The Pirates are only national news when it's embarrassment time.

Pretty accurate assessment, but out pitching fucking blows.

Could have mentioned all 3 outfielders last year hit under .200, kinda hard to do.


Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

That's epic. Baseball special ed. Baltimore prides itself on broken down retreads and the legends of the minor leagues coming up. And Chris Davis redefining payroll gridlock.

We had a lot of fun over the years and met some wonderful people on the way.

BTW, the one in 1999 made me an Oriole fan and Willie a Scott Erickson fan Ha, ha, ha. A walk-off grand slam homerun from Harold Baines in extra innings got us the win.

I've also seen Spring Training games at the following parks: Hohokam Park (Cubs), Ed Smith Stadium (Orioles), Fort Lauderdale Stadium (Orioles), Steinbrenner Field (Yankees), LECOM Park (Pirates), Publix Field at Marchant Stadium (Tigers), Champion Stadium (Braves) and Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium (Cardinals)

where I knew enough to follow what he was talking about. Even though we were the least mentioned potential playoff team on his feed.
The Indians never excited him. It has always been teams moving up that jump started his interest. The saving grace in that he is not a Red Sox/Yankweeny syncopant.

My team's ability has been the transmission belt that has consistently brought along
pitching as established stars either aged or priced themselves out of our market. Pickup pitching has done all right, but rarely what made a difference.
Obviously we have had good players, but for every Brantley Lindor or Ramirez we have had some newbie star pitcher. AND everybody has stars in their regular lineup.

The sort of thing has been noticed by Sheehan.
O's? Perhaps not his strength among the 30 teams.

We got our shitty prior GM from the Indians.
Who proceeded to trade for his entire career with the Indians.
Erik Gonzalez the last turd we acquired

Other team's castoffs were better by definition than most of our team. It was usually a reasonable gamble.

We finally spent some international dough. This, like advanced metrics, doesn't give us an edge. It just levels the field a little. We signed the 15th and 30th ranked prospects. So, yay, but that averages us out to 22.5. Mathematically, we got lapped by almost everybody else. If you can follow my logic there. it's only the tip of the iceberg that gets you better. So maybe the 15th guy jumps to 7th when it's done. It was better than not playing, which used to be us.

I think Eddie Rodriguez of Boston fame is our last Dominican ball to big leaguer. Now covid has damaged his heart. Sucks for him. Happy for the Red Sox.
