Michael Weiner, the plain-speaking, ever-positive labor lawyer who took over as head of the powerful baseball players' union four years ago and smoothed its perennially contentious relationship with management, died Thursday, 15 months after announcing he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He was 51.
M-V-P: Most Versatile Pirate.
McCutchen won the National League honor by a surprisingly wide margin Thursday. Cabrera took the AL prize for the second straight year by a comfortable gap over Mike Trout.
All those who marvel at Miguel Cabrera can only wonder what he might've done this year if completely healthy.
Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen and Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera both coasted Thursday to Most Valuable Player awards.
MTV Networks and Major League Baseball said Monday they are collaborating on a weekly 30-episode series that melds pop culture and baseball. Ortiz and Pittsburgh Pirates All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen are both executive producers of the series, set to begin next spring around the start of the new season.
Miguel Cabrera has a chance to repeat as AL MVP after being named one of three finalists for the award in voting by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
Wacha and the St. Louis bullpen made Matt Holliday's two-run homer stand up. Trevor Rosenthal worked around a two-out walk in the ninth, retiring Andrew McCutchen on a popup for his first postseason save.
Pedro Alvarez hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 on Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in best-of-five NL division series.
Andrew McCutchen and the Pittsburgh Pirates are riding high from their first postseason victory in 21 years.
The Pittsburgh Pirates went 21 years between playoff games. The wait will be significantly shorter this time around. Russell Martin homered twice, Francisco Liriano was dominant for seven innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates roared past Cincinnati for a 6-2 victory in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night.
They've got the best modern ballpark in the country, a gem on Pittsburgh's North Shore with spectacular views of the city and a bridge you can walk over to see a game. It may be the only place in baseball where french fries come inside a sandwich rather than next to it.
As the season's second half gets set to begin Friday, an early forecast for baseball's biggest individual awards:
Seven new All-Stars and still no Yasiel Puig.
The last time the Pittsburgh Pirates had five All-Stars, there was no designated hitter, baseballs were made of horsehide and the major leagues had 24 teams.
"To even be mentioned and to be in it with him is definitely an honor for me," said McCutchen, who grew up emulating Ken Griffey Jr.
"Especially considering the numbers I had all-around definitely were down from last year when I ended up being in third place," he said.
