And Here Are the Pitchers

     I did not try to mince out whether someone will be a Number 3, 4, or 5 starter even though I know that there are statistical criteria that show the averages of each slot.  Since I’m...

Top o' the Morning, Start o' the Season Charts

Welcome to the “Start of the Season” charts!  If you haven’t seen these before, they are a cheat sheet for the casual fan.  The charts present a snapshot of the Pirates’ starters, next...

About Those "Bad" Huntington Trades

So, a few days ago, Dejan K expressed displeasure (in hindsight) about some of Neal Huntingdon's trades and the failure to build up the farm system faster.  WTM rightly pointed out that the P...

Any Interest in a Fantasy League?

Or maybe its "another" fantasy league, as I haven't seen any other posts to set one up this year.  A lot of other SB Nation sites have friendly leagues among the faithful, and I have a spare...

Doumit better be packed

When the article starts out "Two weeks into spring training, a couple of teams are already looking to fill holes at catcher" I'm thinking, "I wonder what uniform Ryan D will be wearing in a few weeks...."

Bucs Split Split-Squad Games

Couldn't listen to either one (cursed webmeister), but was following on Gameday intermittently while doing work.  I thought the highlight was going to be Eric Frye pitching a pretty good inning...

Where Do You Get Your Pirates Fix?

The pitchers and catchers aren't in camp yet, the biggest free agents are signed, and the biggest surprise that could happen between now and the start of the season is Anna Benson coming out of...

1 (Littlefield) v. 29 (The Other Teams)

Recently, a fanpost tried to show statistically that Neal Huntingdon had done no better with the Pirates farm system than Dave Littlefield.  I wondered about how NH's drafts have compared to DL's...

The American Association Years, 1883-1886

                After writing about the Alleghenys’ 1882 season, I planned to introduce long-suffering Pirates fans to the franchise’s historical tradition of winning. ...

Happy New Year, Part Deux....

Here are the pitchers.  Interestingly, the Pirates webpage lists McDonald as our #1 starter.  I’m not buying this until Maholm is traded – so long as a player is pitching well, the honor of...

New Year, New Charts

Happy New Years!!  Maybe I should have waited to post updated charts, but as everyone has noted, its a slow time for Bucs fans.  If you’re new here and don’t know what info is in each...

Your 1882 Pittsburgh Alleghenys

Can Ryan Doumit be Traded?

Ryan Doumit will be 30 years old at the start of the 2011 season.  He has career averages of .268/.332/.438 but drops off significantly as a right-handed hitter.  He's had a history of injuries...

Rate the Pirates' Winter Meeting So Far.

Most importantly, next week at 8:00 MLB TV is showing Game 7 with limited commercial interruption. I'm taking leave from work to get sure I get home in time to see this.  I trust someone will have...

Pirates "plan" to be players at 2010 Winter Meetings,

which led to my immediate response, "what you plan and what actually happens ain't ever been exactly similar." Here's a link to the person who said that.... http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080301065046/firefly/images/d/d0/Jayne.jpg I'll be in my bunk.

Help for the non-braniac Pirates fans

Just in case you're reading all the comments and can't keep up w/the local brains (WTM, Vlad, Charlie, BucsfaninCA, Cocktails, and others) who know every pirate player, their age, their options left, and when we lose control over them by heart, here are the cheat sheets. Of couse, as slow as the winter meetings have been, we bloody well don't need them yet. Here's the pitchers: http://www.bucsdugout.com/2010/11/3/1792743/and-here-are-the-pitchers-with-footnotes

An Uneducated Pirates Critic

The author basically says that Clint Hurdle just took the worst job in America. Feel free to stop over to this sight and leave a scathing comment, although because that website is a high-falutin' political site, I believe they read/monitor/approve (for plagiarism, threats, etc.) the comments before it will post.

What's up with Nyjer??

If you haven't seen it, check out MLB.TV or ESPN for the brawl triggered by Nyjer. Has he forgotten that he's playing baseball, not hockey?  A quick summary....

Pirates Trade Bixler

For cash considerations, no less. Nutting is so cheap, he'd probably sell his own mother for "cash considerations." All together now, "I AM THROUGH WITH THIS TEAM!!" The serious point to take from this, if any, is that before NH took over, Brian B was probably our best back-up infielder and possible our only MLB-ready replacement for Jack Wilson. Never forget how weak our system was.
