Oct 22 2064: 1st place finish, playoffs ahead!! - by Bennett11 on June 9th, 2024

The pirates finish with a 95-65 record and win the division for the 2nd time in 3 seasons, our pitching was extremely banged up but nonthless have held up strong. Many young pitchers have stepped up, including Rios, Ramos,Romo, Lang, bagley and Casas. All of which had career years. All star closer Rob Fraser had 50 saves for the first time in his career. The bats stayed hit all year with alaya, ishii, Daley, and Bergeron all playing like the all stars they are. Carl Flynn caught fire in his breakout at the end of the season and Ross, Lopez had great rookie seasons.

Ivan Corley continues to cement his Pittsburgh legacy, and had this to say “ wasn’t easy coming of a 72 win season, but we stayed in the race and persevered through injury woes to come out on top. Everyone played their hearts out over the 162 games we play each season.” “We look forward to Palm Springs in the playoffs.”

The pirates will take on Palm Springs in a best of 7 to decide the division champ, best of luck to our team.

Oct 06 2064: 47 runs in 3 games!!! - by Bennett11 on June 5th, 2024

Pirates continue the dominance and currently lead the division by 6 games with a 86-61record. Carl Flynn had a 8 rbi game in game one of a 3 game series against the Woonsocket prowlers and tallied 7 total hits. SP’s Ramos and Shultz combined for 13 1/3 scoreless in there starts and our bullpen didn’t allow a run until the final game. We won 20-5, 14-0, and 13-11. Utter dominance to separate ourselves from the pack. All of our hitters and pitchers broke out of there slumps in this incredible showing.

Manager Ivan Corley stated “this was definitely our best showing and an incredible way to set the tone as the season winds down. We look to continue this as we close out our season.” Keep up the work and go pirates!!!

Sep 04 2064: Engines running!! - by Bennett11 on May 28th, 2024

After a disappointing 11-20 start the pirates are 60-30 since rehiring Ivan Corley to manage and are currently 71-50 with a 6 1/2 game lead in the division, putting them in the drivers seat to win their second title in 3 seasons. Despite only having 4 true starting pitchers and a revolving door at the 5th spot the pirates haven’t lost consecutive series since the beginning of the season.

CP Robert Fraser a former all star and the teams 27 yr old fireballer cut his era from an 8.6 to a 4.03 and eclipses 37 saves 3 away from 40. Former first round pick and current setup man Bart lang has broken out with a 2.50 ERA in 84 innings as the bullpen as a whole has an ERA of 3.6. MR’s Carl Bagley and Lorenzo Rios both have ERA’s in the 3’s. We have 2 players with over 25 homers 3 with BA above .300 and everything has seemed to be clicking. Nothless credit can be given to 13 yr pitching coach Adrian Banachi and hitting coach Russel Tatum. The pirates hope to continue this dominance and clinch our 3rd title. Keep up the work!!

Jul 16 2064: 2064 all stars!! - by Bennett11 on May 15th, 2024

2 of our batters were elected to the all star team, 29 yr old catcher Ivan Daley makes his 8th straight all star game as he extends the pirates record for most all star games played in a row. He has 9HR 51RBI and a .292 average. 1B Nick Ishii makes his second appearance in his 9th season. Leading the team with 20 HR and a .280 batting average.

30 yr old pitcher Craig Snead makes his 2nd career appearance in his 5th season. He is 8-3 in 15 starts and 84 innings pitched with a 3.32 ERA and 72ks. He’s been an anchor in our rotation and the other half of a 1-2 punch with 27yr old SP Louie Hayward who was subsequently snubbed from the all star game.

Our only notable moves during the break was sending 22yr old pitcher Alfsonso Casas to the minors n recalling 21yr old knuckleballer Peter Browning from AAA. We currently sit with a 42-38 record at the break, 7 games back in our division. Gl n go pirates !!!!

Jul 07 2064: Young starter finds his stuff, clubhouse leader released!! - by Bennett11 on May 13th, 2024

The pirates find themselves in a very tight and interesting situation, for the first time in a long time they have 6 young talented pitchers ready to move up, and only 2 spots for them. In response 34 yr old pitcher and longtime pirate Garry Krause was released. Krause was our lone all star rep last season as a pitcher and maintained a 42-26 record with a 3 era across 5 seasons. His release allows 23yr old P Lorenzo Rios to claim a spot after being up n down across the major n aaa over the last 4seasons, Rios holds a 3.61 era across 97 big league innings over the last 4 seasons. 22 yr old pitcher Alfonso Casas has also been recalled n has pitched 6 scoreless innings. The following bullpen shuffle has looked like this :

Release/sent down: 23 Stewart Dix (minors) 27 JP Glick, 34 Garry Krause,
Claimed/called up: 22 Adam Daniel (minors) 22 Alfonso Casas, 23 Lorenzo rios, 26 Matt Paulson, 31 Pat Tyler

25 yr old sp Mario Hibbard (6-5 5.88 Era 14 starts, 7 QS) tossed a 3 hit complete game for the second time in his career, snapping 4 straight poor starts to find his rhythm heading into our final series before the all star break, 27 yr old Louie Hayward leads our pitchers in innings and wins and era (3.00) heading into the break. We currently have 3 batters in the running to potentially get in as well, 1B Nick ishii, C Ivan Daly, 3B Gus Vaan Der Burg.

The pirates are 3rd in the division with a 38-37 record and 8 games back with 5 games left before the break, manager Ivan Corley hopes to get the team back on track.
