    Two outs now on a nice play by Rosales.

    hehe.

    Here's another one for you. Do you think there was an abundance of piracy on the 3 rivers throughout history? If not...why in the world are they called the "pirates"?

    Game over!! Reds win!!

    Hopefully haven't used up their entire series hit quota in this one game, LOL

    Hmmmm, good question about the rivers. There did used to be a big fort right there where the rivers meet (I saw where it used to be when I visited Pittsburgh earlier this summer) so there could have been some random boat battles in the past. Maybe some Pirates got bored and decided to play some baseball when they weren't busy stealing and causing trouble, LOL

    The Alleghenys were accused of stealing a player from the American Association. They denied wrongdoing, but mockingly called themselves the Pirates after that.

    If this club (the one including Janish at short, Rolen at third, Stubbs in center and Gomes starting) had started the season, the Reds would be over .500 and maybe contending. Life is sometimes very cruel.

    I just think it's interesting that this team has a shot to exceed last years win total. I don't think anyone expected that two months ago.

    They have a real good shot. Five more with the fast fading Pirates and three with the equally fast fading Astros. Also three with the Cards who will probably have clinched the Division by next week. Whether this fast finish means anything towards next season remains to be seen?

    I think it's interesting that the Pirates have already clinched last place. You know it's a bad year when you're 13 GB the 5th place team.

    The Pirates as a group right know are playing like they don't even care. They're one dead team to play

    Seriously? That's hilarious. I was only joking, but that's great.

    And then they made everyone who didn't agree with them walk the plank into the rivers. :

    I imagine Francisco is going to get a long look from the Reds. That single was hit so hard the RFer nearly had it skip by him.

    Yes, as BCubb2003 said, the Pittsburg (no "h" at the end) Alleghenys, as the club was originally known from their inception in 1882 until 1890, had a reputation for "raiding" other clubs for their talent. Hence the nickname "Pirates", and the moniker stuck.

    That would be Fort Duquesne and/or Fort Pitt. Fort Duquesne was a French stronghold during the French and Indian War. It was razed and abandoned by French forces, who fled before the advancing British Army under General John Forbes (the man after whom Forbes Field was named). The British then built the larger and stronger Fort Pitt on the site. The remains of Fort Duquesne and Fort Pitt can be found at Point State Park, commonly referred to as "The Point".
