Keller lands on Top 10 RHP Prospects list

The Pirates spent the long weekend reshaping their roster, trading a pair of cornerstone players for a haul of young talent. But the Pirates' next young ace may have been in their system all along.


Young talent keeps Bucs in position to compete

Over the last three days, the Pirates traded Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole, the star player and pitcher for Pittsburgh's postseason teams from 2013-15. In return came a bundle of young talent the Bucs hope will lead them back to the playoffs in the near future.


Trading Cutch was a tough but wise decision

Once Gerrit Cole was traded to the Astros, it was clear that the Neal Huntington and the Pirates' front office were going to swallow hard and do the thing they never wanted to do -- trade Andrew McCutchen.


Cutch says goodbye to Pirates fans, Pittsburgh

Andrew McCutchen issued a heartfelt goodbye to Pirates fans and the city of Pittsburgh -- a place he called "My Home" in a classy tweet -- hours after it was revealed that he had been traded to the San Francisco Giants on Monday.

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
