What a game. What a back-and-forth affair on a hot, muggy (sometimes stormy) Sunday that held my interest headed into the All-Star Break. I'm guessing it might have held yours, all the way through the time Colin Moran slid into the plate and gave the Pirates and come-from-behind (a couple times)...

PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - It was a historic weekend at PNC Park for the Pirates. The Bucs became the first team to complete a five-game sweep since August 2006 when the Yankees won five straight against the Red Sox. Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco not only hit back-to-back home runs in the...

What is the world coming to? Apparently, we can't celebrate the beautiful people during the beautiful game anymore. My Lord do some get offended so easily and/or do they go out of their way looking to be offended. The latest tale comes from The World Cup, where FIFA wants to clamp down on --- get...

It's a bad idea, nothing more than a money grab by leagues that for years decried sports betting as immoral and a threat to their games — until they figured out there might be some money to be made on it.

College basketball season is a long way away. Lots of stuff happening on the sports landscape between now and when the Pitt Panthers tip off. I can make one guarantee, however --- Pitt will win more Atlantic Coast Conference games than it did last season. Yeah, Pitt will win at least one. That's a...

I've consumed the Pirates a long time. I'm not old, but I'm old enough. I remember a lot of things as it pertains to the Pirates.
