Ownership & Management Ineptness/Apathy

Can't we just play our BEST players every day???


In an already crowded 4-man outfield, Jordan Luplow gets playing time!??

This news will likely be overlooked, since the Pirates won their first series in 2 weeks, but playing time decisions are a major head-scratcher.  Hurdle, who at times looks like he throws a dart blind-folded at a roster to decide who leads off, takes his outfield shuffling to a new level. The Coin-flipping Clintster has […]

The Bucs are setting records…But they’re the wrong kind of records!

Don’t look now, but the battling Bucs are just 2.5 games out of LAST place.  Remember when we thought Cinci was such a joke of a team?  We have joined them and may surpass their shortcomings.  As for “wrong records,” how about following up an epic monumental 17-1 loss on Monday with a all-time 132 […]

26-17 to Start the Season, Now 10-23 Since! Bum and Dumb are two-man mystery.

BUM & DUMB Am I on Candid Camera?  Is all of Pirate Nation getting “punked” by the Pirates skipper?  How in the world can Clint keep starting this Sean “Where’s Waldo” Rodriguez??  He even had a Bobblehead Day for him yesterday?  Rodriguez hasn’t had a hit since the Obama Administration and had a sub- .150 […]

26-17 to Start Season….9-19 Since Then. Sell, Sell, Sell, Sell!

I have to admit, that the past week has seen a little less of Hurdle’s gymnastics of a loser line up.  Chief among the observations is that Where’s Waldo Rodriguez (the guy who plays every position but the one in the batter’s box) has seen a lot less time.  Thank God.  And wonder of wonders, […]

Hurdle can’t help himself…Only Divine Intervention will keep Bucs on top!

It’s been 45 games now, and the battling Bucs still sit in the thick of things in the NL Central.  There have been some positive surprises so far, including Dickerson and Moran kick-starting this offense.  On the pitching side, strong relief from Rick Rodriguez (1.62 ERA), Kyle Crick (2.19 ERA) and Michael Feliz (2.84 ERA) […]

We can’t change the site name…but SO FAR the Bucs don’t suck!

Nick Kingham??  A perfect game for 7 innings?  Where has he been while we’ve been goofing off with Glasnow and Brault?  A part of me wishes that he would have gone through the 8th with the perfect game just to see Hurdle pull him IF it was a “save” opportunity for Rivero/Vazquez.  But the lead […]

Will the REAL Pirates please stand up

8-2 start.  Now 10 days later at 12-9.  First place has now become 2nd place.  Crazy offense has now dried up….against the Phillies to boot!.  Starting pitching has been “ok” but relief pitching, including some imposter named Vazquez, has faultered.  What will the next week hold?  Oh, and it getting close to the time to […]

Who the Hell are these guys ??

8 wins and 2 losses in the first 10 games.  The ranking of 1st in all of major league baseball in runs scored per game (6.4), batting average (.283) and on base percentage (.359).  It’s as if Kreskin has hypnotized the entire offensive team to believe they are the Yankees. As for the pitching…well, it […]

Bucs SWEEP the Tigers and begin season 3-0 ! ! !

Huh? What?  Despite the unhealthy over-managing of the Pirates by our misguided skipper, the Bucs managed to win three games straight and sit atop to division tied with Milwaukee.  OK, I know its early but hey…there have been some bright spots.  Let’s see what another week brings as we get a feel for this team’s […]
