Game 76: Pirates 4 Dodgers 3

I’ve been waiting for this game for three weeks. It was one thing to watch 4/5ths of the rotation struggle and know that there was talent in AAA that might be able to help while the Cubs got off to a historic start and the Pirates faced down the potential of another Wild Card Game, but it’s been something else entirely to do that while the season crashes and burns around them...

It’s time for the Pirates to move out of their comfort zone with their young pitchers (or: Games 65 and 66: Locke and Nicasio suck)

It was a great win and it was great because it was one of the reminders of what the Pirates are supposed to look like, which is something that’s...
