The 2014 Pittsburgh Pirates’ first half: Not good or bad, but enough of both to be maddening

When the Pirates punted almost every big decision of the off-season, leaving what one could reasonably assume to be a decent amount of cash unspent (you can look at their offers to Josh Johnson, James Loney, and AJ Burnett and guess that they had at least another $12 million to spend this winter, maybe a little bit more), my immediate thought was this: They’re not sure that 2014...

Now and when

For most of the Pirates’ winter, there’s been a question that’s been rattling around in my head. It started when the James Loney and Josh Johnson signings fell through around the winter meetings, it carried through the entire AJ Burnett Saga, and it popped up again with the First Base Fiasco playing out this week. That question is this: What do I, as a fan, want from the Pirates...

Disregard that speculation: Josh Johnson is a Padre

Well that didn't take long: Jerry Crasnick is reporting tonight that Josh Johnson has signed a one-year/$8 million contract with the Padres. Since Johnson previously said that he wanted to sign with the Padres or Giants to be closer to his Las Vegas home, I don't think there's too much to read into here; Johnson wanted to sign closer to home and one of the teams close...

News and notes: Welker, Johnson, Spring Training

Some news and notes as we continue to head in to the hot stove season… The Bucs have been identified as one of the finalists to land free agent pitcher Josh Johnson. The righty is coming off a very poor season, which also included some injury problems. He’s capable of being a front-line starter, though, and is a strong bounce-back candidate for several valid reasons…and the...

Sawchik: Pirates 'finalists' for Josh Johnson

2013 is Neal Huntington's seventh offseason at the helm of the Pirates (!!! I know) and at this point, it's relatively easy to look at a free agent list at the beginning of the off-season and guess who he'll be interested in. Josh Johnson is 6'7", he's capable of throwing hard, he strikes out a ton of hitters, and he's coming off of a mediocre year in...

Game 36: Marlins 6 Pirates 2

As games go, there's not much to talk about from this one, I don't think. The Pirates' offense was predictably inept against Josh Johnson (they scored in the first inning on the strength of an Andrew McCutchen walk and back to back singles Pedro Alvarez and Garrett Jones, but that was mostly it) and Kevin Correia had one terrible inning in the fourth that torpedoed the...

A streak of a different sort

Without going into the ridiculous things from the last few games that nearly caused a blood vessel in my forehead to burst, let's consider the Pirates' current situation: they're on a three-game winning streak, they're 17-18, and they're still in the NL Central and NL wild card races nearly a quarter of the way into the season. Those sorts of things are ultimately...
