I'm hoping the Pirates make a move or two prior to the deadline to beef things up going into this series. If we can win 3/5 of this series, which is going to be really tough, I think we could actually win the division.


3 of 5 would be awesome!!! But will be tough.

I'm just thrilled I will be able to see a game... Wednesdays game is on ESPN.

Locke v. Wainright


Well, there's our 3!


Smile yep


Yeah except now I'm greedy and I want all 5. I'd hate to see us lose the last two after starting so strong and I think tonight is going to be the best matchup of the series.

If nothing else we should have a lot of momentum going into game 4. It was great to see Alex Presley have a big hit in the first of last nights two games to push us ahead for the win.

I agree... don't stop now!

17 runs in 3 games in our biggest series of the year so far... gotta love it.

I definitely do, I love the Pirates but honestly it's not too often I watch the games, it's so hard to sit through 9 innings of boring baseball for me and good lord do they usually play alot of it and it has almost always left us disappointed..it wore me down. I've been watching a lot more of their games, they're giving us a reason to be excited.

I'm really glad they mentioned Clint Barmes' offensive struggles last night during game one. He was really getting to me last night. Multiple times he was in a position to hit the go ahead RBI base hit and he didn't do it, either grounded or flew out. But, as they said, he is a great defensive asset.

Pedro Alvarez really frustrated me last night too...I don't know what the heck he was swinging at last night but more than once he went like 5 miles out of the zone trying to hit a pitch and wasn't swinging at the ones that appeared to be right dead center.

AJ Burnett really stood tall in that first game and the defense helped Cumpton out big time in game 2. Perhaps this year...really will be different.

I genuinely believe, that if we make the playoffs, especially as the division winner, we have a real shot at winning the World Series.

Disappointing that after all this years of making some type of significant trade, they could not pull the trigger for a RF with a bat. instead, they get a below Mendoza line hitting SS from Seattle...

Me too. I would have liked to see them acquire someone in RF but I can live with it when we're playing clutch baseball like this.

I'm a little worried about Morton tonight, I'm not a fan of his tbh.

Good Lord Morton is garbage. I would have pinch hit for him in the 2nd inning with bases loaded.

Welcome to the party! Wink


I don't want to get caught up in the whole "best record in baseball" hype. Just want to keep playing solid ball and stay ahead of the Cards & Reds

Yeah, going 4-1 in the last series with the Cards was real nice but they're a good enough team that they could take the division back quickly if the Pirates hit a rough patch, and I'd certainly rather seen the Pirates go into the playoffs as a division winner than wildcard.

I follow baseball loosely as the season it just crazy long. First real season following the Pirates, maybe I'm a good luck charm Wink
