St. Louis Cardinals
There have been a lot of questions surrounding Pirates pitcher — and free agent — A.J. Burnett since the Pirates’ season ended.
The New York Yankees are America’s team. Or are they? The Evil Empire just doesn’t feel so daunting anymore, winning just one title since the last year of the ’90s dynasty.

The other shoe dropped for A.J. Burnett on Friday afternoon. It was Gerrit Cole’s gigantic shoe, vehemently stomping out the possibility that Burnett should touch the baseball again in this best of five, National League Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates played like veterans. Cole gave up two hits in six dominant innings and had an RBI in his postseason debut, Pedro Alvarez homered for the second straight day and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 Friday to even their NL division series at a game apiece.
It’s been a rough day for Pirates fans, both here and in St. Louis, but many remain optimistic despite the Game 1 rout at the hands of the Cardinals.
Carlos Beltran’s three-run homer sparked a seven-run third inning and the St. Louis Cardinals got seven stingy innings from Adam Wainwright, delivering a reality jolt to the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 9-1 rout Thursday in their NL division series opener.
The anticipation of the Bucs moving on to face the St. Louis Cardinals has been as thick as Heinz ketchup.

Many fans described the Wild Card win over the Reds as one of the greatest moments for them. While it will be difficult to top that, fans will be able to unite once again even though the Buccos are on the road.
Tickets are still available for Thursday’s game at Busch Stadium, and there’s sure to be some Pittsburgh fans that make the trip to sit in the stands.
