The Pittsburgh Pirates needed only 36 minutes Saturday to sell out their April 9 home opener against the Cincinnati Reds, the first regular-season game in PNC Park. They also sold out five other regular-season games, plus two exhibitions - a total of eight sellouts, more than they had in most seasons at Three Rivers Stadium. Also selling out were a June series against the Cleveland Indians and fireworks night promotions April 11 against Cincinnati and June 23 against Montreal.

President Barack Obama's motorcade passed in view of PNC Park in the eighth inning, and military helicopters buzzed over the ballpark all day. Obviously, something big was going on in Pittsburgh. It wasn't the Reds-Pirates game, where a deserted ballpark matched the nearly deserted downtown only a bridge-length away. Bronson Arroyo limited Pittsburgh to one run over seven innings and the Cincinnati Reds completed their second sweep of the plummeting Pirates in less than a month, winning, 4-1, yesterday to push the Pirates closer to a 100-loss season.

PITTSBURGH - You have to see it to bereave it. And if you do, it will make you realize just how fortunate Phillies fans have been for the last decade. The comatose state of the baseball team from the western end of Pennsylvania is one of the saddest sports stories of the 21st century. The Pittsburgh Pirates, a franchise that employed Honus Wagner, Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, and Danny Murtaugh, has been an unwatchable mess for nearly two decades. The team that beat the New York Yankees in an unforgettable 1960 World Series and captured two more titles by beating the Baltimore Orioles in 1971 and 1979 has now gone a major-league record 19 straight seasons without posting a winning record.

You don't think a ballpark can electrify a city and the people in it? Listen then to the gospel according to 37-year-old Bobby Dennis. "I am just so grateful for this," said Dennis, marveling at the Jewel of the Allegheny, PNC Park, the new home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. "I get so tired of people downing Pittsburgh. This is finally a hope for our city. " Listen then to the words of 68-year-old Don Miller. "Those light towers remind me so much of Forbes Field," Miller said, gazing up at them from the Roberto Clemente Bridge.

A disagreement between the Pittsburgh Pirates and a restaurant might keep old scoreboard numbers, seats and windows from Forbes Field out of the Pirates' new ballpark. The Pirates played at Forbes Field before their move in 1970 to Three Rivers Stadium. Three Rivers is soon to be demolished and the Pirates will move this season to the new PNC Park. The Pirates would like to display Forbes Field items at PNC Park when it opens, but the Pirates and the Allegheny Club restaurant disagree on who owns the memorabilia.

CINCINNATI - Needing a starting pitcher who could better preserve the bullpen and not wanting to push the development of their prospects, the Phillies went outside the organization to fill their rotation. Kevin Correia joined them Monday at Great American Ball Park after signing a major-league contract for the remainder of the season. A 34-year-old righthander with 12 years of big-league experience, Correia will start Friday in the series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

PITTSBURGH - With one uninspiring performance after another, especially at the plate, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg and his team have been fielding a lot of questions lately about the team's effort and energy. Sandberg and company insist that both are there. But the offense surely isn't. In another subpar performance with the bats, the Phillies continued their slide Saturday with a 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. After moving to within 31/2 games of first place with a fifth consecutive win on June 20, the Phillies have lost 12 of their last 15. They now need a telescope to view National League East leader Atlanta.

PITTSBURGH - You look out from home plate and you see the hotels and office buildings popping from the blue-and-white background of an early July sky. You see a lush green outfield that appears to run into the river. And you see a steel suspension bridge that connects the two, the downtown skyline, equal parts glass modernity and bricks-and-mortar industry, and the sparkling stadium that would be one of the most impressive venues in the majors if it could only attract a regular audience of baseball fans.

PITTSBURGH - When you win the way the Phillies have won the last five seasons, the little mistakes not only don't add up, they often go unnoticed. When you lose the way the Phillies lost Saturday and Sunday to the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park, the little mistakes no longer are hidden. They are asked about, they are analyzed, and they are haunting. That's bound to happen more in 2012 than it did a year ago, because the big bats of Ryan Howard and Chase Utley are not here to serve as erasers.

As of Thursday, the Kansas City Royals had the youngest opening-day roster in Major League Baseball, with an average age of 27 years and 155 days, according to Stats L.L.C. The Houston Astros were the youngest in the National League, at 27 years and 301 days. Those baby 'Stros were closely followed by the Atlanta Braves: 28 years and 99 days. The oldest MLB roster? That would be those New York Yankees (31 and 222 days) - and that's not even counting Andy Pettitte, who will be 40 in June.

THE PHILLIES' lineup that was posted yesterday had a couple interesting twists, both involving rightfielder Domonic Brown. The order of importance is optional, depending on how closely one has been monitoring the online trade-rumors bazaar, where there is literally something for everybody. One was that he was batting second for just the fourth time this year. The other was that he was even still wearing a Phillies uniform, considering the late surge of gossip yesterday that suggested, contrary to previous speculation, that he was involved in the talks with the Houston Astros for outfielder Hunter Pence.

PITTSBURGH - Even before yesterday, Roy Halladay could see a difference in the Phillies since Chase Utley rejoined the team. Earlier in the year, the veteran pitcher had compared the second baseman to Yankees captain Derek Jeter, known nearly as much for his professionalism and intangibles as his batting average and on-base percentage. So it didn't take a 3-for-5 day or a tremendous diving play to cement Halladay's respect. "You know he's always going to run balls out, he'll be diving for balls, he's going to give you the best at-bat every time," Halladay said after he and Utley helped the Phillies snap a four-game losing streak with a 7-3 victory over the Pirates at PNC Park yesterday afternoon.

PITTSBURGH - If the Phillies could not beat the Pirates while Cole Hamels spun a one-hitter for eight innings, the odds were understandably longer Saturday. The Phillies' comatose offense creates a thin margin for error these days and it was magnified with Kyle Kendrick asked to make a spot start. So the final score, 6-3 in favor of the Pirates, came as no surprise. The Phillies have scored seven runs in their last four games - all losses - against starters named Jason Marquis, John Lannan, Jeff Karstens, and Charlie Morton.
