    Pirates Notebook: Presley Joins at the One-Third Mark

    One-third of the season down, two-thirds to go. The Pirates open up their second third of the season (as confusing as that term looks) against the Cincinnati Reds, a team nearly as hot as the Bucs are. Pittsburgh is 16-4 in its last 20 games and leads Cincinnati (14-6 in last 20)...

    First Pitch: Are Jeanmar Gomez and Jeff Locke a Product of a Successful System?

    Last night I finished my article about Jeanmar Gomez with a thought -- should there be a debate between Jeanmar Gomez and Jeff Locke for the final rotation spot when Charlie Morton returns? On one side you've got Locke, who has a 2.45 ERA in 58.2 innings, but has a 4.30 xFIP....

    Pirates Notebook: Hurdle Not Too Worried About Reliever Innings

    The performance of the bullpen has played a role in the the Pirates’ winning ways, especially given the many close games they have won.

    First Pitch: Do the Pirates Need to Make Any Trades This Year?

    Earlier this week Jon Morosi of Fox Sports wrote that the Pirates needed to add some depth at the trade deadline, especially for their over-worked bullpen. It's probably too early to talk about deadline strategies, since the deadline is over two months away, and most trades don't start happening until late June....

    Pirates Notebook: Snider’s Slam Swing Sustains Strong Start

    Maybe Brad Lincoln hits a pinch-hit home run if you give him a chance. Travis Snider did so to lead the Pirates to a 5-4 victory Tuesday, all a part of a successful 2013 campaign with the Pirates after being swapped for Lincoln. His approach has been strong this season: swinging at...
