2019 Pittsburgh Pirates Season Thread

In general, yes, Marte is boned by the Pirates shifting. Fangraphs has him at -10 DRS, which is fifth from the bottom among qualifying OFs. He gets points for his ARM score and takes a tiny hit for errors, but the big hit he takes is on his range score, which is defined as "The number of runs above ...

As usual, the Fed did NOTHING! It is incredible that they can “speak” without knowing or asking what I am doing, which will be announced shortly. We have a very strong dollar and a very weak Fed. I will work “brilliantly” with both, and the U.S. will do great... ....My only question is, who is our ...

I'm hoping that Diaz's issues can be attributed to his injury/infection/illness that cropped up during spring training, but he's been completely awful so who knows. Another crowd last night barely above 10,000. Their YoY attendance difference has dropped to +529 per game. Would not surprise me in th...

I think my Tony Hawk experience ended with THUG2. Those first six games were the ****. From what I remember about TH5 reviews, it was made on the quick and cheap due to the licensing deal expiring if a game wasn't released by the end of the year and is essentially a broken game.

Started Mindhunter today as well. This show is fantastic. It’s definitely a slow burn, but it’s interesting as hell and the performances are excellent. The dude playing Ed Kemper is unsettling.

Finished up The Boys. So much more than I expected it to be. Eight episodes was way too short but from the looks of it they’re already pretty far advanced in filming season 2 so hopefully there will be a quick turnaround.

Saw that last night and had a chuckle. Thought he seemed pretty busy for a guy who left DK for health reasons. Maybe the health concern was all the GetGo food. Looks like Alex Stumpf from Bucs Dugout is going to be his replacement at DK. Good for him to get a "real job" in his chosen field, but imag...

Three excellent points. While I am a fan of the superhero genre, I definitely gravitate toward those three (especially Batman) for those reasons.

I also liked Garfield as Spider-Man and thought he had great chemistry with Stone, who was excellent as always, but that second movie was just horrible. Venom did extremely well at the box office and I'm sure there's plenty of people who want to see him go up against Spider-Man, but if Sony is truly...

Also... I was checking out the teams in the championship and league one and saw the league one table... two teams (Bury FC and Bolton Wanderers) with -12 points. I figured that had to be a typo or something. Nope. They were both deducted points for infractions: https://www.efl.com/news/2019/july/ef...

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I think if he just up and retired, the contract would be nullified and the Raiders would be free of their financial obligations. He needs a reason why he can't play, not why he doesn't want to. (At least in his mind......or 'mind') But what can they actually do abo...
