They were hitting at an unsustainable rate. They were going to go into a quiet period.

Hopefully it’s not a three month quiet period...

At this point, I'll settle for reasonably exciting baseball between the end of Penguins season and the beginning of Steelers camp. The nice thing about the last couple years is the Buccos have really only had to occupy a little over a month of my attention. The not so nice part is, they've not been unbelievably successful at it. You only had one job, Pirates...

Analytics and replay have essentially removed the SB as a tactical piece of most MLB offenses.

Same here. Buster Olney wrote a good piece a few weeks back about why the SB is disappearing from the game.

Jake Arrieta does a far better job of owning the Pirates than Bob Nutting.

No luck with Philly teams tonight.

Last 9 games Pirates are 3-6, including a game they won 1-0. No team makes a living winning 1-0 games. Could easily be 2-7.
In their other 2 wins they scored 7 and 10 runs respectively.

In their six losses they've scored 2 runs or less, getting shut out twice.
Two losses were by 2-0 and 2-1 scores.
While the pitching has worsened it's really the lack of offense that's been the issue lately.

Prediction 1: If the Pirates continue to slump we'll soon be hearing about J-Hay's injury as the turning point of the season.

Prediction 2: Those who support Bob Nutting will willingly buy into that theory, as they did about the absences of Kang & Marte during the 2017 season.

Especially the two errors that allowed the Phillies to bat around when they blew the game open.

Think about it...the early run was fueled almost exclusively by an unsustainable amount of offense. The poor middle relief...the average starting pitching...and the abysmal fielding...were all there.

As soon as the hitting came back to earth...this of course was what you were going to see.

Bling has a point, of course, since the offensive funk almost perfectly coincided with JHay going out. But even before JHay went out, the signs were there...like Polanco having a 1.000+ OPS...but a batting average that was flirting with the Mendoza Line (Marte too, although not quite to the same degree).

Agree - I think that’s like 7 comeback wins or something like that?

I think It’s time for Brault to go down. Disappointing as I thought he would stick. Hard to believe with all of NH’s emphasis on young pitching there is only 1 LH SP in their plans? Crazy. That’s why they should focus on drafting hitting and trade for pitching.
