Enjoy the great season, though almost none of you deserve it

You sure showed us... :?

I don't necessarily support Hacksaw's trolling but his use of 'herp derp' is pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Bullshit.

Everyone here "deserves" whatever season the Pirates give us.

You had us winning the World Series in March, and were all giddy with your "best team in baseball" declaration at the All Star Break. For all your crowing, the Pirates ended 2015 the exact same way they ended 2014...with an embarrassing one and done shutout loss...that's now a grand total of two runs scored their last four postseason games.

Just because the rest of us would like to let the season play out before we start crowning the Pirates "the best" of anything does not make us lesser fans.

Enjoy the roller coaster and stop trying to pretend you're better than everyone.

4-0 is great and I've enjoyed every moment of these wins.

But guess what?

The last time the Pirates went 4-0 was 2003.

They finished that season in fourth place with a 75-87 record.

For all the things they've done great so far...

Liriano is walking everybody. Niese sucks. We all know what we have in Mr. Nibbles...that's 3/5 of the rotation that is questionable right now.

There is still a question of where the power will come...I don't think we can count on lineup optimization to get us all the way there.

Still 156 games to go...there's a LOT of baseball to be played.

Just enjoy each game as it's played, stop being such an enormous douchebag, and no one will have any problems with you.

You stopped posting because you acted like a retard all season and I called you out on it. Then, when everything (and I mean EVERYTHINGGG) I said came true....scratch that.....Let's give this the proper context...

Then, when I pretty much did the equivalent of ripping your mouth open and shitting down your throat a million times, you tucked your tail between your legs in embarrassment and stopped posting.

Have someone mentor you when watching these games. Ask them what certain things happen and at what times. Read the posts on this site. Form a rational opinion based on analysis of statistics, the eye test, and your own "gut" feeling. Then, maybe people wouldn't be so fucking ann....wait...wait....I'm just going to stop.

Usually, I'd give a retard like you the benefit of using this as a learning experience. But no. No. You're just too fucking stupid. You won't learn anything. You're just some fucking stupid 54-year-old yinzer who counts down to 5 pm when he can get out of the machine factory to drink his beer and make fun of "that colored on TV."

You know nothing. I know a lot more than you do. Stop posting your reactionary, tired, useless bullshit. You bring nothing here, to society, and likely your family as a whole. It's been a good time around these parts without you. Then again, your posts are an adventure in themselves. Either way, I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it.

We're all on the bandwagon, moron. After all, this is Pirates Off-season Roster - Strongest in Years.

This may have been the best team to start 4-1 to a season than I can even begin to remember....in years!?

Well ... I get some things right but I was dead wrong about the walker deal and neise.
The Pirates O is OK now and I think cutch will pick it up
The problem is pitching and the super 2 stuff. The cards stay even as they spend money to fix issues and develop,players really well. Things go wrong and we won't spend or bring guys up to fix the issue.

In retrospect thinking you could beat the cards, mutts, Dodgers and Cubs with Coke, liriano. Noise, Nicosia and Locke was stupidity. Too many lefties and too much mediocrity or pure crap.

Should have been Cole, liriano, taillon, a top FA and another of the young guys.

If meadows is the real deal p. I am all for trading cutch especially if we can keep,polanco and Marte. But, it still doesn't solve the problem of weak hitting 1b and no one to pitch with Cole and maybe taillon. They have been fucking around with that for years now

But now Cole in on the DL for likely longer than the 15 days if reports are correct. Shit's bad now, but with that shit is about to get far worse. Who is the stopper? Hopefully Taillon but we'll see.

Serious question. Do you happen to be either Cam Bonifay or David Littlefield in real life?

Serious question. Have you ever thought the Pirates had a legit shot at a World Series title since 92?

Only once. After the Wild Card win vs. Cincinnati in 2013. Then Wainwright and Wacha happened.

If that 2013 Pirates offense had been paired with our 2015 pitching staff, they woulda gone all . . . the . . . way.

