Pittsburgh Pirates series preview: Wait, who are the Royals playing?

At the trade deadline, the Pittsburgh Pirates tore a page out of the 2017 Royals book and went after what they thought was the final piece of the puzzle to push them into the playoffs. Neal Huntington and company sent Austin Meadows, Tyler Glasnow, and Shane Baz—all very serious pieces of what could have been the Pirates’ future—for Chris Archer. Archer is under control through the 2021 season and at reasonable prices through the entire run of his contract with two club options at the back end, so the deal wasn’t only for this year, but since they made the move, they have lost five...

Game Thread #148: Pittsburgh Pirates (72-73) @ Milwaukee Brewers (84-63)

Today is the first day of the rest of the season... After a deep breath on their off day, the Milwaukee Brewers (84-63) return home to Miller Park to open a three game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates (72-73). The Bucs have played Milwaukee very well so far this year, so hopefully they have the Brewers’ undivided attention. OK, they can glance at the scoreboard occasionally, but that’s it. Chris Archer (4-7, 4.56), long rumored a target of the Brewers when he was with the Rays - before the Pirates decided that they didn’t need top prospects anymore - looks to throw a monkey...
