On The Farm: Pirates Having Issues on the Road

Every week Die by the Blade will take a look at how things are going on the farm with the Portland Pirates.  We will discuss their games from the previous week and take a look at the team leaders.  We will post a three stars of the week and ask for your comments on the team.

The Pirates are still looking for their first road after dropping two road games this past weekend.  Losses to Manchester and Providence are showing how much trouble this team is having keeping games close on the road.  The only bright spot of the weekend is their win over the Wolf Pack.
