A Podcast about the Pittsburgh Pirates, Sports Betting, & Sports NFT's!
NS9 Postgame Show: Pirates 8, Nationals 7
Bryan Reynolds carried the team on his back today going 3-4 with 3 HR's and 6 RBI's, but without the help of a strange rule gifting the Pirates a run they may not have secured the victory.
We discuss the first really bad outing by Mitch Keller since throwing the 2-seamer, but also how the bullpen does keep the lead and provide their first win on this roadtrip while having to pitch 5 innings. Yerry De Los Santos also gets his very first save as he was put in another big situation this year.
NS9 Postgame Show: Nationals 3, Pirates 1
Tonight's game was pretty brutal to sit through. Patrick Corbin looked like the Cy Young candidate in 2018 opposed to the pitcher who came into tonight's game with a 6.60 ERA. With 12 K's and just 1 earned run, he shut down this entire offense outside of Diego Castillo's HR.
The bullpen has been very frustrating to watch as a unit lately as well. Though, you can pass blame onto Derek Shelton and how he has been using many guys in multiple innings, but the fact is that there is not enough guys you can rely on either. Is it time to just start throwing in the lesser experienced pitchers and give them some of these big opportunities?
NS9 Postgame Show: Nationals 3, Pirates 2
With it being a spot start by Miguel Yajure, he provided the results you want even if he didn't pitch all that well. However, the play of Oneil Cruz and Hoy Park on both sides gave this team the support it needed for an early lead. Cruz homered for the first time in 2022 and Park went 2-for-4 while provided solid defense as well.
The game came crashing down when Stratton was sent out for a second inning and fell apart. Two doubles and a HR in the 8th provided the two runs the Nationals needed to win the game. We discuss why Shelton decided to send out Stratton or a second inning.
NS9 Postgame Show: Rays 4, Pirates 3
Mitch Keller continues his 2-seam tour in Tropicana Field today and the results were pretty okay. Though he gave up 3 in the 2nd, he held it together and now has a 2.98 ERA since incorporating the 2-seamer. We talk similarities in today's start from another which leaves us very encouraged.
The strikeouts continue to be a huge problem for this team as they finished with 17. Thankfully, the long ball played as Michael Chavis, Hoy Park, and Diego Castillo each hit them. Chavis just keeps continuing to impress vs. lefties while showing he is more than capable of a defender. Oh, speaking of defense, Oneil Cruz put together another solid defensive performance.
#NS9LIVE! - Pirates Take Cubs Series
It was a revenge game for Jose Quintana as he faced his former team and he didn't disappoint. It was, however, a disappointing outing for Will Crowe. Tonight, we discuss these performances as well as the bullpen usage. Should Wil Crowe have stayed in for as long as he did and was the correct move going to David Bednar over Yerri De Los Santos?
The offense stayed alive today as well. Oneil Cruz continued his streak of RBI's. Ke'Bryan Hayes hit a laser over the left field notch while also scoring the winning run in today's contest (and yes, it appears he is ok). However, it was Michael Chavis who had a big day. We tell you why it was his defense that stood out the most.
We also talk about the upcoming roster moves the Pirates will be faced with as a plethora of players are close to their return. Which guys will remain in Pittsburgh and which are likely going to be off the 40-man completely? Tune in and listen.

Best Pirates Podcast
The Pirates are completely undeserving of anyone’s love. But, like DiNardo and Tyler, some of us keep coming back for more. I’ve been a fan of the show for several years now, starting when Ryan was the co-host. I appreciate the guys keeping close tabs on the Bucs so I don’t have to!
The Pirates are bad and ownership is worse. That said, Pirates DIY media is the best around and these guys are the best of the bunch. I’ll seek DiNardo’s opinion over any cranky writer at the Post Gazette.
Calling Pirates fans
If you love the Pittsburgh Pirates than this podcast is a must listen!
Finally good Pirates Baseball talk
I can no describe how happy and excited I was to have found this podcast. Within the first 15 min of listening to an episode I knew I would be listening to these guys weekly. They are sharing intelligent Pirates baseball talk. It’s so far to listen to the General fanbase whine about payroll and the Pirates and put all the blame on the Pirates when it’s not the team but MLB issues and stays positive while talking about things.
Die hard Pirates Fan, and happy to support this podcast!!!! #LetsGoBucs
