    Game 29 Recap: Early Runs Aid McDonald’s Strong Effort

    A first inning tater from Jones set the tone. The Cincinnati Reds have been plagued by giving up first inning runs. Tonight their former ace, Aaron Harang now pitching for San Diego, was troubled by the same problem. Harang gave up a pair of two run bombs in the first inning as...

    Game 26 Recap: Correia Tosses Gem in Denver

    Correia dropped his ERA below 3.00. It was snowing off and on in Colorado last night. That just doesn't seem right this late in April. It didn't stop Kevin Correia from pitching well and the Pirates as a team from holding the Stones scoreless. Correia was pulled with two outs in the...

    Game 24 Recap: McDonald Gets Going

    McDonald picked up his first W on the season. James McDonald tossed six plus innings of shutout baseball and the Pirates offense got just enough as the Pirates blanked San Francisco 2-0.

    Game 23 Recap: Ford’s Speed Costly to Bucs

    Hanrahan took the loss. Giants rookie came into the game with no Major League hits and two career runs. He didn't add any knocks. But he equaled his career total in runs with some daring baserunning which proved to be the difference in the game. Garrett Jones got things started with a...

    Early Look at the 2012 Payroll

    Earlier this week the 2011 40-man roster and payroll page was updated, giving the estimated payroll for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011, based off of the Opening Day roster.  A lot can, and will, change between now and the end of the 2011 regular season, so that payroll figure is far from...

    Spots Opening Up In The Bullpen

    Olson should make the Opening Day roster with Olsen and Beimel hurt. At the start of the off-season, the bullpen looked pretty crowded.  The Pittsburgh Pirates had locks in Joel Hanrahan, Evan Meek, Chris Resop, and Jeff Karstens.  They added Joe Beimel and Jose Veras, and almost immediately proclaimed that each reliever...

    Battle of the Bench and Today’s Pitchers

    Today's spring training game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies allowed us to see all of the players battling for bench spots on the Pirates' roster as well as some interesting pitchers.  As has been reported many times, there are really only 3 bench spots available since RF is a platoon...

    Update On Players Who Are Out Of Options

     Morton is one of a few players who would have to be designated for assignment if he didn't make the Opening Day roster. With a handful of players who are both on the bubble and out of options, the Pirates will be facing some tough roster decisions at the end of...

    2011 Spring Training Battles: Bullpen

    Hanrahan could be announced as the closer this week. Yesterday I reviewed the battle for the fifth starter spot, noting that I saw it as a battle between Charlie Morton and Scott Olsen.  As reader "BLZR" pointed out in the comments, that's pretty much the approach the Pirates will be taking this...