Also thread-bump for irony, and another chance to wish continuing bad post-season fortune upon the Cubs forever . . .

It was a joke question.

Yes, I thought they had a good shot last year to win the WS, not as strong as the early 90's clubs.

I never had faith in that early 90s team to get it done in the post-season. I'm not sure about this decade's team, because we couldn't get past the WC game 2 of the 3 years. I did think our best chance was last year, honestly, BUT...we had to play the WC. If we could have won the division, it might have been a different story.

Woulda coulda. Can't go there. You do what you do. 98 wins was the fucking shit, it just wasn't enough last year, and then we had to face a pitcher we couldn't figure out until this year.

1979 seems so far away, but it's all we have now.

If they had played all out to get the division title in 2015 (as opposed to doing stupid shit like following "rest metrics" and starting Pedro Florimon at SS during a critical game against the Cubs, and leaving Jeff Locke in to face the batting order a third time in a critical game against St. Louis where he had struggled mightily against them the first two times through), they would have had a legitimate shot to win the World Series.

Cole...Happ...Good Frankie ...Burnett...that's a rotation of a team that could have competed in a best-of-five, best-of-seven.

Unfortunately, again they had to take their chances in a roulette game and ran up against a real ace.

I worry about the strength of the farm system at this point. i do not see much star power in it now that Bell, Tallion and Glassnow will be on the roster. Espeically if Hanson and Frazier stick in the majors

I couldn't care less about star power. Andrew McCutchen was that star power guy since 2009 and all we have to show for that is one Wild Card win. I like Bell and Taillon a lot. For Glasnow I need a bigger sample size. I also think Kuhl and Brault can solidify the starting rotation.

This year/off-season is NO different than any other since 1992. Spend some damn money!!! Fill a freak'in hole/weakness with some quality. What did saving money, back in the early 90's cutting Bonilla, Bonds etc.... get ya? 26 seasons of under 500% ball, is what ya got!!!!

Look I've been preaching it for years to anyone that will listen (Including my entire family) you don't go 26 years without an above 500% record without trying too. You can't, it's impossible, by happen-stance at some point you will luck into an above 500% season, even if it's by one game every two or three years. No professional team is that bad. It only can be done ON PURPOSE by a cheap skate, crooked, business mind.

Last off-season needed a "boost" or two. Ya got nothing from ownership. Ya went backwards again. No additions to make any sound mind think this years team would be better. NONE, zilch, natta!!!! The team is going backwards again unless a wallet is opened or the ownership changes.

Pirate Nation are all puppets on a string. Pull a string and they all pull out some "green" to line ownership's wealth, estate, & worth. This ownership has done NOTHING in NOT a single off-season, since it bought the team, to nudge it forward. But hey, keep fighting the good fight and keep the hope alive this is the year it will change.

I was just watching one of those games from the 79 WS recently.....Kent Tekulve coming in during the 7th inning and finishing the game....lol, how times have changed. Fun team to watch that year. Chuck Tanner could do no wrong with his platooning, etc. And that starting pitching staff was so damn good, fun fun team. Candelaria, Bibby, Blyleven, Kison - strong.

I'm kind of rooting for Cleveland now, if you can believe it.

Terry Francona went old school...had the audacity to use his best relievers when he actually...you know...NEEDED them...instead of slotting them for their innings.

It's why he's moving on and a guy Buck Showalter is sitting at home...again.

Be interesting if Cubs vs. Indians. The two non-expansion teams that have gone the longest without a WS win. Cubs - 108 years. Indians - 68 years.

As for Tito, it was sweet revenge for him to sweep the Sox at Fenway. I don't ever recall seeing him as happy last night as he was his entire time in Boston.

Trading the best starting pitcher on the team and one of the best trade assets (because they dont want to pay him) for 2 reliever prospects ( :lol: :lol: ) and a somewhat highly rated position prospects.

Can we say it boys?

Is it the strongest this roster has been in the offseason in years?

I’m not sure about the roster, but this may possibly go down as the greatest trade in MLB history...
