• Game #8 vs. St. Louis

    PNC Park | 7:05 | Gorzelanny vs. Randy Keisler | Box Cardinals 3, Pirates 2. You'll talk about Salomon Torres, but in reality tonight's game shouldn't have even come to that.

  • A Pirates Photo Blog: Home Opener vs. St. Louis

    I didn't take as many quality photos as I would've liked to yesterday.

  • Tribe Splits Doubleheader with Columbus

    The Indianapolis Indians split the doubleheader with the Columbus Clippers this afternoon, but won the series two games to one. Both games were pitching duels, with the temperatures were barely above freezing -- 35 degrees for game one and 37 degrees for game two. There was only an intermittent breeze...

  • Oliver Perez – The Next Jason Schmidt?

    If one were to ask a Pirates fan to make a list of the worst trades in team history, there is little doubt that the 2001 disposal of Jason Schmidt to the San Francisco Giants would appear high on the list. On July 30th, 2001, The Pirates traded Schmidt and outfielder John...
