Secondary Ticket Market

I was curious and thought this might be interesting to others. Using, I made a little chart of the secondary market's prices for the cheapest seat to each team's remaining home games. ...


Ice time and goals allowed

Thought this might be interesting. Including Game 3, I tabulated the total ice time (in seconds) for each player at even strength, shorthanded, and on the power play; how many times each player was...

Tangotiger's 2011 Fan Scouting Report


Tangotiger has just released the 2011 ballot for the fans' defensive scouting report. Take a few moments to give some feedback on the Pirates. We tend to be a team that doesn't get a lot of voters.

Andy LaRoche Signs With Oakland


He gets a minor-league deal and non-roster invite to spring training. UPDATE by Charlie: Kevin Kouzmanoff had a poor year starting at third for the A's last year, but he's still a bunch better than LaRoche, so it's hard to see how LaRoche will win much major-league playing time unless he recovers from whatever ailed him last year, or someone gets hurt. I suppose he could stick as a spare infielder, much in the same way he did last year.

Paulino vs. Doumit

I'm annoyed by all this "calling a good game" hooey we keep hearing as justification for playing Paulino, a man who can't hit or play defense and has exhibited no interest in trying to do either,...


Team Promotions

I was bored, so I did a quick count of the number of home games teams have some sort of promotion scheduled this year. I just used's schedules. These count all kinds of promotions, whether...


I Can't Do It

I haven't been bothered by a game like I have been by this one in a long time. Not even That Game last year at PNC. You know the one. Pirates had the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Nobody...
