Job not finished

The Pirates have done a much better job (compared to past years) at completing sweeps this season, but they couldn’t quite get it done this time around and had to settle for 2 of 3 against the Braves. 2 of 3 is normally pretty good, but at home, against a sub-.500 team, when you had a chance to win a game pitched by Jeff Locke, dropping the final game of a homestand that wound...

A mess, but a win

For a while, the Pirates looked to be continuing their weekend of misery in Washington as they returned to PNC Park on Tuesday. Jeff Locke didn’t get through five innings and put the Bucs behind 4-0. They couldn’t get any hits in the first couple innings against a guy that was not only making his big league debut, but also wasn’t throwing any strikes. There was more ugly...

One streak ends, another lives on

Well, the Pirates finally gave up a run. Two, actually. Bunch of bums. Should probably get rid of Jeff Locke now, right? (OK, that would have been at least a semi-serious statement a couple of weeks ago, but he’s pitched his way back to “respectable fifth starter” territory) . Locke actually kept the scoreless streak going into the sixth before it ended at thirty-five innings...

Impossible shutout streak, meet Jeff Locke

The Pirates take their crazy streak of shutout innings and incredible on the road tonight to continue their home-and-home with the White Sox. The Pirates’ last road trip went quite well, with a 7-3 run through San Diego, San Francisco, and Atlanta. Jeff Locke starts for the Bucs tonight and his last start against the Phillies was quite good — he threw six shutout innings, striking...

Jeff Locke, whatever

Jeff Locke’s last start was really bad, and then somehow the Pirates gave the game a worse ending. I want to tell you that he’s pitching for his job, but he’s probably not because with Charlie Morton in Vance Worley’s spot, there’s not really anyone to take his job from him. The Pirates have lost five of their last six games. This is very hard to get excited for. Josh Harrison...

Jeff Locke tries to get the Pirates a split with the Cubs

It’s only been two games, but I’ve been quite impressed with the 2015 version of Jeff Locke. I don’t like to jump to too many conclusions based on just a couple of games, but Locke’s control looks vastly improved this year and his ground balls are way up. Obviously Locke’s control has varied pretty widely from start-to-start over his career, but I feel like we’ve seen...
