02/23/2024 – Ethan Smith – @mvp_EtHaN I always love correlation, especially when it comes to sports. Does me matching the jerseys that the Pirates wear on any specific day correlate to them winning more often? I don’t know. I mean the answer is probably no, but I truly don’t know. One thing I do know is that statistical analysis in baseball can lead to fun questions, questions like the title of this piece. If you listened to my episode of Locked On Pirates on Reynolds as part of my 2024 Player Preview Series (which you totally should), you may have noticed that I made specific points, with sta ..read more

2-22-24 – By Gary Morgan – @garymo2007 on X There was desire on both sides to get a deal done, and like Bryan Reynolds and Ke’Bryan Hayes before him, Mitch Keller becomes another member of this core locked up for most of the decade. This was first reported by Jeff Passan & Kiley McDaniel at ESPN. Keller and the Bucs are in agreement on a 5 year, 77 million dollar agreement that keeps Keller in Black and Gold through most of the decade and more to the point, continues the effort to lock in players when they feel they’ve found one. The assumption of course will be that the negative article y ..read more

Nutting is Cheap, and that Really Changes Nothing

2-15-24 – By Gary Morgan – @garymo2007 on X Every year someone writes some exposé about not only how cheap Bob Nutting is, but how incompetent he and his organization have been and in fact are. It’s really never anything fans weren’t aware of, just combining things to show the sum is much worse than they might have assumed. Adding some more meat on already bleached and picked to death bones. The latest is from the Athletic, a subscription sports site that I’m sure many of you are subscribed to, if you are, read it for yourself. Even if you aren’t, you’ll see quotes from it and repostings for t ..read more

Important Numbers For Pittsburgh Pirates

2-21-24 – By Michael Castrignano – @412DoublePlay on X I just finished up the busiest time of the year for me (top 30 prospects episodes – check them out if you haven’t already) and now I’m ready to jump back into writing some articles on my beloved Buccos. Ahead of last season, I did preview pieces on Mike Burrows, Johan Oviedo and Ke’Bryan Hayes and predicted breakout seasons for each of them. If not for an early injury that took Burrows out for the year (and what will be most of this year as well), I think I would have gone 3-for-3 there. But alas, with each new season, hope springs e ..read more

2-19-24 – By Gary Morgan – @garymo2007 on X This Saturday at 1:05 PM, I’ll be in another world. Oh, I’ll still be in Pittsburgh, but when I put in my headphones and tune in the Pirates vs the Twins for the first game of the Grapefruit League schedule, I’ll be right there and I probably won’t miss more than a handful of innings this team plays for the next seven and a half months unless they make it last longer lord willing. I’ll still find opportunity to watch some MiLB games in that stretch too, you just have to, and a lot of this team’s story is still to be written and it starts down there ..read more

Steel City Pirates Q&A – Signs of Intelligence on Social Media?

2-18-24 – By Gary Morgan – @garymo2007 on Twitter I wasn’t sure I was going to do one of these this week. My mom’s birthday is a week after mine so we had kind of a cross over birthday thing this weekend, and social media lately, especially the Pirates stuff has been insane recently. Most of you who submit regular questions here, well, you know I try to give you as serious an attempt as I can to answer your question, but the current climate had me wondering if I might be fishing in a sewer with a hot dog hoping for a clean smelling trout by asking or questions this week. Even so, a b ..read more

See yinz tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/XHohcn8jn5 — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) February 14, 2024 Seeing pictures from the early arriving journalists and fans who already showed up just to catch a glimpse of someone through some chain link fencing. Reporters excitedly reporting that David Bednar and Mitch Keller are playing catch…it’s all so silly, but it’s all so awesome too. I’m not ready to make predictions yet, in fact, I don’t even think they’ve finished forming the roster, I’ll let ..read more

02/13/24 – By Ethan Smith – @mvp_EtHaN on X Valentine’s Day is usually a day of appreciation to a partner or someone important to you, unless you’re like me and think the holiday is stupid. Instead, on Wednesday, my eyes and ears will be glued to Twitter, or X, or whatever you care to call it nowadays, as the Pittsburgh Pirates pitchers and catchers will officially report to Bradenton, Florida for Spring Training, kicking off baseball season with football out of the way. Pitchers and catchers reporting is always an important date on the baseball calendar for a multitude of reasons, ranging fro ..read more

Pirates Sign Yasmani Grandal for 2.5 Million

2-11-24 – By Gary Morgan – @garymo2007 on X In keeping with the cherished tradition of the Ben Cherington era, the Pirates signed what at the very least is a notable name during a time when most of the country is busy doing anything but caring about what the Pirates do. That’s right, even as Usher is singing at the Super Bowl halftime show, details are coming together about the Pirates one year pact with Cuban Catcher/1B/DH Yasmani Grandal. Coming right off the heels of missing out on Gary Sanchez, fans could have supposed a whole lot of things. Were they just looking for another bat who could ..read more
