NL Wild Card Game: Giants 8 Pirates 0
Let’s start with this: From when I got down to Pittsburgh around 5 PM until the first pitch was amazing. There were a handful of moments from 2001-2007 at PNC Park where I’d look at my dad or my friend or whoever I was at the game with and say, “THIS! This is it! This […]

The 2014 National League Wild Card Game: There’s not much left to say
Now that it’s time to write a game preview for this game, I sort of feel talked out. I’ve said my piece about Edinson Volquez and about the Pirate offense and about the historical precedent between the Pirates and Giants and the nature of these one-game playoffs. I haven’t talked about the Giants much, but most […]

Bob Robertson and the Giants: Tonight, everyone matters
When the Pirates and Giants play into tonight’s Wild Card Game, it’ll be their first playoff meeting since the 1971 NLCS. The 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates were a fearsome offensive baseball team. They lead the National League with 788 runs scored and 154 home runs. Their .274 batting average was the second in the NL, their .330 […]

Enough about Edinson Volquez: Let’s talk about how good the Pirates are at hitting
Much of the focus in the run-up to tonight’s Wild Card Game has understandably focused on Edinson Volquez. This is understandable. The Royals started James Shield, the A’s started Jon Lester, the Giants are starting Madison Bumgarner, and the Pirates are starting Edinson Volquez. Volquez sticks out like a sore thumb in that quartet, and […]

What did Edinson Volquez do differently in 2014, and what hasn’t changed?
Edinson Volquez had a better year in 2014 than he did in 2013. This seems like an obvious statement to make — Volquez had the worst ERA among qualified pitchers in baseball last year, putting up a 5.71 ERA with the Padres and Dodgers. Given that the Padres and Dodgers both pitch in pitcher’s parks, that number […]

The 2014 regular season was frustrating, weird, and amazing. So what’s next?
Today might be the worst sports day of the year. The Pirates and Giants won’t play the National League Wild Card Game until Wednesday night, and so I’m sitting here on Monday morning trying to sort through a huge tangle of thoughts and sort them into two or three day’s wort of posts, while simultaneously […]
