Pirates Week in Review: August 8-August 14

This is going to be a weekly post that I thought would be a nice addition to the site. This is going to be a Pirates weekly review where I go over the results for the past seven days and link up the box scores and the recap for each of the games. I also use the lovely FanGraphs and Baseball Reference to give you the box scores and the weekly stats for the team. I will try to have this up either late Sunday night or early Monday mornings, but you know how these things go.

Here is the Bucs weekly recap for this past week:

The week started off pretty well, but it didn't end the same for the Pirates. They started off by taking 2-of-3 from the defending world champions in San Francisco but then went to Milwaukee and got swept by the Brewers. The first game of the Milwaukee series wasn't good but they could have easily won the second two, but the Pirates winning in Milwaukee isn't a sure thing by and stretch of the imagination. Lets get into the week stuff. By the way the weekly review will be a little thin the next couple of weeks, I just don't have a lot of time with work but I will get what I can into it.
