Very interesting piece on Sanchez

I know most of you on here don't think Bob Smizik is all that great, but he really does make an excellenct point in his blog talking about the all-too-much resting of Freddy Sanchez. I tend to...

Why Ryan Braun is a punk...

Well, Ryan Braun does it again. Braun hit a go-ahead  two-run HR in the bottom of the eighth inning Friday night to put the Beermakers ahead for good in a 3-2 win over the Cubs at Miller Park. In...

How long until Russell is fired?

Simple question: How much time do they give JR? I don't mean this year (only his second year), but it's going to happen eventually because the Pirates aren't going to win anytime soon. The Pirates...

Who will be the next great SEC QB?

Matt Stafford is now employed by the Detroit Lions. Everybody knows that Jevan Snead and Tim Tebow are current stars in the SEC (Lord, if you don't know about Tebow, you've been living under a rock...

Smizik: Monroe deserves his chance in RF

Hey everybody. I know I'm going to catch some flak for posting this because I have been wanting Craig Monroe, or really anybody else, to get some starts in RF over putrid Brandon Moss for over two...

McLouth is back in the lineup

Nate McLouth is apparently healthy enough to go as he is back in his usual 3-hole in the lineup for tonight's game against the Cincinnati Reds. John Russell said he was going to put McLouth through...

An interesting tidbit for those of you defending Moss

I was reading the Pirates' page on the Post-Gazette website today. I came across today's (Thursday) Q&A transcript with Dejan Kovacevic. I have been saying for over a week now that it's ridiculous...

Alvarez all about drama

Pedro Alvarez continues to make the dramatics a large part of his game early on in his professional baseball career. Alvarez led off the seventh inning of a tie game with a solo HR to put the...

Pearce's time up?

Hello everyone. It's me again, thelumberco. I've been pondering this for a while and I have to ask it: Is Steve Pearce's time in the Pirates' organization all but done? This guy won Minor League...

The Nats are bringing up Kip Wells!!

Haha! This is hilarious. The Nationals, who are off to a dismal 1-10 start to begin the young season, are so desperate that they are calling up Kip Wells, the former Bucco pitcher, from Triple-A...

Alvarez hits HR in 9th to tie the game

Pedro Alvarez continues to do what Alvarez does: hit and impress! With Lynchburg trailing by a run in the top of the 9th against Wilmington, Pedro hit a solo HR to send the game to extra innings...

Pirates lose, LaRoche hits

The Pirates couldn't muster anything against journeyman Mike Hampton tonight as the Buccos fell 4-1 to the Houston Astros. Not all was lost, however, as Adam LaRoche went 2-for-4 with a HR. His...

Where are the black uniforms?

I'm ready for the Pirates to bust out the new black tops. We just had a 7-game road trip and wore gray on gray everyday. What's up with that? Bust out the black! It looks sharp! What are they...

McLouth/Doumit: Should fans start worrying?

I'm not going to look too much into it (who are we, Yankee fans?), but Nate McLouth and Ryan Doumit have combined for three hits in the first four games of the season. Not exactly the start that I,...

Time to ship Adam LaRoche off!

Ok, I've had enough of watching this guy! He went 0-5 tonight. Four of those at-bats, he had runners in scoring position. This guy can't deliver a big hit the first half of the year to save his...

Why did Russell put Yates in?!?

Why in the world was Yates pitching the 9th? We've got a 4-run lead. Capps pitches the 9th, not Yates! Yates doesn't get an out and finally, Capps gets in and closes it out. I have to wonder what...

Predictions for Duke's start tonight

How do ya'll think Zach Duke will fare against Albert and Co. tonight? My prediction: Duke has looked better this spring, but I just don't see it carrying over to the regular season. He's way too...

Why is Nyjer Morgan our starting LF?

What in the world has Morgan done to deserve a starting spot?!? If I'm missing something on him, please tell me. I've heard people say, "Well, he has been a pretty good minor league player his...
