Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Francisco Giants – Game 107

Alright, sorry I’m late. I was doing something necessary for my mental health, I’m sure you can understand how important that is. So, a sweep of the Vagiants? Why not? Even better than the idea of sweeping the Giants though is the idea that Francisco Liriano, now healthy, is going to go ahead and become that dude he was last season. Imagine if Liriano becomes that Ace type thang...

Game 105: Pirates 5 Giants 0

Over the weekend in Colorado, the Pirates scored two runs combined off of Brett Anderson, Tyler Matzek, and Franklin Morales. That seemed to more or less make official the idea that the Pirates just cannot hit left-handed pitching this year, particularly not while Starling Marte is on the disabled list. The first two games of that series against the woeful Rockies were ugly 8-1 losses...

The Pirates face another lefty

At this point, seeing the Pirates line up against another left-handed pitcher makes me feel like I’m Superman and I’ve been in a room with Kryptonite for a week. With Starling Marte out, Brent Morel will start at third base again. Honestly, I have to keep checking to see if his name is Brett or Brent. I would have never imagined that he’d get two consecutive starts during a...

The evolving Pirate offense

The Pirates’ offensive turnaround this year has been a big topic of discussion lately. You likely know the basics. They’re fourth in the National League in runs scored despite playing in a pitcher-friendly park, their position players have a 110 OPS+, and their on-base percentage of .334 is the best in all of baseball. As you might expect, it’s awfully rare for a National League...

Pirates Injury Update: Starling Marte out of lineup Saturday

Jordy Mercer's RBI double won the game to improved the Pirates to 51-46, third in the National League Central.

The second half climb continues

Last night was a nice win for the Pirates, in the way that it’s always nice when a good team finds a way to beat a bad team. The Pirates probably played closer to poor than they did to well, but Francisco Liriano pulled himself together after two rough innings and the Pirates’ offense strung some hits together against the Rockies’ bullpen, and the Pirates got a win. Liriano’s...

GUEST POST: Colorado Rockies blow great start by De La Rosa, fans should continue to support the players

De La Rosa was great, but the pen and the offense wasn't.BY: CAMERON PARSONSThe Colorado Rockies started the second half of the season on the wrong foot. With plenty of opportunities missed, a good start from Jorge De La Rosa was wasted and the Rockies fell 4-2 to the Pirates.Coming out of the first half of the season, De La Rosa had proven his ace status amongst the Rockies...

Starling Marte goes on bereavement list

The Pirates placed outfielder Starling Marte on the bereavement list Wednesday because of the death or illness of a family member and called up infielder Matt Hague from Class AAA Indianapolis to take his place. Marte must spend at least three days, but no more than seven, on the bereavement list. The Pirates selected the contract of Hague, who was not on the 40-man roster, and...

Tonight’s goal: do better

Look, I can’t spend much more time talking about the bullpen or the Pirates’ record against the non-Cubs teams in the NL Central. The bullpen needs to pitch better in close games that they don’t have a lead in, and the Pirates need to win games against the Cardinals, Cubs, and Reds. That’s it. Starling Marte is not with the team tonight, as he’s headed back to the Dominican...

Game 82: Pirates 5 Mets 2

I will admit that in the early part of this game, my attention was split between the Pirates and the World Cup. For the first few innings, every time I looked up I felt like I saw the Mets hit a deep fly ball to Starling Marte in center field, and so it took me until maybe the fifth inning or so to realize that Edinson Volquez was actually pitching really well this afternoon. In...

Walker in, Tabata out, Marte…?

The Pirates had to make a heavily discussed roster move on Tuesday afternoon to clear a roster spot for Neil Walker, who returned from his DL stint.  The decision was somewhat surprising: outrighting Jose Tabata to Indianapolis. This is an uncommon move (you don’t usually see guys with a long term contract–and as much big league service as Tabata–sent to the minors) so it...

Andrew McCutchen (Photo credit: Keith Allison) The future is bright for the Pittsburgh Pirates outfield.  Andrew McCutchen is the reigning MVP and is adding another incredible season to date.  Starling Marte, who struggled at the plate in April, has picked it up as of late by moving to the two-hole and has added to his supreme defensive skills in left field.  The highly touted...

Brandon Phillips did his best Kent Hrbek impression on Wednesday

Check out this play from Wednesday’s Reds-Pirates game. In the first inning, Starling Marte stole second base cleanly…and Brandon Phillips tagged him while pushing his leg off of the bag! Second base umpire Jerry Layne wagged his finger at Phillips and both Phillips and Marte had a laugh about it, but could you imagine if Marte was called out? The amount of hot takes written...
