    Pirates Turn Triple Play, Only Need Two Outs (Video)

    I guess sometimes you can never be too sure.  Take the Pittsburgh Pirates, for example, who needed only two more outs during the bottom of the eighth inning during last night’s game against the Houston Astros, but they decided to get three, just to be safe. Although the Pirates defense may have showed a great […]

    James McDonald Records An Out, Gives Himself A Gatorade Shower (Video)

    Gatorade showers have become synonymous with championship celebrations, but it appears as though Pittsburgh Pirates starter James McDonald is trying to start a new trend. After recording the final out in the seventh inning, McDonald’s was given high-fives all around in the dugout, as his night on the mound was over.  He handed his bullpen […]

    The 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates For Dummies

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have been irrelevant since they last won the division title in 1992.  If you asked even the biggest baseball fan to name you all 30 Major League Baseball teams, they would probably only give you 29 and forget that the Pirates even existed.  If you asked someone to name you a player […]

    The 9 Most Humiliating Losing Streaks in Sports

    Cleveland may not be the most tortured sports city, but they sure do get a lot of press for it: Major League, the Browns, and of course, the Cavs sans-LeBron. Last night’s loss marked the Cavs’ 26th straight loss, tying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for most consecutive losses by a professional team in North America. […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/21/10 – Pedro Alvarez

    Pedro Alvarez was the second overall pick in the 2008 MLB draft. Apparently, he likes that number 2. Alvarez crushed two home runs for the second game in a row as the Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 15-3 Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. Alvarez may have pushed the Brewers closer to trading some of their big […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/18/10 – Paul Maholm

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have not had much to be happy about this year, or even the last 15 years for the matter.  They are one of the perennial losers in baseball as each season they sell off the few good young stars they have and seem to be in a perpetual rebuilding mode.  Yesterday, however, […]

    Total Pro Sports – It is not often we get to say this, but the Pittsburgh Pirates actually looked good last night during their game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The fact that the Dodgers have already clinched a playoff spot makes you question just how worthy the Pirates are of such praises, but that […]

    Total Pro Sports – Luckily Tim Lincecum was on the mound for the San Francisco Giants, preventing any sort of increased controversy over this blown call.  Whether the incredible barehanded catch made by the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Delwyn Young will be considered for catch of the year nominations remains in question after second base umpire Dale […]

    Pirates Fans Are Really Interested In Ian Snell’s Penis Size

    Total Pro Sports – After fifteen stars thus far this season Ian Snell has posted a 2-8 record, and ERA of 5.36, and a total of 52 strikeouts.  Disappointing numbers for the 27-year-old member of the Pittsburgh Pirates, but rather than wonder what is wrong with Snell, who has since been sent to Triple-A, the […]
