The Pittsburgh Pirates season is over and it's now time to grade everyone's season, starting with the rotation.
The Pittsburgh Pirates season wasn't successful in the conventional sense but it did beat many fan's expectations. Now there is hope that things may get much better very soon.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired Chris Archer. He's considered an ace but he's been everything but as of late. Now it's the Pirates job to fix him.
Joe was tied up with the Jets this week, so James was joined on the show by his dad and the Spurtability historian: Steven Creange (1:58 - 3:05). James introduces and gives out the inaugural Josh Hader/Sean Newcomb/Trea Turner Tweet of the Week award (3:05 - 7:32).
