There are few professional relationships I've valued over the years more than the one with Francisco Cervelli. I'm delighted to share it's very much intact.
Corey Dickerson's two pivotal muffs in left field cost the Pirates in a 7-0 loss to the Cardinals Monday night at Busch Stadium.
In a life of sports journalism, I've never once been accused of misquoting anyone. Or using something that was off the record.
The Pirates are 2.5 games out of first place in the Central Division at the All-Star break, and it no longer looks like a mirage.
Now that the Penguins and Mike Sullivan have put pen to paper on a contract extension, he can again become what he espouses of his players.
Elias Diaz buried his heels into the batter's box with the Pirates down a run, three outs to burn, facing one of baseball's most renowned closers. He worked a full-count...
Joe Maddon sure didn't seem like the smartest manager in baseball in burying the Cubs in their 6-5 loss to the Pirates.
Josh Bell hit three more home runs in the Pirates' 18-5 crushing of the Cubs Monday night at PNC Park.
I get it. Everyone hates the owner. Or the front office. Or both. I also get this: Josh Bell is booming his way toward a baseball season for the ages.
It's a terrific trade from the Pittsburgh perspective: The Penguins move Phil Kessel, a problem, within the constraints of a limited no-trade clause, another problem.
Samuel Poulin and Nathan Legare, the Penguins' top two picks in the NHL Draft, both impressed again on the first day of development camp.
"Man, we needed that." This was Josh Bell. He and I were talking after the Pirates' spectacular Sunday double-upending of the Padres at PNC Park.
It's been three decades since the Canadiens won their 24th and most recent Stanley Cup, and it's been nearly as long since the Nordiques bid au revoir to Quebec.
The Penguins won't trade Evgeni Malkin or Kris Letang.
The only thing cooler than Jack Hughes' oversized, oblong shades on this Thursday afternoon was the setting.
There are two completely distinct occurrences transpiring over the two days on any NHL Draft. The draft. The stuff people care about.
Remember Harold Ramirez? He lasered a three-run home run and a double Sunday, one that might not have climbed more than a couple dozen feet off the ground.
The Penguins traded Maatta to the Blackhawks for right winger Dominik Kahun and a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.
James Washington doesn't make much sense. He stands 5 feet 11, probably with spikes included, but he's stamped as being a high-point receiver in the NFL.
As Mike Tomlin wonderfully worded it Tuesday upon the opening of minicamp, "We're all undefeated, untied, un-scored-upon this time of year.
"We’ve had number of games where we were trailing, 4-2, our starter gets knocked out in the fifth, we go to our middle relievers and, next thing you know, the...
Jung Ho Kang smoked a baseball 457 feet Sunday at Miller Park and barely batted an eyelash upon emerging from the box.
Colin Moran's homered in both games of the Pirates' series here at Miller Park, three times in his past four games, five times in his past nine games.
Jordan Lyles needed 92 pitches to last all of three innings for the Pirates, and that's kind of how it's been going for him of late.
Rookie Davis, the latest in the Pirates' long line of ineffective minor-league help, lasted three innings in a loss to the Brewers.
