    Jack and Freddy: A win-win situation

    Please excuse the rambling and lack of organization in this post. With only a 30-minute lunch break, I just started typing away. Now that I have my excuses out of the way, on with the show.   In a surprising twist, the Pirates are negotiating contract extensions with Jack Wilson and Freddy...

    Ohlendorf Frustrates Cubs on Momentous Day

    So why was this a momentous day? Two reasons: 1. The 100th anniversary of the opening of Forbes Field 2. For the second straight year the Pirates have traded away 2/3 of their starting outfield. Ross Ohlendorf picked up his 7th win by tossing seven shutout innings to overshadow (at least temporarily)...

    Duke's Arm, Sanchez' Slam Propel Pirates

    Mark it down: Zach Duke will make the All-Star team this year. Duke won his seventh game against four defeats by going eight and allowing just three runs. The Pirates jumped on Tigers starter Armando Galarraga with four second inning runs. He was pulled in the third after giving up consecutive hits...

    Duke Outduels Santana

    That headline is a shocker. Dewey defeats Truman. Man bites dog. Things you don't expect to see in print. But it happened. Zach Duke allowed 8 singles and one run in seven innings against NYM. He was touched in the fifth when the Mets put together two singles, a sac bunt and...

    Hampton Continues Pirates Offensive Woes

    Mike Hampton gave up three hits and one run over seven dominant innings to give the Astros the series. The Pirates lone run came in the form of a Nate McLouth dinger leading off the bottom of the first inning. After that, the Pirates didn't advance a runner past first base. Paul...

    Sanchez' 6 Hits Paces Offensive Outburst

    Freddy Sanchez had six hits in six trips to the plate, knocked in three and scored four times to pace a season high 18 hit attack. Andy LaRoche and Jason Jaramillo each had three hits. Andy LaRoche drove in two runs and Nate McLouth contributed the go ahead RBI with a two...

    Long Balls Doom Bucs

    The Pirates took an early lead, fell behind quickly, tied it up late and lost it in regulation. The Bucco offense plated two in the first in support of Jeff Karstens. It might've been more, but Freddy Sanchez was thrown out at home on a single from Adam LaRoche. But, Karstens quickly allowed...

    Duke Dominate as Bucs Beat Friars

    Is it wrong to get excited when Zach Duke pitches like I did in 2005? He went 8-1/3 inning, allowing just one run, five singles, a triple and a pair of walks. He picked up his third win and dropped his ERA to 2.65. The Pirates strung together a bunch of hits...

    Karstens Topples Marlins

    Tough to argue with the result as the Pirates moved two games over .500 on the year. Jeff Karstens was good over 6 plus. The Pirates put up a single tally in each of the first three innings and the pitching made it hold up. Karstens scattered two singles, a double and...
