Your 2022 Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball Thread

DK is such a dramatic baby. It's not good for the pitcher, but it's probably not abuse. The pitcher could simply...pitch better.

That's not really a pay raise though, that doesn't make sense, unless he talked to whoever else and they weren't offering much higher?

I think it's the fact for me, that they don't even appear to be trying - minus that one failed legislature bid and Biden doing press conferences.

These types of things should be front and center about being worked on - but because they're negative, they just try and avoid it.

That's where I see it having the most impact. Groceries are out of control, gas is out of control. Run on those two things and that hurts Biden/whoever as they have the "majority" now.

I think the longer this goes, the further under 50% it gets for both Letang and Malkin. IMO, if they wanted to sign here - and the Pens wanted to do, it'd be done by now.

I’m looking forward to Biden announcing loan forgiveness in mid October…
But only if you vote for democrats. If you don’t, then there’s nothing he can do.
That's the 2024 promise. "We swear we'll do this, we're totally legit."

That's basically where I think I'm landing to. A vote for nobody is a negative vote, sure - but like Biden/Trump. I went with the less of two evils, now at this point, there's no winner if it's Biden/Trump again, and I'm just not interested in this. I think the abortion stuff is going to help democr...

I've already admitted that nothing ever happens, and this is the most I'm impacted on any of the decisions. But that bill, didn't have solid support even in the rank and file moderates. I legit believe it was just used as another 'LOOK AT ALL THESE PEOPLE SAYING NO.' Because if these people truly su...

So they couldn't have gone to the negotiating table anywhere? Just wanted to pass a bill immediately, so everyone can say no and move on? Glad we tried everything and we're out of ideas... I've seen this bill posted everywhere about how republicans shot it down en masse, but no follow-up to improve,...

Yea? Currently, have the dems done anything to combat the mentioned above? IIRC Biden has bought barrels that hasn't impacted anything. They've spent a majority of their time thus far, decrying how they'd like to fix things but can't (fundraising for it), and seemingly refuse to do anything that cou...

It feels like whatever, they really were never given a major change to shine when tying them to the inner circle right away. I really don't like what Jericho has been doing with this group, and I didn't like them in it.

At this point, I'll take even the lower common denominator stuff. Biden could promise to wipe $50 from whatever and I'd call it a win. But he's shown he really has zero desire to help. Which is why in 2024, if Trump/DeSantis come at it hard and focus on the things directly in front of our faces, it'...

That all being said. Things I am tired of...inflation, gas prices, a general sense of angst by everyone, wherever.

Someone really should focus on doing all they can to fix this stuff. Or 2024, really has my vote in a toss-up, because I'm not about to be bamboozled again with inaction.

KD wants to be traded to the Heat or the Suns. They're at the top of his list. He got all shitty with Chuck because he was a bus rider at GS, and now he's going to want to be exactly that again.

It's a shame this dude is an emotional turd, he could have been the best.

That's pretty much where I ended up. Realistically, most of this stuff impacts me zero. I also realize I'm a job loss away from falling into the muck, but I'll only control what I can.

5th grade we got the small introduction. 8th grade, we got the larger introduction plus watching a baby being born (which was enough for me), 9th grade, we got the sex talk.

Seems like malpractice to prevent teaching sex ed to middle schoolers. We had our first bit in 4th grade. Repeat in 5th. Big unit on it in 6th grade that got into more specifics. 9th grade health class was the finishing touches/most in-depth. Banning sex ed for kids 12-15 just makes them dumber to ...

Obviously the environmental impact will be massive, probably a 2-3 decades left for life as we know it now.

It has to emotionally hurt KD that Steph won again without him.

He's a punk, he built that Brooklyn team, and jumps ship because he sucks at being a GM.
