Great start to the year by the Pirates pitching staff. Apart from one game against St. Louis, the Pirates have been superb all year on the hill.

As of right now, the Pirates' pitching has thrown a total of 60 innings, giving up 54 hits, 26 walks, with 37 K's, 18 earned runs allowed, for a team ERA of 2.70. That ranks third in the majors behind only San Diego and St. Louis.

If this doesn't show the importance of good starting pitching and it's ability to keep you in games, nothing will.

Spot on, since the Pirates are ranked near the bottom in MLB in runs, runs per game, batting average, OBP, and slugging. The offense has been decent but the Buccos have been absolutely stymied in 2 games, skewing the figures a bit, but the point is valid: good pitching wins, even with not-so-good hitting.

I knew that they were doing well, but when you see the totals put out their it really is impressive isn't it.

Still very early ---- I hope we can continue to say that for weeks to come. Thanks for showing us that Bucfan.
