    1 Jul 2015 | 5:29 pm
    The interleague series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Detroit Tigers got off to an intense start Tuesday night at Comerica Park. The spark happened in the fourth inning when Tigers starter Justin Verlander clipped Pittsburgh's Starling Marte on the forearm with a 1-2 pitch. During the next half-inning, Pirates' ace Gerrit Cole drilled Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez with a 95-mph fastball to the backside. That did not sit well with Martinez, who shot a glare toward Cole as he slowly made his way to first base.  Martinez wasn't alone in feeling the pitch was intentional. In the…

    The A.J. Burnett retirement tour was looking more like a victory lap until the 38-year-old recently got a few reminders that maybe his 17th and presumed final season in the majors wouldn't be quite so smooth. After posting baseball's third-lowest ERA (1.89) and a .233 opponents' batting average through his first 13 starts, Burnett (6-3, 2.01 ERA) has found himself in some sticky situations in his last two. "Eventually it was a matter of time before I knew I'd settle in and start getting ahead a little better, get a quick inning here or there," Burnett told MLB's official website.

  • Revisiting Arnold New Kensington UPDATED

    29 Jun 2015 | 8:45 am
    I wanted to give an update of sorts for whatever's going on in Arnold/New Kensington.When last we spoke, a political blog had been taken down and the post hoc ergo propter hoc implication from this paragraph:The political blog focusing on the New Kensington-Arnold School District was taken down not long after a school board member filed a lawsuit this week accusing an anonymous poster of making false and potentially damaging statements about him. I've been told by a source close to the blog that that's not the case.  My source tells me that it was a matter of low traffic which led to a…
  • Right Wing Freak-Outs Over Marriage Equality

    27 Jun 2015 | 6:52 am
    Let's start a World Net Daily.First there's editor-in-chief Joseph Farah: This was not a legal decision. It was a political edict by five men and women in black robes who really believe in their “supremacy.” In short, they believe they are wiser than God who created the institution of marriage and a union of a man and a woman.To Farah the freedom described in Kennedy's decision will surely lead to polygamy and legalized incest.  Oh yea and then there's this: Does Kennedy understand liberty apart from God’s moral code brings on horrors like were experienced during the French…

    I'm normally good for a jab or two at the Tribune-Review (or at least their editorial board for whenever they botch the science) but simple fairness dictates that when they're on the right side of history that achievement should be applauded.For perhaps if they hear the applause and if they get to like it, they'll spend a little more time amongst the rational and reasonable.Today, they're on the right side of history.  Admittedly, they do it on their own terms, but still:No state shall ... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. That's the Equal…

    So. Hey. This kid has been around for 13 months now. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? I still spend most days trying to decide if she's real or not, but there you go. She's 13 months worth of real. She's also 13 months worth of prankster. No joke. The amazing that is Tiny Human is all about the pranks. She is constantly doing everything possible to make everyone laugh. It ranges from sticking her tongue out to pretending to share her food with you then ripping it away just as you're about to take a bite. She cackles with glee every time she makes someone laugh or thinks she has tricked someone. She super…

    We talk about Otherness a lot around here. It's not something to be applauded; it's something born of necessity. When you're a tomboy and your first-born declares her favorite color to be "sparkle," you have a choice. You can either embrace the Otherness or you can spend years trying to beat the sparkle out of the kid. So, yeah, folks who get their kicks trolling this site, you're right. I did have a choice. I didn't have to buy that first princess doll or turn on the ridiculously girly television shows when Alexis was a toddler. But, I did. Out of selfishness. Beating the sparkle out of the…

    One of my children has been complaining endlessly that I don't make tofu enough, which, uhhhhh, WHAT? How did that happen? How did I end up with a kid that whines for tofu instead of, say, chocolate?I still don't understand that Alexis creature. She's fantastic and all, but her preference for healthy foods still baffles me. It's a wonderful thing, it just doesn't originate from my DNA.At all.Still, I am a fan of tofu. It's in my top 10 favorite foods, right below pizza and ice cream and chocolate and ... you get the idea.This is a vegetarian adaptation of Beef and Broccoli. No real surprises…

  • Steelreign : Keith Butler, The Right Man At The Right Time

    30 Jun 2015 | 3:15 am
    Replacing a legend is never an enviable task, just ask Bill Cowher, or better yet Cliff Stoudt, about what it was like replacing Terry Bradshaw. I'm pretty sure that Stoudt wishes he would have had the success that Bill Cowher had replacing Chuck Noll. It is now Keith Butler's turn to replace a Steelers legend as he takes over for long time defensive coordinator, Dick LeBeau. The Father of the 3-4 zone blitz scheme, LeBeau was a master at disguising coverages and would blitz from anywhere out of any formation. His scheme was a nightmare for offensive coordinators around the league, when he…

  • What MATTers : Pitt Men's Basketball Update - June 2015

    20 Jun 2015 | 6:30 am
    We haven't heard too much from Pitt basketball since its fall in the NIT against George Washington. The seniors weren't able to go out on the high note they had hoped. HC Jamie Dixon wasn't able to guide the players to the success he is accustomed to. Thus, I believe there are many questions about this team heading into the summer. Just to name a few: -Will Dixon be able to corral his players to get them on the "same page" this season? -Does the return of F Durand Johnson guarantee any more success for Pitt? -How will the "graduations" of G Cam Wright, F Aron Philips-Nwankwo, and F Derrick…

    9. Pittsburgh Pirates: SS Kevin Newman, Arizona Callis: We've talked about how shortstop is one of the deepest positions in this Draft and here's another one off the board. Newman is that he's one of the better pure hitters in college baseball. He won back-to-back Cape Cod League batting titles, which had never been done. I'm not sure there's really another plus tool and he might be more of a second baseman, but he can hit his way to the big leagues. 32. Pittsburgh Pirates (Russell Martin, TOR): 3B Ke'Bryan Hayes, Concordia Lutheran (Texas) HS Callis: He is another guy who was making a late…
