Two Decades of Pittsburgh Pirates Pitching Fails

With the major league season a little more than halfway over and the midsummer classic behind, the Pittsburgh Pirates have statistically the best pitching staff in the majors. Trust me, I can’t believe I just typed that myself. The Bucs have posted a major’s best 3.07 ERA and opposing hitters are batting just .225. I hope you’re sitting down, the Pirates have a league best...

Merry Gerrit-smas, Hope It's Better Than Bryan-sgiving and Kris-mas

Pirates top prospect and former 2011 1st-overall pick Gerrit Cole debuts tonight against the San Francisco Giants. This is big. Despite the recent, shall we say, lack of success, Gerrit follows only two Pirates 1st-overall picks in the last 15 years. The notorious Bryan Bullington, and Anna Benson's husband Kris. Coincidentally, Gerrit shares more than just that top overall...

Hanshin Tigers batter Ryota Arai calls for time-out, opposing pitcher throws at him (Video)

One of baseball's unwritten rules has to be that when a batter calls for a time-out, the opposing pitcher has to stop his wind-up and not deliver the ball. However, Bryan Bullington of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp decided to not follow that rule in a Nippon Professional baseball game against the Hanshin Tigers. As Tigers batter Ryota Arai calls for time-out during his at-bat...

Hiroshima Carp pitcher Bryan Bullington throws at hitter who asked for timeout

Nothing gets under a pitcher’s skin more than a batter calling time during his windup. Usually nothing comes of the perceived slight, unless you’re Bryan Bullington, ace pitcher for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp and former first overall pick in the 2002 MLB draft, who wasn’t too pleased with Ryota Arai of the Hanshin Tigers when he called time as Bullington was preparing to pitch...

Batter Calls Timeout, Gets Thrown At By Mean Pitcher

The good folks at Bob’s Blitz found one of the better things we have seen in quite some time. The .GIF and video do more justice than we could with words so all you need to know is that the jerk pitcher is Bryan Bullington of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp and the poor batter who attempts to call a timeout is Ryota Arai. The timeout was called a little late and because of that the batter...

Is MLB ruining the amateur draft?

Before this year, the MLB Amateur Draft was a free for all. There were slot recommendations, but that's all they were: recommendations. If you exceeded slot, your only punishment would be a stern talking to by the commissioner's office. Many teams threw the recommendations to the wind, and drafted the best players where they deserved to be taken instead of going with "...

Situation Normal?

Last year the Pirates tried to put an end to my relentless attack of literary low blows. Shortly after the All-Star break they were atop the NL Central and my head was appropriately buried in the sand (not kidding; by the way, it sucks.) But then came Jerry Meals’ blown call and down, down, DOWN came the Pirates, settling into yet another comfortably uncomfortable 90 loss season...

Trade With Pirates Treasure Room: Kershaw Reigns and Other Fun Stuff.

I completed my second swap with Brian of Pirates Treasure Room, who has the most insane Andrew McCutchen collection I've ever seen and a Gerrit Cole PC I'm massively jealous of. I sent Brian a Bryan Bullington on-card rookie auto a while back, and before our trade could be completed our blogging Brian became severely ill. Thankfully, he's all better now, and I'm happy...
