    If you had money on “Shane Greene and Chris Capuano would go back-to-back shutting down the Detroit Tigers in August, keeping the Yankees in the playoff picture,” the casino management would like to have a word with you.

    Rick Renteria Cubs

    It took a while, but last night we got our first manager ejection of the season when Cubs skipper Rick Renteria was tossed by umpire Jeff Nelson for arguing about a 1-2 pitch that was called a ball.

  17. Pirates re-sign Clint Barmes

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Clint Barmes has had back-to-back terrible seasons for the Pirates, hitting a combined .221 with a .579 OPS in 252 games, but Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that Pittsburgh has re-signed the 35-year-old shortstop for $2 million. Obviously the Pirates like Barmes for his defense, which has always been strong, although at age 35 that’s…

    Oct 9, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Division Series - Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    It was the bats that failed the Pirates in the end. Starling Marte finished the NLDS 1-for-19 with one walk and a hit by pitch from the leadoff spot. Neil Walker, right behind him batting second, was 0-for-19 with two walks. It’s tough to generate much offense when your top two hitters reach base a…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    The Pirates put a bunch of runners on base in the bottom of the sixth inning and in doing so, chased Cardinals starter Joe Kelly. Andrew McCutchen led off the inning with a walk.

  23. Gerrit Cole shines in postseason debut as Pirates win Game 2

    Oct 4, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

    Gerrit Cole

    Partly because they were worried about his innings count, the Pirates seriously considered putting Gerrit Cole into the bullpen for the postseason. It’s a very good thing they didn’t. Cole pitched six innings of one-run ball and singled in the first run of the game as the Pirates beat the Cardinals 7-1 to even up…
