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...

Back to back big ones

All that stuff I talked about on Friday, about how great it feels to see the Pirates pull out late, close games on the road against a good team? Same thing again on Saturday. Just tremendous stuff – we really have seen the Pirates turn it around. Remember when they were winless in extra innings for the first month or so of the season? Now they’re 9-7 in extras, and this was their...

The Greatest Game in PNC Park History(?)

I feel pretty comfortable saying that at this point. Go ahead an add the “regular season” caveat if you want – that’s fine. But when you add up the implications, the energy in the ballpark, the crazy amount of ridiculous things that happened, and the epic finish….it does not get any better (for July). Like, I mean, c’mon. A.J. Burnett hit a freaking home run!  That happened...

Keep grinding

The Cardinals have already lost the first game of their double-header with the Cubs today, which means that no matter what happens in their nightcap, the Pirates can make up at least a half-game on the Cards with a win against the Padres tonight. My opinion is that they should do that. Francisco Liriano starts for the Bucs tonight. With Starling Marte out and Josh Harrison on the...

Family motivates Pirates' Cervelli

Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli plays – and lives his life with – a bunch of energy, a trait that’s catching on with his new teammates. “I think Cervy may even have more energy than Russ had,” Chris Stewart told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Doesn't matter the situation, he's looking for the positive. He's always got a smile.” So where does all that energy come from...

Marte's RBI single in 13th lifts Pirates past Phillies

  Just about everyone got to share in this shutout. Starling Marte's single in the bottom of the 13th drove in Chris Stewart and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 Friday night. The Phillies were kept scoreless by seven pitchers, marking the first time since at least 1914 -- as far back as STATS could check -- for that many Pittsburgh relievers to combine...

Marte's RBI single in 13th lifts Pirates past Phillies, 1-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) Starling Marte's single in the bottom of the 13th drove in Chris Stewart and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 Friday night. Exactly six hours after the scheduled 7:05 p.m. first pitch, Marte delivered a two-out chopper up the middle off of Dustin McGowan (1-2). Backup catcher Stewart came around from second, beating Ben Revere's throw from...

Stewart, Cole developing strong chemistry

Chris Stewart isn't Gerrit Cole's personal catcher, but he has caught Cole in each of his past five starts. “I know what he’s thinking out there, he knows what I’m thinking,” Stewart told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I know how to get the best out of him, when to settle him down at times.” While Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has said that Francisco Cervelli will also...

Game 46: Pirates 5 Marlins 2

This is the difference a week makes: When Christian Yelich hit his seventh inning home run to put the Marlins ahead of the Pirates 2-0, I thought to myself, “I don’t think that’s going to be enough.” The Pirates hadn’t done much at the plate to that point, but knowing the way that they’ve been hitting and the shape the Marlins’ bullpen is in, I wasn’t really worried...

Pirates adjusting to new pace-of-play rules

Swept the snakes

If you think back to last year, the Pirates had some serious trouble putting away sweeps. They didn’t get one until sweeping Philly early July, despite numerous chances after winning the first two games of a series. They also did not put together a five game win streak until their red-hot September that vaulted them into a playoff spot. Well, now the Pirates already have two...

Have to wake up bats

First off, a bit of news: Chris Stewart’s disabled list stint is over, so he’s back with the Pirates and Tony Sanchez is headed back to Indianapolis. I strongly suspect that Sanchez will be back before long, but I suppose we’ll see. For now, there wasn’t much that Sanchez was going to be able to do to stay with the big league club. I suppose we’ll see how this goes from...

Stewart up, Sanchez down

We have recalled C Chris Stewart from his rehab assign & reinstated him from the 15-day DL. Tony Sanchez has been optioned to @indyindians — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) April 17, 2015 For some reason, a bunch of fans are up in arms about this move. I don’t get it. Well, actually I do get it. Tony Sanchez is a fun and likable guy, yes. He had a great spring (which you...

Tony Sanchez < 500

Let’s begin here: Chris Stewart has a hamstring injury that will likely cause him to open the 2015 season on the disabled list. That means that Sanchez, who’s crushing the ball this spring (10-for-19 with two doubles and two homers) and has apparently shown some improvement defensively, will probably open the season as Francisco Cervelli’s primary backup. I don’t think that...

Chris Stewart < 500

If you’ve been paying much attention to the evolution of the sabermetric-leaning public’s understanding of catcher framing for the last couple years, you know that it feels like more of a positive feedback loop than anything: every study that comes out seems to amplify the effect of good framing catchers even further. Last month, Jonathan Judge, Harry Pavlidis, and Dan Brooks...

Stewart and Pirates agree to $1,225,000

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pirates catcher Chris Stewart has agreed to a $1,225,000, one-year contract, the first player to reach a deal among 12 Pittsburgh players who filed for arbitration this week. Stewart made $1 million last year, when he hit a career-high .294 in 49 games in his first season with the Pirates. The 32-year-old has a .228 career average in parts of eight big league seasons...

Pirates Bench is Well Constructed

The Pirates every day lineup, the starting rotation, and the bullpen will look much the same in 2015 as it did last season. Although Catcher Russell Martin was lost to free agent, as was starting pitcher Edinson Volquez, the rest of the team returns mostly intact. GM Neal Huntington filled the holes by trading RP Justin Wilson to the Yankees for C Francisco Cervelli. A.J. Burnett...

Pirates Offseason Notes and Potential Non-Tender Candidates

The first natural reaction to the end of every Pittsburgh Pirates season always seems to be, “Ahh these guys are going to suck next year.” Yeah, it’s true the Pirates don’t have a ton of flashy players outside of Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen but they are still a very good team. I remind you that they’ve gotten tons of production and value out of guys like Harrison...

It turns out the Pirates have an afternoon game today (and it’s not going well)

About ten minutes ago, I walked into lab and immediately remembered that the Pirates have an afternoon game today. The Reds were in the process of scoring three runs in the first inning when I turned it on, so that’s where we are right now: the Reds are up 3-0 after a weird review at the plate in which I’m still not sure if they were reviewing whether Devin Mesoraco was safe...
