As bad as they've been this year, they appear to me to be only a couple of everyday players away from being competitive.They also need to improve their bullpen. It's been awful.....Not knocked over by Shelton.I realize that right now he doesn't know the players well enough to know when and who to use.He's made some mistakes that have cost them games already.

Cole Tucker needs to lift weights and get stronger. He has great speed and can switch hit, he just needs more power.Same for Kevin Newman although he has homered today and showed some signs of power late last year.....Moron has hit 5 homers, leads MLB may be better off as the DH. The power probably won't last but his lack of speed will....Good to see Chad Kuhl pitch well again, but the beard makes him look 10 years older than he did two years ago....

The more that i watch shelton, the more that i wish they had hired a manager with experience.This reminds me of loser lloyd. He doesn't have a clue. Pirates should get the first pick next june,

Atleast the Pirates showed some life last night....I knew when they brought never ask us in that the game was lost. why can't they just release the guy?.. Shelton got tossed last night, there was no need in him acting like he did. Don kelly took over and he must've been taking orders from shelton because he grossly mismanaged the rest of the game... Yes the team is bad, but the Tigers are just as bad and the pirates should be winning games like these...The pirates bullpen may be the worst that I've seen, all of those losing years they had better pitchers in the pen than they do now. Many of these guys should not be in the major leagues...

This is sad.... Holland gave up 4 homers in the first inning.... then Shelton left him out there too long and then brought in another pitcher that had never pitched in the major leagues.... Over on another pirates forum they have a goat of the game award each loss.... Shelton leads the team in being voted goat of the game.... Phillip Evans got hurt too when he collided with Polanco..... maybe the worst baseball that the pirates have ever played in my lifetime...

Dang!!!!!! The pirates got a potential real good player in Anthony alford..... I was excited and tonight he fractured his right elbow and is out for the season.....there might be another chance to get another good player from the bluejays soon. derek Fisher who's from pittsburgh might be released soon too. If so the Pirates need to pick him up too if possible...

They sure need to fire the manager and coaching staff just as soon as the season ends....
