Fark. I had such hopes. I can't say they were high, but they were hopes nonetheless.

Should've gotten the Obvious tag... if only because we don't have a Pathetic tag.

Don't worry Pittsburgh fans, now you'll no longer have to pretend about baseball because the Steelers are playing!!! EIGHT RING FEVER!!!! Let's look at their record....oh. Well at least there is hockey....

Whats the excuse this year? Last year it was that bad call in the braves series that farked you up, so someone stub their toe during the all star break, is that the excuse?

They should replace the manager after the All Star break each season.

It couldn't hurt.

As much as I hate Pittsburgh, I was hoping that this would be the year for the Pirates.

Indeed. It probably got more butts in the seats this year... Which means they may have enough money so that they won't have to sell off everyone next year.

You sell off the team in July, not November.
 
2012-09-30 10:22:36 PM
Sad indeed. Hard to believe they were 16 games over .500 at one point. Even as a fan I have no sympathy though. You gotta try pretty hard to be that good mid-season and be that bad the rest of the way.

Seriously? .329/.401/.559 isn't worth talking about? No other player in baseball is in the top 5 in all 3 of those stats. #3 in WAR, more than 8 runs per 27, that's being deluded? All right, his isolated power is low. But he's also a damn good fielder, just one error this year. Saying he isn't worth consideration is deluded.

No, we have to give it to the best guy on a playoff team! That's all that matters! And a GOOD playoff team, too!

So uh, hey Jay Bruce. You hit 30 homers. Have an mvp.

It really does break my heart to see the Pirates be so bad for dso long because the fans in Pittsburgh are so very humble about their teams and never would try to feel superior by clinging onto the performance of their teams, no matter how far in the past their success may have been. They also have the finest cuisine. I mean, where else can you order a slad and have them be so kind as to cover it with french fries? Nothing is better than hot oil dripping over cold crisp lettuce.

Nothing. That's kind of the point. For twenty years now, they've done a whole lot of nothing.

But I have only sympathy for the fans. They haven't done anything wrong. My hate is reserved for the franchise itself, for the appalling lack of competence on display. Even the most God-forsaken hellhole of a sports market* doesn't deserve to be saddled with such a pathetic excuse for a program.

* Salt Lake City, UT, in case you were wondering.

Nope, he's 9th in OBP across baseball. McCutchen is the only player in baseball to be top 5 in AVG, OBP and SLG.

You do realize that Joe Mauer has won the batting title 3 times, yet has 1 MVP, right? And that he's .002 behind Cabrera this year?

I was a huge Braves fan when I was young, and half my family is from or lives in Pittsburgh. I still have my ticket stubs from the 1992 Braves/Pirates Game 4 NLCS; the only baseball game I've ever been to. I can't believe I was only 8 years old. I had no idea the Pirates haven't had a winning season since then either. Crazy.

At least the Pirates are better than the Red Sox this year. Just think, the Red Sox may be at the start of a 20 year losing streak. You will grow old and they will put you on TV in 2032 and you can stand there with your walker saying, "I remember the last time the Sox won the Series. You could still get bleacher seats for less than $100.00"

Awww, poor Cards fans, nothing to do during the baseball postseason, eh? Damned if I can ever find the world's tiniest violin when I need it!! Oh well, just have LaRue take some 'roids until he feels better, the LaRussa way.
