Rough week for our Buccos, but that’s going to happen when any one aspect of the club falters. What separates the bad/good/great teams is the ability to survive and win when some facets of the game fail.

The Pirates looked to bounce back and win the series in Milwaukee today. After Trevor Cahill blew up yesterday giving up 7 runs the Bucs really needed to get some length and preferably quality out of Chad Kuhl.
‘Twas the day before Christmas and all through PNC Park, not a creature was stirring especially without Kyle Stark. Cleats and gloves were hung in their lockers with care, in hopes that Opening Day soon would be there. The Pirates Fans were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of transactions danced in theirContinue reading “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas: Pirates Edition”
