    What would it take to lock up Andrew McCutchen?

    Andrew McCutchen I was reading an article on Evan Longoria's contract (and similar contracts) at DRaysBay yesterday, which got me thinking about Andrew McCutchen. I think most people would agree that McCutchen will be a star (or at least a well above average player). He possesses elite tools, a performance record to...

    McCutchen Explodes for 3 Dingers as Bucs Roll

    In the midst of so much negative press regarding the dismantling of a last place club, it is nice to know that the Pirates will be getting some good publicity as the result of some on the field play. Rookie Andrew McCutchen hit three homers, drove in six and scored four times...

    Maholm, Astros Defense Help Bucs Past Houston

    Paul Maholm was effective in winning for just the third time in his last 13 starts. He went six innings and gave up two runs on five singles, a double and a pair of walks. The Pirates offense was kick started by Jack Wilson who blasted a two out homer in the...

    McCutchen Rallies Bucs Past Tribe

    Anyone here not impressed by Andrew McCutchen. The Bucs rookie CF was involved in all three Pirate runs - scoring once and driving in two - as the Pirates erased a two run deficit against Cliff Lee. Lee and Ross Ohlendorf each allowed two runs in seven innings of work. Neither got...

    Rockies Sweep Bucs

    It was the McCutchen-Sanchez show early on as Andrew McCutchen and Freddy Sanchez turned a combined four hits into three runs. McCutchen tripled and scored in the first on a Sanchez single. One inning later, it was a two run blast by Sanchez that plated McCutchen. All that damage was done against...

    Bucs Offense Again Anemic

    Jason Marquis came within one out of tossing a complete game. He was more than good enough through 8-2/3 to win, allowing only a solo dinger to Jack Wilson in the 7th before tiring and allowing two runs in the 9th. He gave way to Alan Embree to finish it. Ross Ohlendorf...

    Bucs Fall in 15

    The pitcher scheduled to start Wednesday's game - Jeff Karstens - was forced into duty as the Pirates and Braves went long. Karstens ended it quickly by just one of the five hitters he faced. The winning run scored on a bases loaded grounder from former Bucco David Ross. Atlanta's bullpen blew...

    Team Effort Repels Houston

    It was one of those games where nobody and nothing really stood out. Paul Maholm was good but not great in giving up four runs over seven innings. Those runs came in the form of a Hunter Pence dinger and a couple of RBI producing at bats from Carlos Lee. The Pirates...
