For Duke's Sake, the Pirates Need Better Defense


Most years, it seems that the Pirates are about average in either runs scored or runs allowed and dramatically below average on the other. This can lead fans to argue that if they only spent some...

Zach Duke Pitches Through Earthquake


Zach Duke pitched through an earthquake last night and shut down the Giants as the Pirates won, 7-0.  Regarding the earthquake: big deal! I actually had my first experience with earthquakes a few...

Link Roundup: Pirates Acquire Robinzon Diaz From Jays
