Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Karstens and Bush at seven.
I'd be entertained if All-Star Evan Meek pitched every single game from here on out.
Maholm and Davis at eight.
After a surprisingly tough series at Houston, the Pirates can move on and continue their long winning streak in Milwaukee.
Ohlendorf and Oswalt at two in a likely Game 7 NLCS preview.
McCutchen and Moehler at eight.
Remember, the Bucs can't win EVERY day. And each loss will make the second-half comeback that much more remarkable.
Sixth day of Lincolnmas vs. Wandy Rodriguez at eight.
Obviously, the ascent to the wild-card begins with fifth place, but don't lose sight of the big picture, where these Bucs go all the way.
Everyone rest up for this crucial series with the hapless Astros. Fifth place could be on the line.
Blanton and Karstens at one.
These two teams are looking pretty evenly matched. I'd say if the Pirates meet the Phillies in the playoffs, the series would go five or seven games.
