Hurdle is funny though.

I don't hate Clint, and every team's fans bitch about their manager, but that's pure Nutting-covering BS. The only thing the 2018 Pirates haven't given up on is the race to challenge Cinci for the NL Central cellar. :cry:

It was certainly a more enjoyable (partial) season than expected, but as others have said, the time has arrived for the annual pivot away from the Buccos to focus on the real Pittsburgh sports activities across the street ...

What’s hysterical about Hurdle’s comments is when you juxtapose them with Neal’s...which were ALL about giving up on 2018 and preparing for 2019.

I haven't watched pirate baseball since the 90's debacle (I had just recently moved to NYC and was watching with my brother. We actually called a life long friend in pgh to get us playoff tickets during game time, when it happened). Actually, l only watched peripherally Yankees baseball since the 90's. So I haven't been able to see Cutch really play other than highlights.

Now I get to see him with the yanks sans hair whenever I'm bored with nothing to do when they air games. Yay?

My phone stopped notifying me with final score a few weeks ago. Most likely some update happened and I need to turn them back on but I like to think my phone just said fuck it. It is a smartphone.

They really are a poorly run team. I wish Cuban had been able to buy the team and make it a destination for players rather than a developmental squad for other teams to pick players up from.

5 games back in the loss column.

They have a better chance of finishing over .500 than win a wild card slot though...unless Hurdle has another 2007 innhim.

Glad you said "almost assured." They're only two games over .500 now.

I’m hoping we manage to be eliminated after the Phillies are.

13-4 Brewers in the 8th.

I believe that’s all she wrote for postseason if we lose today, but four more wins in the last eight clinches a winning season.

Being above .500 matters very much 8-)

Had a chance to shake the hand of Trevor Williams dad last night down at the yard. A true gentleman and so cool to see the smile on his face while watching his son absolutely dealing yet again.


We have the young arms in place to make a run at things again in 19.

Trevor Williams has been the best pitcher in baseball the last half of the season.
Nutting and Huntington are salivating over the prospect haul return they’ll get in the trade...
