So by that rationale, Dan Duquette is currently driving the wrong way down Charles Street, looking for a Montessori school to plow into.

Well shiat, we know he's a drunk. They traded for Burnett.

Polartank13: Well shiat, we know he's a drunk. They traded for Burnett.


I actually feel like that was a decent move for the Pirates. Getting out of New York, the AL East, and Yankee Stadium should help him, and from what I hear the Pirates didn't give up too much.

I do agree with you, he isn't really costing the Pirates much, they only gave up a couple of minor league pitchers which will never pan out. The Yankees had to trade him though, there was nothing else that could be done there. But you know, low-hanging fruit and all.

"In the years I have gotten to know Frank personally, I have learned he is a dedicated husband and father who has strong values that are grounded in his family, religion and hard work," Nutting said. "These mistakes are not characteristic of the man that I know and I am confident he has learned from them."

what does getting hammered and driving down the street the wrong way have to do with church, family, or hard work?

What a moron. He should have spent his off time in Georgia, where Pittsburgh athletes go to have the charges dropped.

With great responsibility comes great thirst.

Also, as a Yinzer, I can safely tell you Pittsburgh is HELL to drive in. The closest thing we have to a square block in the whole city is a trapezoid and the first few times I went driving I spent about an hour stuck in the wrong lanes until I finally got lost enough to get out to Squirrel Hill by accident and was able to re-orient myself. It's not surprising anyone would be stuck going the wrong way.

This is a big year for the Pirates. They're going for 20 losing seasons in a row. That's probably some sort of record.
Their slogan this season: Pride. Passion. Pittsburgh Pirates.

red5ish: This is a big year for the Pirates. They're going for 20 losing seasons in a row. That's probably some sort of record.


the record is already theirs

although the Phillies team whose record they beat had 14 in a row, then a .500 season, then 16 in a row. I think they could totally make a run at that kind of futility minus a fluke season. 31 straight? Why not! Especially with the god-awful Astros leaving the division after this year.

It's a National League town, they don't do designated ANYthing. They don't believe that people should get to continue to party if they're not going to be drinking like everyone else. They'd rather see people driving drunk all over the place, that's how you get to see who the best really is. American League towns with their designated drivers are sissies and designated drivers are wastes of car space.

All right, all ready. I know he's a Hall Of Famer. I just figured most people wouldn't know who he was - he's not exactly Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, or Joe DiMaggio.
