Rob Scuderi might no longer be capable of playing at an NHL level. It feels like it's no longer possible to discuss the Penguins without stating that as a preface.
"We know what we are." Gerrit Cole spoke those five words to me in a silent, sullen clubhouse at PNC Park late on this Wednesday night.
He seemed human. He arrived at PNC Park on Tuesday afternoon by riding the Cubs' team bus rather than walking across the Allegheny.
Marc-Andre Fleury had just plodded off the ice, peeled off his mask and plopped himself at his stall following the Penguins' exhaustive practice Sunday at Consol Energy Center.
Covering the Penguins’ practice at Consol Energy Center today for Josh Yohe, who’s getting a rare day off, and I’ll have a full column coming later today. In the interim,...
The snaps were fine, the holds were firm, there was barely a breeze and, heck, they'd even cemented off the Dreaded Open End with the stadium's summer expansion.
The Pirates can beat the Cardinals in the National League Division Series. I didn’t believe that in 2013, but I do now.
"I can take getting beat," Andrew McCutchen was saying at his stall late Monday night, his eyes drifting skyward as if still searching for answers.
For far too long, it's been the most fait accompli scenario in football: If Ben Roethlisberger goes down, the Steelers are done. And maybe they are.
Daniel Sprong won’t break camp with the Penguins. That’s not hot news as much as it is common sense. Terrific as the franchise’s top pick in this past NHL Draft...
It's completely uncool in the hockey culture to leave the rink right after practice, so the timing of how and when players exit can be plenty telling.
At 3:01 p.m. Sunday, on the occasion of the Steelers' 83rd home opener, I swear I heard it. "DEE-FENSE! DEE-FENSE!"
For all the fuss kicked up with the Steelers’ opener in Foxborough a week ago, from headsets to head-shaking playcalls, what might have gotten lost is something of potentially great...
It was simultaneously as wonderful and weird a scene as I could recall at PNC Park.
Ray Searage deserves all the praise, multiplied many times over, and even then he deserves a cherry wrapped in a bright red bow on top.
The Steelers were sloppy, sluggish, disorganized and outright dumb in losing their season opener to the Super Bowl champion Patriots, 28-21.
Deflate it, hate it, feel about what's about to take to take place at Gillette Stadium however you will, but count me among the elated.
I've checked again but, to be sure, I phoned a friend at the Elias Sports Bureau to confirm it: The Pirates are 81-0, and Clint Hurdle is 0-54.
At 6:02 p.m. Central Daylight Time, Gregory Polanco swung through a Trevor Rosenthal fastball to finish the Pirates' 4-1 loss to the Cardinals.
Looking back now on the Pirates' previous visit here, they might as well have stashed J.A. Happ in the equipment trunk.
MILWAUKEE — Francisco Cervelli was still shaking his head as he buttoned up to the shirt collar. It was as if he’d never seen a ghost before. At least not...
Jeff Locke and Neal Huntington carried on a lengthy conversation in a side corridor of Miller Park's visiting clubhouse late Wednesday night.
Once upon a time, right here in this very House of Horrors, the Pirates had this pinch-hitting hulk by the name of Michael Restovich.
As the Steelers seemingly went out of their way to remind us all Saturday in the 43-19 loss to the Bills, the primary concern very much remains the secondary.
CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — “The smile would be there either way, even if I was just with my family and not playing hockey. It’s just that it’s a little wider...
Michael Vick tortured dogs. Maimed them. Mangled their faces beyond recognition. Even killed them. That said, the man has every right to play in the NFL.
