    If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

  10. Pirates send top prospect Gregory Polanco to the minors

    Mar 14, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Gregory Polanco Pirates

    Gregory Polanco was always a long shot to make the Pirates out of spring training and today the team officially ruled him out, optioning the 22-year-old top prospect to the minors among the latest batch of roster cuts. Polanco was impressive in camp, but has just 70 games of experience above Single-A and wasn’t especially…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v San Diego Padres

    Hey man, it happens: Travis Snider‘s toe is doing well, but another minor scrape will keep him from throwing for a day or two. Snider cut a finger on his left hand while chopping a sweet potato and has a bandage on the tip of the finger. There are way worse things with which to injure…

    Sep 22, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Reds brought the lumber today against Pirates starter Jeff Locke. Locke, an All-Star, entered today’s start with a 5.43 ERA since the break. It didn’t improve. The Reds tagged Locke for five runs in the top of the first. After the Reds loaded the bases with one out, Jay Bruce laced a bases-clearing double…

  14. Reds come back in ninth, beat Pirates in 10

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Jordy Mercer

    A Jordy Mercer error on a routine grounder to shortstop opened the door for the Reds to score three runs in the ninth, and Joey Votto hit a go-ahead homer in the 10th as Cincinnati won in Pittsburgh 6-5 on Friday. The result leaves the two teams with identical 88-66 records behind the soon-to-be 90-64…

    Jon Lester

    It’s cool and crisp here in America’s Heartland and there were some games last night that felt like the playoffs. Can we please just skip September and move straight on into October? Would anyone object to this? Red Sox 2, Tigers 1: An ALCS preview? Jon Lester outduels Max Scherzer in a tight game with…

    Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune has the scoop: Looking to upgrade in right field, the Pirates are studying deals for Nate Schierholtz and Alex Rios. It is possible that they’ll make a move sooner rather than later, as they are tied for the NL Central lead while last in OPS at the position (slash line…

    Jose Tabata Getty

    Jose Tabata is back from the disabled list after missing the past six weeks with an oblique injury. To make room for him on the roster the Pirates demoted yesterday’s spot starter, Brandon Cumpton, to Triple-A. Andrew McCutchen and Starling Marte obviously aren’t going anywhere in the Pirates’ outfield, so any playing time Tabata receives…

  18. Russell Martin is starting in right field for the Pirates

    Jun 4, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Russell Martin

    Not to be outdone by the Yankees using career-long first baseman Lyle Overbay in right field, the Pirates have catcher Russell Martin in right field tonight against the Braves. In fairness Martin isn’t a typical catcher in that he’s a good athlete with some speed who’s played 18 games at third base in the majors.…

    Jun 2, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    aroldis chapman getty

    Dusty Baker is one of many managers across baseball who utilizes his bullpen according to the save rule, which means that the closer doesn’t enter the game until his team has a lead between one and three runs in the ninth inning. In this afternoon’s game against the Pirates, the Reds entered the bottom of…

    Wilin Rosario

    Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: One of four games to require ten frames last night. This from the AP gamer: Reliever Matt Reynolds tried to outthink his former teammate, guess what pitch Wilin Rosario would be looking for and throw the opposite. Only, Rosario knew Reynolds was trying to get inside his head, so … Long story short, Rosario spent the last…

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers 10, Tigers 4: So much for pitching porn. Darvish wasn’t exactly sharp early but he ultimately settled down. Meanwhile, who put the benzedrine in Mr. Verlander’s Ovaltine? He was a hot mess. And I do mean hot. He was lighting up the radar gun in the early innings but was overthrowing and seemed to…

  23. John Gibbons still believes in Travis Snider

    Mar 16, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v San Diego Padres

    Travis Snider, rated as the #6 overall prospect entering the 2009 season, failed to live up to lofty expectations with the Blue Jays. They cut their losses, trading him to the Pittsburgh Pirates last July for reliever Brad Lincoln. Jays manager John Gibbons, though, is still a believer. Via Rob Biertempfel: “There’s no question the…
