You can take the man out of Pittsburgh, but you can’t take Pittsburgh out of the man.
Josh really wants that batting title. If he wins it, it would be the 26th time a Pirate won the batting title, the first time a Pirate led the NL in batting since Freddy Sanchez (2006), and just the 12th Pirate to claim the award.
I don’t care how magical last season was. Whether we end up in the playoffs this season, or not, let me remind you that this season had its magic, with some of my favourite moments of the 2014 Pittsburgh Pirates season.
- Neil Walker’s Opening Day walkoff home run
- Tony Sanchez hitting a walkoff single in the bottom of the 16th inning
- Then there was Josh being Josh
- Gerrit Cole’s first HR
- Josh starting a triple play
- Andrew being 7 feet short of hitting for the cycle
- The Buccos winning two from three at Miller Park
- Andrew’s inside-the-park-home-run
- Pedro’s 100th career homer
- Russell’s 1,000th career hit (an RBI double)
- Josh’s rundowns
- Andrew starting in the ASG, Josh and Tony making it as backups
- Gregory’s 11 game hit streak to start his career
- Joshua Isaiah Harrison
To name a few
A pitcher’s REAL best friend.
*sees two teams I hate play each other* I hope they both lose
