The Pirate third baseman joined The Fan to talk about his role in one of the more exciting wins in PNC Park history.
Pirates pitcher Evan Meek joined 93.7 The Fan’s Chris Mueller after the team’s comeback victory over the Mets Tuesday night to talk about picking up the first win at Citi Field in franchise history in relief of James McDonald.
A few nights ago on the show we discussed villainous teams and players in sports–ones that you loved to root against, but also ones that caused you a lot of pain as a sports fan. With that in mind, and because the Miami Heat are now in the NBA Finals, and they’re the ultimate sports villain right now, here is my list of the top 5 Pittsburgh sports villains of all-time.
The Pirates right fielder, who went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and scored twice, joined 93-7 The Fan’s Chris Mueller after an interleague victory over the Detroit Tigers.
The Pirates beat reporter from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette joined 93-7 The Fan’s Chris Mueller early Saturday morning to discuss the Pirates’ Friday night win over the Tigers.
Admit it, you thought the following scenario was going to play out after the Pirates lost to the Nationals to stretch their winless streak to six.
There’s no excuse for what transpired, or should I say, failed to transpire last night at PNC Park.
Much has been made of the fact that the Pittsburgh Pirates have climbed back to “average” in the standings, with a 17-17 record.
Sitting one game under .500 about 1/5 of the way through the season is nothing to shout about for most baseball teams. Heck, given that the Pirates have flirted with .500 later than this in some of their recent seasons, it isn’t really anything for fans to crow about.
A few quick thoughts after the Steelers took Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward with the 31st pick in the draft.
A scenario that might have seemed inconceivable after the Pens took a 3-1 series lead last week has now become reality, and the Pens will have to try to shake the demons of last year’s Game 7 loss at home against the Montreal Canadiens and beat the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday night to keep their season alive.
The NHL announced its finalists for the league’s top GM. Three names were announced. None of those names was Ray Shero.
I can’t figure out why, but no one seems to be taking the Bolts seriously. That’s a mistake.
Losing 7-1 in the home opener is demoralizing, sure, but what really bothered me was that the Pirates didn’t lose a hard fought game like they did in St. Louis, and they couldn’t blame the loss on a meltdown by a normally reliable back of the bullpen guy like they could in Chicago.
It’s been mentioned by Gene Collier in the Post-Gazette already, but I feel the need to reiterate the idea that the Pirates’ series to open this season against the Cubs was significant beyond the fact that they took two out of three games. It showed us that Clint Hurdle cares.
