First Pitch: McCutchen Wasn’t the Pirate That Deserved a Gold Glove

My tweet tonight immediately after Andrew McCutchen won a gold glove: Andrew McCutchen hits his way to his first career Gold Glove. It received several retweets, which I can only assume is other people mocking what has become of the Gold Glove award. The Gold Glove award is supposed to recognize defense. Unfortunately that defense is only recognized if a player has strong offense...

Pirates Outright Daniel McCutchen, Jeff Clement, and Eric Fryer

The Pittsburgh Pirates have outrighted Daniel McCutchen, Jeff Clement, and Eric Fryer to Triple-A Indianapolis. We previously heard that Clement and Fryer had been designated for assignment when the team created room for the waiver claims of Chad Beck and Ali Solis. This is the first we’ve heard that McCutchen was removed from the 40-man roster. Fryer has already elected free agency...

Pittsburgh Pirates 2012 Season Recap: Relief Pitchers

The Pirates bullpen continued to be a strength for Pittsburgh again during the 2012 season. The 2011 bullpen finished with a 3.76 ERA, and were even better this year. The ‘pen finished with a combined 3.36 ERA — which finished ranked seventh in the National League (11th in the Majors). In the first half of the season, the relievers sported an impressive 2.59 mark.

Pittsburgh Pirates September Callups Preview

As September 1st approaches, the Pirates organization is currently in a position unlike they have seen in the past. The club sits eight games over .500 and three games back of St. Louis for the second Wild Card Spot. When looking at which players to bring up to join the club in Pittsburgh, instead of just bringing up prospects to take a look at them, they could still possibly be...

A lot of roster moves and the Brewers

The Pirates were pretty busy for a Friday afternoon in August today; they sent Daniel McCutchen back down to Triple-A and brought Jordy Mercer back from paternity leave (this brings the roster back to 13 position players and 12 pitchers, which makes sense given that the Pirates were both off yesterday and will be off again next Thursday), they sent Yamaico Navarro down to Triple...

Seriously, what is happening in the bullpen?

After last night's bullpen debacle, Clint Hurdle talked to the press about his weird bullpen management (you can find some of the quotes on Bill Brink's twitter account and some in his game recap). They were mostly insane and infuriating; his reasoning for not using Joel Hanrahan with Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin due up in the tenth was, "then it's Daniel for...

First Pitch: Free Bryan Morris

Yesterday I wondered why the Pirates didn’t seem to trust their prospects. Rather than giving a start to one of Kyle McPherson or Justin Wilson, the Pirates went with Kevin Correia, who had pitched the day before. Today the Pirates sent down McPherson and Wilson in order to activate Chad Qualls and bring up Daniel McCutchen. Those weren’t bad moves to make. McPherson might have...

Pirates nullify late heroics with bullpen stupidity

The Pirates got some seriously dramatic ninth-inning heroics from Garrett Jones and Andrew McCutchen to avoid another frustrating loss to the Padres. It turns out that they just delayed it, as the Padres walked off in the tenth thanks to a series of maddening decisions by the Bucs. Jones should have been the hero in this one. He hit two game-tying homers in the hardest stadium in...

Pirates Notebook: Garrett Jones Has Been a Key to the Pirates’ Season

Garrett Jones hit two homers tonight. — Image Credit: Mark Olson Garrett Jones has been huge for the Pirates all season, but his big swings of the bat on Tuesday night in San Diego gave the team a chance to battle back and win. Jones entered game action having gone 48-for-151 (.318 avg ) with 10 doubles, two triples, nine home runs and 35 RBI in his last 43 games. He belted out...

Qualls returns, McCutchen up, Wilson and McPherson down

The Pirates shuffled their bullpen again this afternoon, reinstating Chad Qualls from the bereavement list and calling up Daniel McCutchen from Indianapolis. Justin Wilson and Kyle McPherson–both of whom impressed in their major league debuts last night–were sent back to Indianapolis. I don’t like these moves. I don’t think Qualls should be around at all, and I’d prefer...
