Cutch could of been the goat running through that coaches stop sign at third. But Jaso came up big. That was the biggest win so far this year. That will halt the critics for Jaso.

Wish we could have KDKA radio sync of this. Kenny Albert and that ex catcher A.J. bloke just s*** me with their negative repetitious baseball call.

It's great to see the Bucs playing with some emotion! For awhile there they just weren't making things happen and it had the look like they were just going through the motions. They have looked much better lately overall and are making more good things happen. Hopefully they will keep it up!

John Jaso ties it in 9th, wins it in 10th with clutch walk-off hit to give #Pirates thrilling win over Mets.

I really whant to see cutch come back big.Not just for obviouse reasons but for him .He was good for pittsburgh and hes a good person.I think mlb whanted to kick the bucs out of the leauge lol. Then cutch showed up and turned it around he deserves support hes owed support.Kinda like the fluery story.

Cole doesn't want to be here. He wants to pitch on west coast and team will overpay for him. He is not an ace, has tantrums on the mound. He will leave once he become a UFA and the pirates would never invest big money in him. You're a fool if you believe otherwise.

Very entertaining game. The bullpen was lights out. I hate seeing Neil in that Mets uniform though. Happy Jaso won it but am still pretty skeptical on why he gets so much playing time but whatevs raise it.
today at 03:44
I don't understand the Jaso haters either. This guy loves baseball so much that he is willing to play where ever and when ever asked. You go Jaso!!!!!

Weird, top of the second and they are already losing! Social media night?? They are getting pounded in both the media and social media...not to mention on the field. You don't need a social media night, the Management just needs listen to the social media to see that they are failing the fans.

Gerrit Cole is a LOSER! I really don't care how hard he can throw, he's just not capable of being a winning pitcher.

After yet another instance of bad judgement by mccutcheon (blowing through the stop signal at 3rd base), he should have been yanked from the lineup. Best to just part ways with him as soon as possible. He will hurt the team more than help from here on out, with his poor attitide and bad play at the plate and in the field. He has no trade value and there are no signs that its going to be otherwise.
yesterday at 21:23
This was the exact same lineup last night and they got stomped. But I do believe this is the best lineup to go with

Another reminder that idiot Nutting traded away an all star second baseman for trash that he later traded back for more trash - nice to see Neil making us looks like fools!

read somewhere that statistically the Pirates have had the toughest schedule in baseball. No Marte, no Kang, no Jamo, the toughest schedule in baseball and their still only 4.5 games back from first in the NL Central. but yeah, this is the worst team in the league, the worst team in baseball, and they need to clean house by June.
yesterday at 06:27
Back to being the offensively challenged Pirates we have seen way too much all season. And Neil Walker reminded his former team that trading him was one of the worst moves in recent history. I bet Nuttsack spent a ton of money to bring in Blo-Rida for his crappy show too. Money that would have been used to keep guys like Walker. #70wins, #financialflexibility, #worstfrontofficeinmlb.

Oldest team in the city, yet little brother to the Steelers and Pens. We need our Pirates to get back to greatness. No championships since '79? Come on! Whatever it takes and whatever it may cost, let's get it done. Bring us a championship!

Jaso out of the line up, Cutch batting 6, Frazier in left. Did someone sneak into Hurdles office and switch the lineup cards? This is only what the fans have been screaming for, for a month now. Glad the guy who's getting paid the big bucks is finally figuring it out.
05/26/2017 at 19:22
This is the best this lineup has looked in a long time. Frazier should be leadoff every single game, and as much as I like McCutchen, putting him in the 6-hole is the best decision for this team.
05/26/2017 at 20:27
I saw the interview with McCutchen before the game on Wednesday .....He could not care less about his performance he has changed for the worse! I don't care if he never plays again or leaves the team..... Take Hurdle with you✋👍

I was against the idea because of power, but I'm starting to reconsider....
Frazier NEEDS to be the #3 hitter. That consistency at the plate could be the difference.

nutting you got some talent in that line up now do some trades and spend some money to get us to playoffs an world series this is stupid not making the team better an spending some money to bring more talent in to go with whats there as a fan i'm upset theses past 4 years you had sold out games you had lots of fans there now its time to give back and spend some money

You do realize, this kid is only "off pace" about 30 at bats from being a league leader in Batting Average?

