    Stat Line of the Night — 10/1/2013 — Russell Martin

    For a long time the Pittsburgh Pirates have been the laughing stock of Major League Baseball, but on Tuesday they had the opportunity to put that shameful past behind them and record their first playoff victory since 1992.  They would capitalize on their opportunity thanks in large part to the bat of their Canadian catcher, […]

    Grown Man Steamrolls Kid for Souvenir Baseball at Pirates Game (Video)

    People will do just about anything to get their hands on a souvenir baseball at a Major League Baseball game.  They’ll leap into bushes, put their children in harm’s way, dive over railings, or even steamroll a child if it means grabbing even the most meaningless ball that makes its way into the stands during […]

    Despite owning the second-best record in the National League (53-36) heading into last night’s contest against the Oakland Athletics, the Pittsburgh Pirates still somehow ranked just 26th out of 30 MLB teams in runs scored.  So, what gives?  How can a team be so successful with such an inept offense? The Answer to that question […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/31/12 — A.J. Burnett

    Approximately one month prior to the start of the 2012 MLB season, many of us were getting quite the laugh out of Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett.  Not only was he coming off consecutive poor seasons with the New York Yankees (a combined 21-26 record and an ERA over 5.00), but he also managed to […]

    The Pittsburgh Pirates are 27-13 at home this season, and with an overall record of 46-36, they currently sit atop the NL Central, two games up on the Cincinnati Reds.  Who would have thought, right? Their latest victory came last night, as Pirates pitcher Jeff Karstens put forth a dominating effort that saw him go […]

    When the 2012 MLB season kicked off in April, no one expected to see the Pittsburgh Pirates competing for top spot in the National League Central Division.  Fast forward three months later to last night.  Not only did the Pirates own an impressive 42-36 record, but they were also just one game back of the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night – 5/9/12 – Andrew McCutchen

    The Pittsburgh Pirates may not be known for being one of the best teams in the league – the team finished last night tied for third in the National League Central – but they have one of the best center fielders in Andrew McCutchen.  The Pirates have been an above average team at their home […]

    Being back in the National League for the first time since 2005, A.J. Burnett will need to get his groove back at the plate.  If his performance during yesterday’s batting practice at the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training session was any indication, that may take a while for the 35-year-old starting pitcher. With all eyes on […]

    A.J. Burnett Is Putting Daniel McCutchen’s Kid Through College

    A.J. Burnett doesn’t seem to care all that much if the front of his jersey reads “Yankees” or “Pirates.”  As long as the back reads “34,” he’s happy. Unfortunately for him, obtaining No. 34 in a Pirates uniform isn’t going to be cheap for the 35-year-old starting pitcher, as the number is already taken by […]
