    Not since the heartbreaking 19-inning loss to the Atlanta Braves in 2011, which began the slide for the Pittsburgh Pirates last season, had the club played a game that lasted this long.  The Bucs have played just four extra-inning games in the 2012 season, the longest lasting 12 frames. That was until...

    First Pitch: Correia Isn’t to Blame, But His Pitching Style is Responsible

    I've talked a lot about Kevin Correia this year, and how I feel the Pittsburgh Pirates should replace him in the starting rotation. I don't have anything against Correia, and I actually think he's a good pitcher for his role. I think that role is a 4th/5th starter in a bad rotation,...

    Pirates Notebook: Correia Adjusts in Spot Start; Presley in Triple-A to Get More At-Bats

    It’s been two weeks since the last time Kevin Correia made a start for Pittsburgh. He was moved into the bullpen when the club acquired Wandy Rodriguez a few days before the trade deadline.

    It’s only been less than two weeks in the big leagues for Starling Marte, but we’ve already seen flashes of exciting plays from the 23-year-old that makes you see his special potential. He showed off his power in his very first pitch in his very first at-bat launching a home run in...

    James McDonald struggled in his first two starts after the All-Star break. He allowed 10 earned runs over 9.2 innings with nine walks to just four strikeouts.
