Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated has an update on the contract talks with the Pirates and Andrew McCutchen.
After missing the last five games with a quad injury, Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez will return to the Pirates lineup.
The Pirates will look to rebound from last night’s disappointing 2-1 loss to Houston. Will Pedro Alvarez return to the lineup?
The Pirates continued their three-game series against the Rockies Saturday night in Colorado. Andrew McCutchen hit another home run, but it wasn’t enough to help the Bucs as they fell 4-1.
One day after leaving the team for personal reasons, Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is back in the starting lineup.
Andrew McCutchen opened the game with a homer against slow-starting Edinson Volquez, then singled home the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning Sunday, rallying the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
The Pirates will look to rebound tonight from a disappointing homestand as they take on the 1st place Cincinnati Reds. Manager Clint Hurdle is making major changes to the lineup.
Here are the starting lineup’s for tonight’s game between the Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers.
The Pirates will look to split the series with Colorado this afternoon. Will manager Clint Hurdle make any lineup changes?
It took 14 innings, but the Pirates pulled off a win, beating the Colorado Rockies, 4-3 on Friday night.
Here’s Clint Hurdle’s starting lineup for today’s Home Opener vs. the Colorado Rockies.
As history has proven so many times, it has a tendancy to repeat itself. It’s well documented that the Pirates of recent memory have gotten off to similar fast starts, only to run out of gas faster than Bugatti stuck in rush hour traffic on the Parkway.
Clint Hurdle couldn’t have asked for a better start to his managing career with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Tonight, the Pirates will look to James McDonald to win their second road series of the season.
Considering the Pirates won only 4 road series and a total of 17 road games all of last season, it was a great start in Chicago.
As the Pirates officially start this afternoon, I figured I’d throw 19 predictions for Bucs 2011 season.
