“We are the zanies of sorrow. We are clowns whose hearts are broken.”

No Pirates fans, Oscar Wilde did not have yinz in mind when he wrote those words, but he probably wouldn’t be surprised at the uncanny parallels it draws to your faithfulness if he were around toda

The Pittsburgh Pirates’ 2016 roster was supposed to contain plenty of bright spots.

The pitching staff, led by ace Gerrit Cole, was going to be one of the best in the National League.

As much as 80 percent of the Pirates starting rotation could be different next season. Only Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon are locks to return from the 2015 crew. With three spots potentially open, the Pirates could look to add veterans through waivers, free agency and trades. Here are some potential in-house solutions.

With the season behind them, it’s time to look back on the Pirates’ best 10 wins of 2016.

Believe it or not, this list was harder to make than the worst losses countdown. Plenty of great games, including Jung-Ho Kang’s return in St.

A win on the final day of the season was not enough for the St. Louis Cardinals, who beat the Pirates 10-4 but missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

On Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates completed their final home game of the season. In the past few years, there was palpable buzz around the ballpark as the seasons shifted from summer to fall. The Pirates were in it, PNC Park was full, and the games were important.

In 2016, September baseball has been much different. Pittsburgh was officially eliminated on Tuesday night, but, practically, illusions of contention faded several weeks prior.

As Nuke Laloosh in “Bull Durham” once said: sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.

Well, sometimes the rain makes you tie.

John Jaso made history on Wednesday night as he hit for the first cycle at PNC Park. The Pirates first baseman also drove in five runs in Pittsburgh’s 8-4 victory over Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs.

Jaso singled in the first inning, clubbed a three-run homer in the fourth, roped an RBI double in the fifth, and capped off his evening with an RBI triple into the North Side Notch in the seventh i

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

When the Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their general manager in 2014, it seemed like a temporary move. The former Carolina Hurricanes GM would spend his two years in Pittsburgh, and then hand the keys to Jason Botterill; the man whom several people thought deserved the job in the first place.

Exactly four months after the Pittsburgh Penguins raised the Stanley Cup in San Jose, the new NHL season got underway. While the Penguins will look to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as champions, the season will be sure to deliver plenty of twists and surprises during the regular season.

For years, the accomplishments of the Penn State men’s basketball team have been few and far between. Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.
