the Nationals have crashed twelve homers in the last 24 hours...

Pirates win again! 10-16 is all they need to do for that elusive winning season.

Craig Kimbrel has now faced 183 batters this year, and he's struck out 92 of them.

No pitcher has ever struck out over 50% of the batters he's faced over a full season (min: 25 batters faced).

And, and, and, Fredi brought Kimbrel into game in the eighth inning with the tying run on third base. My magazine letter missives have finally gotten through.

And haven't played any Major League teams in that span, either.

Minor has had 8 quality starts in his last 10 games, with a 2.56 era and a 4-1 strike out to walk ratio. Unfortunately he's 3-4 over that span.

I work with a guy who's an avid Pirates fan, and he currently is more concerned with finishing above .500 than earning a wild-card berth...and, sad to say, also more concerned with the other occupants of a North Side stadium. (That sweep at Milwaukee probably drained much of his enthusiasm.) I told him to show more faith in the Bucs, and after what St. Louis and Los Angeles have done lately, why not?
   8. Rennie's Tenet Posted: September 06, 2012 at 11:35 AM (#4228197)
Pirate fans can always turn to the playoffs if .500 is achieved. I'd hate not to be able to really savor .500 if the team doesn't make the playoffs.

That slacker Aroldis Chapman is at 46.8 percent.

How could these pitchers all be getting these strikeouts if not for some sort of steriod? Innocence is dead. All the records are tainted.
