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....

welp.... this season ended quickly and abruptly for the pirates..... My thoughts: I actually enjoyed the last few games more than all of the other games this year combined. I do think they have some building blocks that will be good in the near future.

First let me list what players that I'd dump. Polanco and Moran would be the main two. Neveraskus would be released tonight... Shelton and his coaching staff proved that they aren't major league caliber and they should be fired. Shelton is an idiot, plain and simple, I knew it from the moves that he made but then it was confirmed when they would interview him....Nutting should not hire any more unexperienced managers. Shelton was a disaster...


KeBryan Hayes was the highlight of the year, I just hope that he will hit for power like he did this month.The Pirates need two starting outfielders to start with Brian Reynolds. They need relief pitching too and I mean top notch relief pitchers. The other need is a starting catcher. I love stallings, but he is a back-up player at best. If they could get three starting players and maybe three relief pitchers I think they will be ok next year. The starting staff really shined the last week and I think they 6 starting pitchers that should start. taillion will be back next year so he should get his spot back. Brubaker is better than Williams so Williams should either be moved to the pen or off of the team. I'd let him come to ST and make him earn his way back on the team though.

..I'd also fire Joe Block and hire thom brennaman.block doesn't know enough about the game to be calling games at this level.

Ke'Bryan Hayes is the son of former major leaguer Charlie Hayes.
