Welcome to Dr. Strangeglove. Here are a few tips for navigating around the site. First, check out the Galleries tab. There you will find larger versions of the images in the featured slider under Recent Posts Gallery, and you can connect to the respective post for each image by clicking on it. This isn't a "who, what, when" type of site, but I am definitely interested in the why, so you will find lots of interesting pieces by clicking on the Analysis tab. There are game notes of course, for both the Pirates, their minor league affiliates, and occasionally other items of interest. The offseason brings prospect lists, hot stove league action and a look at Pirates' history and the Hall of Fame. Please enjoy the site, and feel free to use the Contact Us tab to send an email, as well as comment to your heart's content.
Josph Gerard has been a follower of the Pittsburgh Pirates since he first saw Roberto Clemente in his awesome vest uniform. While he has been fortunate enough to witness all of the Pirates' championships in the modern era, his biggest regret in life is that he was still in diapers when Maz hit the home run to beat the hated Yankees.
