5 Changes To Pirates Lineup

The Pirates anemic offense cost them another game last night. The problem for manager Clint Hurdle is that the players he’s counting on for offense just aren’t hitting. I’m going to play manager for a day and give Hurdle 5 changes that I’d make to the Pirates lineup.


Charlie Morton

Morton Leads Way As Pirates Defeat Astros 6-1

Charlie Morton took a shutout into the eighth inning Saturday, and unlike last night with Paul Maholm, the Pirates bats gave their pitcher enough support for a win at PNC Park. Lyle Overbay added his first home run at home this season and Andrew McCutchen had a two-run double in the 6-1 victory over the Houston Astros.

Pirates Fall To Astros, 3-2

With the Bucs (15-17) just one game shy of .500 and coming off a winning road series against the San Diego Padres, hopes were high at PNC Park for the home team.

Idle Thoughts- Pirates Push Towards Respectability A Welcome Distraction

Overbay, Diaz Teaching Young Bucs To Be True Major Leaguers

When Lyle Overbay and Matt Diaz sit at their lockers in the Pirates’ locker room they know they stand out and there is a reason for that. The 34-year-old Overbay, a first baseman, and 33-year-old Diaz, an outfielder, are the veterans on a team full of youngsters.
