Seven new All-Stars and still no Yasiel Puig.
Something odd has been happening the past few weeks in the town that's home to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Penguins _ something very strange indeed. People are talking about a professional baseball club called _ what was that name again? _ the Pittsburgh Pirates.
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.
Joe L. Brown, the general manager whose shrewd trading and expert rebuilding of the Pittsburgh Pirates' farm system resulted in two World Series championships, died after an extended illness. He was 91.
"It all feels new," says Manny Sanguillen, a catcher on the 1971 and 1979 World Series title teams who now runs a barbecue stand behind the ballpark's center field fence.
