    Is the 2007 Draft Better Than We Thought?

    We all know that the Pirates made a mistake when they passed over Matt Wieters in the 2007 draft, but for the people who follow the draft closely, the rest of the draft looked even worse with a bunch of overdrafts and roster fillers. Now it should be noted that just four years later...

    Game 66 Recap: Karstens Lifts Bucs Up to .500

    The Pirates moved back up to .500 with a nail biting, 1-0 victory over Houston. Jeff Karstens played the hero by tossing 6-2/3 innings of shutout baseball, dropping his ERA to less than 3.00.