It's been fun watching Adam Frazier get these opportunities. He's a better version of Sean Rodriguez. An all around utility guy with a good bat. He's also very disciplined at the plate and will take a walk, if needed.
05/25/2017 at 21:56
It's still early in the season, but the specter of a 500 team seems real. Sad to this Pittsburgh expatriate. The Marte situation got things off to a bad start. He should be released outright to set an example.
05/26/2017 at 02:58
What a great performance.
Cervelli and Mercer and Frazier have shown such poise and determination in this series.
I can hope the Bucs can finally break out of this 2 wins 3 losses, 2 wins system they've started.
If they can secure 1 more solid starting pitcher, they could make things happen.
LET'S GO, BUCS!!!

Cutch has 6hrs 20rbi yes he needs to be benched for a couple games bc his avg is at Mendoza line.. we jus gotta understand he's not mvp cutch anymore.. if he can get up to 250 260 avg and finish year with 20+25hrs 80rbi I'll take that
05/25/2017 at 14:46
Didn't care for Cutch ' s attitude yesterday in pregame interview. Basically said he sleeps just fine at night, no worries, and there's more important things in the world. Acted like he could care less whether he hits or not.

Frazier had 6 at bats and got on base 6 times 4 walks, 2-2 batting including a 3 run homerun and 3 runs scored and left 0 players on base.. oh and should I mention he's batting .370.. if any of the Pirates go to the all star game it should be him I'd choose Bell for the HR derby he has some serious pop but that's about it i would of said Taillon but we all know what happened to him but for a pitcher it has to be Nova even though he probably won't go unless he goes undefeated until the ballots are in
05/25/2017 at 04:09
I had just turned the game on, and was like, "Am I seeing this right???? 10th inning, and the Bucs are up 11-5?" (It was right before Mercer's homer.) 7 runs in the 10th Inning? That's incredible! Raise the Jolly Roger!
05/25/2017 at 11:28
Why aren't these young guys playing everyday... Is my question to Clint Hurdle. Osuna would be in right field every game. And I wouldn't be adjusting all the line ups around. Get them in a routine...

05/25/2017 at 04:07
Also what happened to that great farm system we had? I mean yeah the pitchers we brought up have been decent, and Frazier/bell have been good. There really hasn't been a superstar that has come up. Polanco is average at best and his "breakout" season wasn't even that good. We didn't trade our prospects away so idk what happened to one of the best farm systems. I guess the theory of grooming prospects hasn't worked too well

05/24/2017 at 21:45
I see that Cutch is not in the lineup tonight for the Bucs . If anyone can get a hold of Cutch , tell him to stop pulling EVERY pitch . Every coach I ever had told me when you are in a slunp , hit the ball back up the middle , go the the other way . Cutch''s strength is power to all fields .
05/24/2017 at 23:16
If we're leading in the 9th DO NOT BRING IN WATSON. I said it 4 days ago, he's not a Closer. People actually defended that he is. Where y'all at now?

People want Hurdle fired, it's not his fault that Nutting won't spend the first dollar that he ever made, that Kang is a drunk, and that Marte is a druggie. Hurdle does make some questionable decisions, but there is a lot of blame to go around especially to those who are barely batting .200
05/24/2017 at 10:34
Just another example of why Cutch should have been traded in the offseason. Now, the Pirates will get even less for him in a trade since he is repeating his mediocrity from last year.
05/24/2017 at 06:42
Watson is a far better set up man than he has been a closer.

i am really worried for sure cutch shouldnt be in the 3 hole he has been terrible.but what im worried about in this game 11 hits and yet only 3 runs?only up a run this lead is very not safe.if pirates dont tack on they are gonna lose this game,and that would be a total disaster especially after last series which was awesome

Cutch is honestly the worst no.3 hitter I've ever seen. Why can't they move him out of that spot? If he could actually hit, he'd have like 35 RBIs by now. That .205 average gotta go
05/23/2017 at 21:03
Do you think we may ever stop batting Cutch 3rd ? How far does he have to dip before our manager realizes he doesn't belong in the 3 hole any longer ? It's getting pretty comical .
05/23/2017 at 20:22
Well, after the first few games of the season when Cutch went 0-for-9, I complained about Hurdle keeping him in the No. 3 spot and asked if any other team in the majors had as poor a hitter in the No. 3 spot. Every stat geek and Cutch apologist responded by throwing out the names of players who also had sub-par years last year whose managers were giving them the chance to redeem themselves. I heard this morning Cutch is batting. 206. Stat geeks?
