Game 112: Marlins 6 Pirates 3

I suppose I have to say something about this game, right? If the Pirates are going to win many games with Andrew McCutchen on the shelf, everyone else on the club is going to have to be at their best. In the eighth inning tonight, Josh Harrison booted an inning ending double play, Justin Wilson gave up a single and two walks after entering with runners on first and second and one...

Today in Tribe History: July 18, 2011

The Indians sweep a doubleheader from the Twins in sweltering weather at Target Field, 5 – 2, and 6 – 3. Fausto Carmona wins the nitecap in his return from the disabled list after David Huff, just called up from the minors, earns the win in the opener with 7 shutout innings in an emergency spot start. The Indians like what they see from Huff enough to send down Jeanmar Gomez...

The trouble with the bullpen

If you want to look at the first two games of this Pirates/Cardinals series with absolutely zero emotion and only with cold logic, the conclusion that you would probably draw is this: the Pirates have continued to play well this week, but a combination of bad luck and a thin bullpen has cost them two games that could have been wins. The Pirates play a lot of close games: three of...

Cubs 7, Pirates 5

Wandy Rodriguez had a pretty poor start and lost to the Cubs for the second time in as many starts. Jeanmar Gomez had a sloppy relief outing as well. That was unfortunate, because the Pirates ended up making a game of it with 5 solo homers, but that wasn’t enough. Tonight, the #Pirates hit five home runs and lost for the first time since August 4, 2007 against the #Reds http:/...

First Pitch: Maybe the Pirates Pitching Staff Won’t Regress

Is Jeff Locke’s lack of regression due to the infield shifts? (Photo Credit: David Hague) We’ve talked a lot this year about regression. Jeff Locke is a regression candidate. Jeanmar Gomez is a regression candidate. The entire Pirates’ pitching staff has combined to lead the league in BABIP, and it’s not close. You could say the same for strand rates, although the Braves...

First Pitch: What Does a Starter Do Between Starts?

There was some discussion on the site today about the decision, with questions as to why Gomez and Locke couldn’t throw. The end result of all of this is that Locke was moved...
