2012 is officially upon us and while the new year generally promises a chance at a new start, it’s been all too familiar for the Penguins.
The injury situation continues to handicap the Pittsburgh Penguins. In addition to missing both Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang, the team also had to play Saturday night without Jordan Staal and their goal drought continued against the New Jersey Devils.
The month of August has been anything but kind to the Pittsburgh Pirates and the trend continued Saturday night. Paul Maholm was charged with seven runs after allowing 10 hits in 6 2-3 innings as the San Diego Padres beat the Pirates 13-2.
In the midst of their long losing streak, the Pirates made a move Saturday as they try to end their August swoon. Right-hander Brad Lincoln was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis before their game against the San Diego Padres on Saturday evening.
The Pirates slide back to reality continued Friday night as they added once again to the loss column coming off a sweep at the hands of the fifth place Chicago Cubs.
Former Pirate and current color commentator John Wehner joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on SportsRadio 93-7 The FAN as the team looks to end their current losing streak.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have the exact same record (18-22) right now as they did a year ago. Is there any reason to believe that this season will have a better ending than last?
