Finally A Win!!!!

Today marked the first time the Bucs have won in a week.  The Pirates haven't had any complete blowouts besides Matt Cain's near perfect game, so they look like they are still competing with the NL West teams.  The Bucs will face off against the Diamondbacks starting tomorrow.

To celebrate the win today, I'm going to show off some of my recent purchases.

Kevin Correia pitched another great game to start the season.  If he continues to pitch like this through July, he may earn his second All-Star game as he picked up the win today and had his ERA sitting at 1.50 while allowing only 3 hits over 6 innings pitched.  The card pictured above may look familiar to those that read my blog regularly.  That's because Julie from Things Are Funner Here sent me the red swatch version of this card in a previous trade.
Garrett Jones had a solo HR to put the Pirates up 2-0 in the 2nd inning which was the game winning run.
Joel Hanrahan came in to close the game out in the 9th and had some control issues, but earned his first save of the season.  WOW! It feels good to get a win today.

As stated above, the Pirates will be traveling to Arizona to face off against the D'backs tomorrow.  Don't forget to cheer on the Bucs for a chance to win free cards.

The cards given away for this series will include future pitching superstar Trevor Bauer's Bowman rookie card, a Dan Haren 2010 red parallel (numbered123/299), and a Curt Schilling Flair Jersey Heights white jersey card.  Root for the Pirates to win the series and you could win free cards!  Let's Go Bucs!!!!


  1. Let's go Bucs. You can Dooooo It. Beat the DBacks.

  2. There's only one way that I could root against my beloved D-Backs and that's if doing so might win me some sweet D-Backs cards. So...I guess...I'll say it...Go ...Bucs.

  3. Go Bucs!!! My Giants need some help right now and some L's for the Dbacks will definitely help.
