    Game 126 Recap: Strong Start by Karstens Wasted

    The Pittsburgh Pirates got a great start from right hander Jeff Karstens tonight in game one of a double header against the Milwaukee Brewers.  However, the Pirates also failed to take advantage of their opportunities at the plate, which combined with a bullpen implosion in the late innings, gave the Brewers an...

    Game 116 Recap: McCutchen Does Everything

    Andrew McCutchen hit a tie breaking homer, scored four times and stole two bases. He almost solved the debt ceiling crisis, too. Not a bad day. He did so in support of Jeff Karstens who whiffed nine and collected his ninth win. Pittsburgh jumped on Jonathan Sanchez in the first inning. Andrew...

    Game 111 Recap: Karstens Bombed as Streak Reaches 8

    I didn’t think when this game began that I’d be researching the last time Jeff Karstens gave up nine earned runs in a game. I also didn’t think about how many Pirates hitters bounced into three double plays in a single game. But really, I should’ve known better. Karstens performance this year...

    Taking Another Look at the Pitching Staff

    About a month ago, the Pittsburgh Pirates had one of the best starting pitching rotations in the league.  They were ranked 4th overall, thanks to an impressive stretch where they got at least six innings and two or fewer runs from each starter every time out.  I looked at how good the...

    Game 101 Recap: Braves Win on Blown Call at Home

    They will be talking about this one for a long, long time. The game itself was long. The game featured many, many blown chances. Ultimately, the game ended on a blown call. Home plate umpire Jerry Meals called Julio Lugo safe on a tag play at home in the 19th inning. He...

    Game 96 Recap: Weak Bats, Shaky Defense Prove Costly

    Cincinnati took advantage of two errors by Chase D’Arnaud and Johnny Cueto was effective again as the Reds managed to take the last game in a three game set. Jeff Karstens was on the losing side despite pitching well once again. The Reds scored their first run of the series in the...

    Game 91 Recap: Bucs in First After Karstens Shutout

    If there is a little extra bounce in the step of Pirates fans everywhere and a little extra swagger in the gaits of Bucco players, I don’t think anyone will hold it against us or them. The Pirates are in first place. It’s mid-July. Jeff Karstens threw a complete game shutout and...

    The Pitching Staff is Good, But Not This Good

    Maholm has been good this year, but he's not this good. One of the big concerns I've had with the makeup of the 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates has been the starting pitching.  The rotation has been the strong point of the team this year.  Pirates' starters have the 8th best ERA in the...
