  • NL wild card preview: Pirates look to battle past playoff-tested Giants (Big League Stew)

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:48 am
    There's no doubt the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco have taken two vastly different roads to reach the 2014 NL wild-card game.  For the Pirates, there are 20 years of futility now firmly placed in the rearview mirror. The satisfaction of a winning season and simply making the postseason in 2013 has given way to desires of winning their first World Series championship since 1979. For the battled-tested Giants, they've been there and done that twice since 2010, but the hunger for a third championship is strong.  The Pirates appeared in the first NL wild card game in 2013, defeating the…

    The world is a very different place than it was eight years ago when Alexis was Mila's age. Everywhere I look, I see things that have changed. I try not to think about the tough stuff like the police presence that is now standard at Alexis' school. Instead, I try to focus on the funny stuff. Dora, for example. I'm not sure what the hell happened to her, but her head isn't shaped like a football anymore. She's still annoying, but now she's annoying and ... almost cool looking. Not quite. Almost. Car seats are different, too. Mila's infant car seat is pretty much idiot proof, which is a far cry…

I went to go buy French fries, but I ended up with Totchos because OF COURSE I DID. Now I'm stuck in a Totchos rut. It's a delicious, delicious rut.Sure, they don't look like much, but you know very well looks can be deceiving.

First and foremost, I thought our forecheck was really spot on. I thought we put a lot of pressure on their defense. Got pucks turned over. Even when we didn’t, we were getting above the puck and making sure that we turned it over from behind even though we had missed on the initial pass. 2. I thought secondly, again in the offensive zone, we spread them out nicely. We had a lot of good quality opportunities, shots at…
