Bucco Beat: Episode 19

The Pirates beat the Brewers!  The Pirates beat the Brewers! 
That’s right, our battlin’ Buccos concluded a ten-game home stand this afternoon with a 2-0 victory over the hated Milwaukee Brewers, earning a series split and finishing their week and a half run at PNC Park with an even 5-5 record.
Zane and Chad discuss the recent home stand, as well as the roster moves the Pirates have made in the past week.  Paul Maholm and Kevin Correia, along with Steve Pearce and Ryan Ludwick, were all placed on the DL, while Aaron Thompson, Ross Ohlendorf, and Pedro Ciriaco have all been recalled.  What a busy week!
The FFTS guys also look ahead to the Pirates’ upcoming road trip against the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros, their quick one-game makeup home stand against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and their road series against the Chicago Cubs to kick off the month of September!
September means roster expansions and call-ups, and Zane and Chad weigh in on what they’re looking forward to for the rest of the 2011 season.  Lots to get to, lots to discuss, and the guys love it! 

As Always…
Let’s Go Bucs!
