It's Spring and with that comes pessimism!

Are you ready to be disappointed, again?

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, absent Waldo the Bucs actually won a series for the first time in a month.  Imagine that!  Still though, seems every game the pitching either falters on the front end or by the bullpen.  And we all know that IF a reliever goes a scoreless 7th or 8th, the loser mentality of Clint will always try to push the pitcher change envelope with someone to blow up the game the next inning.

As Jim Cramer would say, the Pirates will Sell, Sell, Sell, Sell at the trade deadline on July 31st.  Cervelli, Harrison, Mercer, and others will be on the chopping block.  And fans will once again realize that while Nutting and Huntington have tried to finesse their off-season moves of Cutch and Cole as being BOTH a short-term and a long-term betterment of the team, will realize that the Bucs are increasingly not in a position to win now or later.

35-36 record today.  If the SELL happens, will that record turn to 72-90 at the end?

    Speaking of the Hurdle mentality of always gravitating toward the loser way of thinking, Voltaire said it best: “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

    You’re Welcome!

    Stush from Polish Hill says:

    Under-achievers this year: Polonco, Waldo Rodriguez, Taillon, Nova (until past two starts), Rivero/Vazquez (Rivero ok but Vazquez sucks)

    Over-achievers: Dickerson, Moran. Cervelli

    Box Seat Sal says:

    Watched the fathers and sons run the bases today and wished that Polonco and Marte were taking notes!

    Optimistic Ollie (bi-polar: so also Pessimistic Ollie) says:

    2 out of 3 baby! The Bucs are back and coming home for a winning streak!

    Pops McCoy says:

    Bubble Man has a way of cooling off the hottest hitters. He destroyed Frazier by giving him little time in the line up that sent him back to the minors. He’s cooling Meadows now by this bullshit 4 man outfield.

    Luigi from Harmony Township says:

    Hey Pops…then the inverse would be that he’ll “get guys hot” by playing them a lot. How’d that work out with SRod? 162? If you can’t hit your weight its no good!

    Pessimisic Ollie (bi-polar so aka Optimistic Ollie) says:

    Got to thinking. No way are the Bucs finishing over .500. Too many holes in the team and more holes to come late July at the deadline.

    Newspaper John from Wheeling says:

    This Josh Bell may end up being OK. I’d say cut the dreadlocks but as soon as McCutchen did that he got his girlfriend pregnant and was never the same. I say go with it Josh. Happy Juneteenth.

    Thad From Cali says:

    Newspaper, I kind of agree. Why do I think that he will be end up a Dodger?

    Slappy from Greenfield says:

    I’m confused. Why is there any chatter on this group of misfit toys? The Pirates must be doing something with subliminal hypnotism to get you to react. OK. Now back to Big Bang Theory re-runs with my IC Light.
