    Farewell to Jack and Freddy

    I am excited about the future of the Pirates. After yesterday's flurry of deals, the team has traded away virtually every starting position player from 18 months ago.

    9th Inning Rally Puts Bucs on Top

    The Pirates compiled 12 hits and just one run through the first seven innings off of Mark Buehrle. The game changed after he left. Octavio Dotel surrendered a solo homer to Eric Hinske in the 8th. The following inning, Bobby Jenks retired the first two hitters and then gave up a game...
