I'm not going to blame Archer. They're just not that good and played over their heads for a while. We are seeing the true Pirates now.

Steel still not around or is he at the library reading books?

The baseball season is long enough so that your record does truly reflect what quality of team yiu have.

So the Pirates being right around .500 seems just about right.

I’m actually amazed at how good the pitching has been. The hitting has simply fallen off a cliff.

The Pirates provided some brief moments of entertainment between the (too soon) ending of the Pens playoff run and the beginning of Steelers camp. That's pretty much what I'm willing to settle for at this point. It's their niche in my Pittsburgh sports universe.

Exactly

Unlike being a Steelers fan (whose fan base reaches far and wide with no necessary ties to da burgh), if you're a Pirates fan you are almost guaranteed to also be a Steelers fan and most likely also a Pens fan. It's pretty hard to get upset about the Buccos when you have the other 2 organizations in contention seemingly every year. They are our loveable losers.

Sorry, I remember when the Buccos were relevant every year in the 70's. There was a tease in the 90's and then a few years back. I see other small market teams being successful using the right strategies. Not this fucking team. Not this fucking owner. Not this fucking management. Loveable losers my ass. They're not the '62 Mets. They're a disgrace. Fuck these clowns. Sure I'll always a Pirates fan, but certainly a disgruntled one.

Statistically the 2018 Pirates is the most average team in history....

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/we ... -the-least


Of course this will all be moot as they stumble and bumble down the stretch and win only 5 games in September.

Just saw this.

No team sticks out...either positively or negatively...as little as the Pirates stick out.

Maybe Steel can think of a trophy for us for that!

The Bob Nutting Award!

Not good enough win anything significant, but just good enough to sell a few tickets!

Just be mediocre, baby!
