Mercifully, it's finally over!

Mediocrity at its finest…


State of the Pirates – 2018 Final Edition

It’s time for everyone’s favorite edition of the State of the Pirates – the last one! Thankfully, the 2018 Pittsburgh Pirates baseball season is over, and the NHL drops the puck this week!  Win-win!  They Bucs exceeded expectations from the 2017 season, but the result is the same – no post-season.  The Pirates finished the […]

THE GHOST WRITER HAS JOINED

To all of my future www.piratessuck.com fans: Everyone thought the train wreck in August was on the South Side, when a train derailment managed to exploit a single point of failure in Port Authority’s Light Rail System (“T”) by falling onto tracks at Station Square. Well, it was – but it turns out there was […]

E-Rod is gone!

Clint’s stepson is gone and we only have to pay him for 30 more games. $213,000 to go. If I knew that this would have actually been possible, I would have set up a Go Fund Me page some time ago to raise the money for Bob Nothing.

You heard it here first. Stick a fork in Pirates season!

  Don Meredith used to say, And let’s not forget… Doesn’t matter which line you like more, as they are ALL true when it comes to the Pirates chances of getting to the playoffs.  As it stands now, the Bucs are 10 games behind the Cubs in the division, so stop those thoughts of winning […]

I’m HAPPY that Bucs have traded for Starter and Reliever, But for the Love of God…ENOUGH of Where’s Waldo Error Prone and hitless Rodriguez !!

Chris Archer from the Rays to the Bucs.  Check!  (Decent starting pitcher acquired).  Keone Kela acquired from Rangers.  Check!  (A workable arm added to the bullpen).  Meadows, Glasnow and prospects gone.  Oh well, Hurdle didn’t like Rookie of the Month and .298 hitter Meadows so might as well trade him if Clint prefers .171 Luplow […]

Nutting: The ONE person most upset with the winning streak?? Maybe? Likely?

All was set just two weeks ago.  The Bucs had a mid-year swoon going on and Huntington laid down the expectations that we have to get on a major winning streak to justify being BUYERS and not SELLERS by the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.  He felt confident that his message was clear…and logical given […]

Note to self…

I keep seeing on the Allegheny Health Network commercials that I could see the same doctor as the pros. Wow, that sounds good until I watch the commercials. No thanks Dr. Demeo. When the commercials feature Cervelli and Harrison as role models, I’ll pass and call Dr. Kevorkian instead. At least he doesn’t drag things […]

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 […]
