It's Spring and with that comes pessimism!

Are you ready to be disappointed, again?

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 […]


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 […]
