Insider: Cole pitches three-hitter for first career complete game as Pirates rout Mariners 10-1

Gerrit Cole pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game and slumping Andrew McCutchen had a three-run home run and a double among his three hits as the Pirates rolled to a 10-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on…

Three Thoughts: Time has come to drop McCutchen in batting order

Three Thoughts: Time has come to drop McCutchen in batting order

The Pirates need to move slumping Andrew McCutchen down in the lineup, MLB should rethink its concussion protocol in light of the Jameson Taillon incident and Clint Hurdle has done a good job handling a bad starting rotation.

Gene Collier: Streak snapped 75 years ago today

While researching something else this week, the solution for the 2016 Pirates virtually blasted out of cyberspace at me; if they want to overtake the Chicago Cubs and win the National League Central Division, all they need is for Andrew McCutchen to go on a 56-game hitting streak.

This ad says Andrew McCutchen is on the Giants, and I'm pretty sure that's legally binding

Ugh, this is awkward, Pirates, but we'll make it up to you. This is a New Era advertisement being run across the internet, including right here on McCovey Chronicles. No big deal, right? Enhance! Why, it says that Andrew McCutchen is on the Giants. What a silly mistake! Except I talked to a lawyer. And he told me the following: LAWYER: This is 100-percent legally binding. McC: Just because it was on an advertisement? LAWYER: Yes. Completely legally binding. Andrew McCutchen is legally on the Giants now. McC: Wow. LAWYER: This is...

How could this All-Star Game outdo the 2012 All-Star Game?

It would take a lot of work You remember the 2012 All-Star Game. Man, that was fun. Matt Cain pitched two scoreless innings, Pablo Sandoval tripled in three runs in the first inning, Melky Cabrera went 2 for 3 with a homer and was named the game’s MVP, and at some point FOX’s cameras caught then-Dodger and always-unfortunately-tattooed Matt Kemp saying the game was “the San Francisco Giants show.” My question to you is: How could tonight’s game be even more satisfying to a Giants fan? You may wonder why I’m going with the 2012 game over the 1934 game where Carl Hubbell struck...

Pirates lose to Cubs, 6-5, in first-half finale

Andrew McCutchen is heading in the right direction. Twice Sunday, he either tied the game or gave the Pirates the lead. Both times, the pitching staff gave it back.

The MVP candidacy of Matt Carpenter

Although he has received some votes in the past, 2016 may be the year where Matt Carpenter merits serious consideration for National League Most Valuable Player. In 2013, following his first season as a full-time starter, Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter finished 4th in MVP voting. But even after finishing so prominently in the balloting, he was never a serious candidate for winning it: he received zero first place votes and received only six second place votes during an election in which Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen ran away with the award. In 2014, following a position...

Mueller: McCutchen must be the loudest solution to Pirates' problems

What matters to the Pirates is who or what can get them out of the rut they’re in, and back to where many expected them to be, which is in a battle for a playoff spot. The guy most qualified…
