First Pitch: 14 Pirates Questions For the 2014 Off-Season

The 2013 Pittsburgh Pirates off-season was full of the same discussion over and over and over: A.J. Burnett.

First Pitch: No One to Blame For Pirates’ Wild Card Game Loss

Heading into the Wild Card game, there was a lot of debate about whether the Pittsburgh Pirates should have held Gerrit Cole back on Sunday, yielded the division to the St. Louis Cardinals, and saved Cole for the Giants. Cole ended up dominating, but the Pirates lost. Things didn’t go well tonight for Edinson Volquez tonight, and anyone saying Cole should have been the starter is definitely on the right side of things. Clint...
