s a pretty excellent player. The graph below displays the offensive statistics...
