Happy Valentine’s Day from HBT

Some people say Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday.  Other people think it’s an important day on which to express one’s love for another. Still others, no matter what they think of the day’s legitimacy, dread it either because they have no love in their life or because they do but they can’t stand the expectations and anxiety Valentine’s Day causes.

I don’t know where I fall on that continuum. It’s been a rather extreme year for me, romantically-speaking.  As a lot of you know, I’m getting divorced and that’s kind of a drag.  But as some of you also know, I’m in a new relationship and that’s pretty exciting.  What I feel about love and the rituals which surround it is very different depending on when, exactly, you ask me.

But I do know this:  if everyone who has a special someone in their life got them this card, the world would be a more romantic place:

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
