Madison Bumgarner, Giants dominate Pirates 8-0 as Bucs' season ends
The Pirates lost the NL Wild Card game to the Giants 8-0 Wednesday after a dominating performance by Madison Bumgarner and a very strange one by Clint Hurdle. There's plenty of blame to go around here, and no one person taking care of business would have turned this mess of a loss into a win. The Pirates managed just four hits, all singles, as Madison Bumgarner proved to be very di...

Giants vs. Pirates: Five things to watch
Here are five things to watch for as we approach tonight's Wild Card game: 1. Travis Ishikawa vs. Starling Marte in left field. I've mentioned this a couple times already, but it bears repeating: Travis Ishikawa isn't a left fielder, and playing left field at PNC Park is hard. The Giants, meanwhile, have a left-handed starter who

Edinson Volquez, Russell Martin ready to go in Wild Card game
Edinson Volquez is well-known to like his sleep and he is the most laid-back, fun-loving player on the team. So, it is probably a good sign that the right-hander today smiled and said he "just chilled" at his house and "slept all day" yesterday. Trying to read anything into a player's demeanor is always risky, but Volquez showed no outward signs that st...

Gamethread: Athletics vs. Royals
The Pirates don't kick off their postseason until tomorrow, but here's a thread if you care to discuss tonight's elimination game between the Athletics and Royals, as Kansas City makes its first playoff appearance since before you were born.

Pirates a good bet to win Wild Card game, but barely
Another year, another Wild Card game, and I'm going with the Pirates to win again. But it's close. Let's begin with the pitching matchup, in which Madison Bumgarner will face Edinson Volquez. Bumgarner is better for reasons too obvious to belabor, and the fact that he's a good lefty pitcher adds to his edge, although not by a ton. The Pirates have a respectable...
