On the advice of Jeemie and simply because the Pirates don't give a shit (surprise!), use this thread for the rest of the season. They've mailed it in, and so have I.

Why would you pay? That’s all Nutting cares about...the ring of the cash register. He couldn’t care less about asses in the seats.
Shame? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey- it was nice to see the youth of Pittsburgh get featured prominently on national TV...for all the wrong reasons.

https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/08/pirate ... ng-home-ru

I will say I agree with the writers of that blurb, though...the kids showed more ability and swagger than the Pirates have...

Nutting's lucky Pirate fans don't take down PNC brick by brick. As beautiful as it is, they ought to to protest this fucking mess.

This was an actual reply on the Pirates' lineup post on their FB page the other night:

Quote:
Said it before, and I’ll say it again....Where there’s a Williams, there’s a WIN!

Can’t help but laugh at all of the negativity on here, from purported “fans” who seem to think the game that doesn’t start for another four hours is some sort of automatic loss.....really? Seriously? Do these people even read their own thoughts? Are they even people?....are they the Russian bots we hear about that are permeating our social media in this day and age?

Not too late AT ALL to turn things around on the #RoadToBuctober. Won’t be the easiest road, and not too many have done it, which is gonna make it all the more satisfying when it comes to fruition!

It all starts TONIGHT!!!


Talk about delusional! :lol: :lol: :lol:

And th Bucs lost that night 8-3.

It's gotten to the point where it's just comical now.

Josh Bell finally wakes up- has hit two home runs to stoke the Pirates to an 8-4 lead.

Then Crick comes into the game.

Boom- just like that it's now 9-8 Cards.

These Pirates pass out home runs like they were Halloween treats. JESUS!

I could be wrong, but I can’t recall a stretch this awful...not even during the 20 lost seasons. Only for Bob Nutting’s Pirates would a manager be allowed to continue to fill out a lineup card through this stench...

Huntington and Hurdle won't be fired.

They are signed through 2021 and as Tim Benz of the Trib rightly pointed out...Nutting barely likes to pay people to actually work for him.

He sure as hell is not going to want to pay people who aren't working for him.

I really wish MLB had the power to strip the Nut of ownership.

It is obvious to all now he is not even trying to field a winning team.

Enjoying the game here in Anaheim tonight with my two sons ... Keller looked pretty good and it's nice to see Bell and the other bats waking up.

We only live a few minutes away and saw $9 tix on Stubhub so I thought what the hell. Came with low expectations but turns out the Angels suck even more than we do! :lol:

At least, it seems, the hitting coach is doing a good job.

Ok. I’ll give us some rare positive Pirates news. Bryan Reynolds now has enough ABs to qualify for a batting title. He currently leads the NL with a .335 avg. No NL rookie has ever won a batting title.
