    Adam LaRoche traded to Red Sox

    Rumor has it that an Adam LaRoche trade is "imminent."  Jen Langosch notes that Larry Corrigan, a special assistant to Neal Huntington, attended the Mariners-Tigers game last night.  Besides that nugget, no details are known.  LaRoche is not in today's lineup. Keep an eye on the PBC Blog and the Twitter feed for additional...

    Bucs Lose Rollercoaster

    From up five early to a 9th inning comeback against Francisco Rodriguez to losing it in the 10th, this one had it all. All except a Pirates win, that is. This one was delayed by rain and it was a make up for an earlier rain out. Striking an irony chord somewhere....

    Bucs Win Comedy of Errors

    Zach Duke allowed just one run in six innings to get his 8th win. He was supported by Adam LaRoche who homered and drove in three runs. But the defense committed three errors. That helped Cleveland score five runs in the 9th (just two earned) off of Steven Jackson to make the...

    Late Rally Falls Short as Tribe Prevails

    The Pirates collected two hits in the first inning and four hits in the 9th. In between they had just two hits. For the first eight innings, they had no runs. But scored four in the 9th. Unfortunately, the Indians scored four early runs off Ian Snell (who lasted just 2-2/3) and...

    Karstens is the Hero in Relief

    Jeff Karstens was yanked from the rotation favor of newly acquired Charlie Morton. Hamstring issues forced Morton from the game after just one inning. In stepped Karstens and he allowed just one run in 4-2/3 to earn the win. Pirate offense was once again scarce. Adam LaRoche drove in a run with...

    Bucs Bullpen Returns the Favor

    Coming into the game, the Washington bullpen was much maligned - a league worst ERA with 14 loses and a league low six saves. Tonight it was the Pirates turn to lose a game late. Coming into the fifth inning, the Pirates had been held hitless and were trailing 3-0. Not only...

    Bucs Come Through in Extras After Bullpen Blows it

    Hey, it is four straight wins. So, not much to complain about. But, here goes... With Matt Capps unavailable due to much recent use (as reported by Dejan Kovacevic in his pre-game notes), Sean Burnett was called on to protect a one run lead in the 9th. It didn't happen. Burnett stranded...

    Ohlendorf, Adam LaRoche Take Series from San Diego

    Ross Ohlendorf settled in after allowing a two run bomb to Adrian Gonzalez in the first inning. He pitched into the 8th and gave way after giving up a pinch hit homer leading off the 8th to Edgar Gonzalez. The Pirates offense worked early off Jake Peavy to erase the 2-0 deficit....

    Bucs Sweep Marlins

    The Pirates have taken the Marlins for three straight games. The offense was powered by the LaRoche brothers. Adam had four hits and three doubles and Andy drove in two runs. Paul Maholm retired the first nine Marlin clubbers before struggling through innings 4-6 by giving up four runs and eight hits....

    Duke Sparkles Again

    Not sure where this has come from. Magic? Joe Kerrigan? Whatever it is, Zach Duke has won back-to-back starts for the first time since June of last year. After that start 6/9/08 vs. Arizona, Duke's record was 4-4. He would go 1-10 the rest of the way. Duke walked two and allowed four hits....
