First Pitch: The End of the Jeff Locke Era With the...

It’s hard to believe that the Jeff Locke era with the Pirates has come to an end. It seems like only yesterday that the Pirates traded Nate McLouth to get Locke, Charlie Morton, and Gorkys Hernandez, which led to me covering Locke that summer in Lynchburg. He came into the system at a time when […]

First Pitch: Looking at the Off-Season Roster Decisions For the Pirates

The Pirates have some pretty big decisions to make this off-season, as they try to get back to the playoffs again in 2017 after a year off in 2016. The biggest focus this off-season should be on pitching, especially the starting rotation. They could also use a late inning reliever to pair with the lefties […]

First Pitch: The Pirates Need to Remove Jeff Locke From the...

I have a hard time writing about how Jeff Locke should be removed from the rotation. Locke has been an incredibly frustrating pitcher throughout his career. He shows signs that he’s going to be a reliable MLB starter, and just when you buy in, he does a 180 and struggles. Then, right when you’re about […]

Jeff Locke Struggles Again in Pirates Loss to the Brewers

PITTSBURGH — With several off days in the early part of the second half and several young pitchers with options performing well, the Pirates have plenty of alternatives when it comes to fielding a rotation.
