The 2019 MLB Season has officially wrapped up! Ryan & DiNardo discuss the Word Series while talking about the 2020 World Series Odds where the Astros & Yankees are favored.
Lastly, we also give an in-depth look at the new GM and Managerial search from the Pirates based on the latest news & rumors.
Where did everybody go? We are as amazed as you knowing that today on 10/29/2019 the Pittsburgh Pirates are without Clint Hurdler, Ray Searage, Neal Huntington, and Frank Connelly. Today the Pirates announced the firing of Neal Huntingon and then introduced their new President, Travis Williams (Not Trevor Williams).
This episode is basically Ryan & DiNardo talk... Read more
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Fanboy Awards.

Not only do we bring you awards, but we also provide the live entertainment as 1408 performs their latest single 'Respirator.'
Check us out on Twitch every Thursday @ ... Read more
Welcome to the 2019 World Series, Nationals & Astros! It's the early offseason so you know we have to talk a little about the upcoming World Series. Who is looking forward to this matchup? Well, we are.
Next up, it was released that the MLB has a major proposal to change the landscape of MiLB. With removing 42 teams, improving facilities and wages, realigning the teams, and changing the draft, we discuss our take... Read more
Pretend today is Sunday and everything is normal! Ok, so we may or may not have released this on our regular time but it's just as average as ever. We start of by talking the latest of the MLB Playoffs. How about those Nationals!?!?
From here we transition into the latest on the Pirates managerial search - just in case Ryan doesn't lock down the position. What names have been mentioned, what pattern's we are... Read more
Pirates Playoff's SZN! As in, all the ex-Pirates are playing in the playoffs, but why is this sooooo annoying to hear about every day? Seriously, there is no reason to hear about all the ex-Pirates in the playoffs right now and you need to stop.
We also talk about the Searage/Prince firing and how pathetic Searage came off with what he said about his firing and tenure.
Time to take one final review of The... Read more
It's the Blass Episode, but first we recognize the loss of Jason Rollison this past week. We may not have known Jason personally, but we reflect on what he meant for us and challenged us.
With the final three games of the season, the Pirates did a great job sending off Steve Blass (especially Kevin Newman to walk it off Friday night!) We play soundbytes throughout the show of Steve.
Now the news everyone i... Read more
We open up with some banter but the mood quickly turns as we discus the Felipe situation. DiNardo gets pretty fired up about a few things that has really bothered him.
As hard as it is still, we try to talk how this does effect the Pirates plans heading into 2020 and what it may mean for Neal Huntington.
We take to twitter to answer some questions!
Check out our website:
What three moves would you make to get this team back to contending? With no payroll restrictions Ryan & DiNardo play GM to see if it can be done.
We answer some twitter questions and find out that DiNardo appreciates Jalapeno Hannah's handbag and Ryan likes Jacoby Brissett.
Lastly, we play the newly infamous game - 'How Many Bucs Do You Give'
Check us out at:
Ryan & DiNardo start the show out by discussing the latest - a fight between Crick & Vazquez. Ohhhh brother...
We also bring on Cory Giger to discuss Michael Ryan and a little bit of Oneil Cruz.
First of all, how is it September already?
Anyway, Ryan & DiNardo return for another episode. DiNardo talks some on his trip back to PA and what is awaiting for him now in Jacksonville.
As we begin our Pirates talk, we touch on this latest 4 game sweep of the Rockies and how its clearly counterproductive for what needs to happen. Surely we jest, but also no. The Rockies have now surpassed them in the draf... Read more
IT'S THE LIVE PODCAST! We are joined by Joey Bag Of Donuts and Tim Taggert as we discuss what is on our minds. We go into Mitch Keller, Cervelli, the front office, and more.
Welcome to the North Shore Nine, sponsored by Xanax. This week Ryan couldn't make the show (probably at home drinking beer and playing video games) so joining DiNardo will be friend of the show - Joey Bag Of Donuts!
Where do we start? Well Neal Huntington spoke words. Strings of meaningful words together elude Neal and we are here to break them down. Simulations, Volquez's, & Excitement!
Joey &... Read more
Fun show everyone. The Pirates are now 4-24 since the break. Why should everybody be happy right now? Well we will tell you.
Also, Jim Rosati from North Side Notch joins to air some grievances.
That trade deadline was something. Ok, let's be honest...Felipe not being traded was a good thing. The only moves being Lyles and Dickerson was a bit shocking. How does NS9 feel about them? Let's just say DiNardo goes on a rant. It may or may not include international money.
Don't let people give you false information on Nick Kingham.
Jung Ho DFA'd. Don't let people give you false informati... Read more
It's just days before the trade deadline and the Pirates are bad. Our analysis could and probably should just stop there, but we go a little deeper.
This week we talk about Keone Kela's 2 game suspension and some hot takes about it.
Of course, we dive into Felipe Vazquez and the trade rumors swirling around him. Will he even get traded? If so, where will it be? Do the Pirates stop with him? What is in... Read more
46-52. The Pirates are officially 5.5 games back in the Wild Card race and 7.5 back from the Division. Today, Huntington said, "We're approaching this deadline optimistic that we want to do everything we can to get this team to the postseason."
Sell. Sell. Sell.
There appear to be many team in the NL still technically in the hunt. This could make this deadline more of a sellers market. Compound tha... Read more
We introduce a new NS9LIVE segment called 'Down On The Farm' where we talk and give our biweekly updates on players within the Pirates farm system. Today Baseball America released their updated Top 30 Prospects, so what a day to begin.
Get the new FaceApp? DiNardo sure did!! How do you feel about your information being available now? We ran a poll and the numbers say a lot about the way society reacts today. Rega... Read more
It's the series after the All-Star Break which means We Don't Win Anymore!
This week we talk about Josh Bell and Home Run Derby. First off, Josh Bell gave us a good showing however it just was not good enough to advance. Though, is the Home Run Derby back?? Ryan & DiNardo talk about the new format and just how much they loved it. What a showing by Joe & Young Vlad as well.
Last week we discusse... Read more
