Maybe they can return Fowler as to the A's as well.

Pirates' twitter getting excited after this afternoons win.

I would just say that it is impressive that they are hovering at .500 even with so much dead weight in both the lineup and the starting rotation. Kuhl, Cahill and Keller are bed sores, and CF, RF and SS are like the co-ed spots in a PSL softball lineup.

They are not going to upgrade these spots, Hayes will come back, but lots of guys are playing above their heads (Moran and Reynolds in the lineup, Crick and richrod in the bullpen). Evans has already come back to earth.

As the leading Pirates' optimist, I am not there at all, still waiting for the MiLB to start.
Philip Evans doesn't cool down, he just takes it easy when the rest of the team hits

Keller missing his start today. Yajure makes his debut.

Keller to the 10 day DL?

- This season is a disaster. STOP WINNING!

- 7 inning doubleheaders are bullshit. Play a **** full game you pussies. Baseball players don’t do **** and are more coddled than any athlete. Absolutely ridiculous ****.

:lol:

I had forgotten about the 7 inning doubleheader rule. I left work to pick up my son at 3:15, and it was the fourth inning. I got the notification an hour later that the Pirates had won. I was happy about the pace of play! Then I realized it was a shortened game. :face:

Was it the 2009 Cup run in the Capitals series where they had to play 3 games in 4 days? I don't remember the specifics, just remember Caps fans whining like the dodints they are because their team was too ti ti.

Yeah, there was a Yanni concert at the arena so they had to play back to back...

Boudreau was whining that the Pens illegally scheduled an event when these things are usually done wayyyy in adavance.

Yanni then released a congratulations video for the Pens after they won the cup.

Over the past couple years of a normal schedule doubleheaders have accounted for less than 2% of the total league schedule. They should work on shortening the other 98% of games before turning 2% into a spring training game. As a fan, if you’re attending a doubleheader in person or watching on TV you already know you’re committing yourself to a full day of baseball with an afternoon and evening game. At that point who gives a **** about turning 6 hours into 4.5?

Part of the joy of baseball is the fact that it doesn't have a clock. Who cares how long the game takes.

Some would argue that's part of the pain. These 4+ hour games do nothing for the growth of the sport.

I know that I don't want to sit down for 4+ hours for any sporting event ....and certainly not a baseball game.

Hayes will be a non-factor the entire year.

I guess Reynolds to play CF?

Either way, need to activate operation shutdown

I'm not sure why they didn't have Reynolds play CF to begin with. Probably some stats or metrics say he's not good enough there or something.
