Well, it's only loosely Pirates related, but congratulations to Bobby Bonilla on his annual $1,193,248.20 check from the New York Mets. Make sure to save a little, my dude, you're only getting 17 more of em.

Will this team drop to 20+ under .500 by the end of the season?

If they were smart, they'd trade Dickerson.

They are going to trade all of the guys who they are not going to resign. They will trade Dickerson because Meadows can take his place.

Dodgers 17, Pirates 1.

Question: Do you think Hurdle lasts the season?

No, I don't blame him. I ask because at this point he is a convenient scapegoat for the evil trioka of Nutting, Coonelly and Huntington.

Still no steel sightings? Maybe check the library because he reads books. Not sure if he works in a bank though.

I loved a tweet I saw yesterday.

Apparently there’s a growing call to bring up the kids (whoever they are) from the minors since we have another lost season.

The tweeter’s response? “You should be publicly pressuring the owner to get better players. By calling for call-ups, all you’re doing is saying you’re willing to pay major league prices to watch minor leaguers play”.

Perfect!

Actually, that's what Pirates fans have been doing for a long time 2013-15 the exception.

Now they’re on a hot streak again.

Be interesting if this team is somewhat in striking distance at the deadline...what will Neal and Nutting do?

Nothing has really changed...they still need pitching.

The Pirates should hire Jim Benedict back. Give him whatever title and salary he wants.

The pitching went to hell when he left.

That’s right- leave Joe Musgrove in after he’d thrown 105 pitches on a 95 degree day.

#Hurdled.

Holy Shit!!!

But first, I was thinking the same thing, Jeems, watching on my phone/tv broadcast --- just turned on the game after church, expecting a letdown day/blowout loss after the previous run of wins, instead find things tied-up in the 8th . . . then the Brews load the bases after the walk . . . my daughter stares at me as I yell "go to the pen, you idiot!" . . . nope, Hurdle leaves Musgrove out there to twist in the heat, sure enough, bases-clearing 3-run hit . . . and as the first 2 Bucs go down meekly in the bottom of the 8th I switch off the game in disgust, another "Hurdled" loss (obviously Clint is far from their biggest problem this year, but still brings back bad memories of those past-season "it's only one game" losses here and there adding up to trapping us into wildcard losses) . . .

Now I just check the MLB Scoreboard and discover a Pirates 7 - 6, comeback win in the 10th to cap a 5-game sweep that knocks the Brewers out of first place . . .

Holy Shit!!!

A five game sweep of the Brewers is a damn good way to go into the all-star break.

It was (I was at the Friday night game...looked like it was the best attended game of the series to me- was loads of fun, even as I felt guilty giving Nutting my money).

However, the team is not fundamentally different from the team that went 9-19 right after it went 12-4 to open the season. Pitching is still a sore spot.

And even with the 6-game win streak...the Pirates are still 9 games out of first and 5.5 games out of a wild card spot.

Maybe the streak will prevent Nut from selling off...maybe not.

BEST team in baseball

6-0 in the 2nd. Homers by Polanco, Dickerson (5th in 4 games), and Marte, plus an RBI single by Moroff.

The Pirates have smashed 26 home runs in July...most in the bigs.

But this streak has been fueled by some excellent pitching too.

Now Serpico has just gone yard.

Damn I hope there’s not a reversion to mean any time soon...

Into third place and depending if the A’s can win will pass the Giants as well.

Bob Nutting was spotted earlier today:

The beat goes on...5-0 Buccos in the 4th against Kluber.

Make that 7-0.

Cruising toward 11 straight. 7-1.

Author:  franco>madden [ Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:54 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: It’s Opening Day...

Buccos apparently been eating their Wheaties. 9-2 over the Indians through 5, with Marte, Polonco and Bell gone yard. Pirates have hit 22 HR during this streak so far. :shock: Dickerson leading off seems to have helped turn on the offensive switch.

Save some for those bastards from Chicago, boys :lol:
