Ha... I actually meant Rickie. I'm bad at first names.

Pirates now have to finish 54-89 to lose 100 games.

To quote Dana Carvey, "Not gonna happen."

I think the NL Central is worse than people thought. The Cards and Cubs are unimpressive, and that will go a long way to determining how bad of a season it is for the Pirates.

But anyway, I'd like to see them try and shop Rodriguez, Frazier, Moran, Gonzalez and Reynolds as opposed to trying to hang around .500

The good news is, they are only 2.5 games out of first

The other good news is, they are only 2.5 games above worst record in baseball

They got this, and I’m not talking about the division.

Many people had them at 54-108 so they'd have to be way better than that to not go 54-89...

This post is premature

The Rockies are going to coast to the worst record.

That arenado deal was pathetic, basically paid the cardinals to take their best player. The remaining players gave up wel before the season started and they will likely trade story for prospects before the deadline

It's such a long season. They could lose their next five and the #1 pick might seem like a lock. Or win a few in a row and we start dreaming of a surprise year. I've been guilty of both. We'll see what happens

I wonder what the best 18-game segment will be. Like conveniently select any 18 game section.

Can they even get to 10?
8-10 in their first 18 game set.

Usually all but a couple of teams are within 3 or 4 game of each other in April

The dodgers might just be so much better than every other team. It could be a really weird season

I don't even think what DK said was that bad. Pirates fans were going on about how Nutting is cheap when Frazier wasn't signed out of camp directly. DK said that Evans was more versatile, and that's why he made the roster. I don't even think Frazier can dispute that, unless he's learned the OF at the alternate site.

Just finished watching today's game. Cahill had the knuckle curve dropping today.

The drive to .500 continues.
