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 the division if you still had any.   Maybe worse yet, the Bucs are 6 games out of wild card # 2 with 4 teams to jump over AAAAAAAND with San Fran and Washington TIED with the Bucs at 61-61.   No chance.  Did you happen to notice that the Cardinals were 9-1 in their last 10 games before losing tonight?  They sit just 0.5 games out of wild card #2.  Remember when the Bucs were in FRONT of the Cards?  That’s long over.  And don’t think for a minute that the Brewers, Phillies, Rockies or Dodgers are magically going to ALL go in the dumper so the Pirates can emerge as wild card #2.

The strange managerial decisions continue day to day.  No bunting with Harrison when down by ONE run with runners on 1st and 2nd yesterday and ZERO outs.  Letting the worst hitting pitcher in the league (Nova) hit in a one-run game with two runners on base tonight.

If Hurdle were a General in the military during any of the past wars….I’d be speaking a different language right now and working as a slave for food.

    I wanna Real Manager says:

    Am I wrong or doesn’t it seem like every player we trade away is better with the next team? Maybe our whole coaching staff (at least pitching and hitting coaches) suck.
    Remember J. Happ the pitcher: Better with next team. Charlie Morton: Better with next team. Gerrit Cole: Better with next team. Glasnow: Better with next team.

    Etc., etc. Don’t be surprised next year if Austin Meadows wins the triple crown and Shane Baz the Cy Young

    Rico Sanchez says:

    Don’t be surprised to see Sean (E-Rod, Where’s Waldo) Rodriguez back in the line up soon. Clint LOVES the underachievers, so he will once again find a role for his pet.

    Boneman says:

    ONE guy,,,,in this weak offensive performance tonight went 2 for 2 at the plate for the Pirates. This shortstop Hechavarria. Who does Clint pull out of the line up of all of the players?? Yep, Hechavarria?

    WTF Clint?

    Stush from Polish Hill says:

    Aretha Franklin died today. Remember her song R-E-S-P-E-C-T ? How about a little respect for the fans and people with brains?

    Ya Nutting, Huntington and Hurdle…this is for you!

    I’m going Saturday to the game. Decided tonight I’m coming in the 8th inning and just hanging for the fireworks.

    Millvale Mark says:

    Is this Archer a little better with a bow and arrow in his hand rather than a baseball?

    Just sayin’

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

    We have 40 games left. I figure if we win 35 of the last 40 we could leap-frog all of the teams in front of us!

    Go Bucs!

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

    Sorry, my meds weren’t kicking in yet.

    The Bucs are going nowhere.

    Slappy from Greenfield says:


    Sparky from Wheeling says:

    Is the season over yet? 30ish
    more games to go? Really?

    I don’t want to endure anymore.

    Unfortunately these new no name infielders will be the starters next year who replace Mercer and Harrison.

    2019 will be worse.
