    LETS GO BUCS!

    It's nice to have meaningful baseball around here in July. It's been a long 20 years.

    They were doing OK around this time last year.

    I'm used to seeing our baseball and hockey seasons end together.

    I thought last year was impressive. This year has been much, much better, and far less of an illusion I'm hoping.

    21 of the last 26 World Series have been won by the team with home field advantage.

    I couldn't help myself watching the All Star game last night hoping that the NL win so the Buccos could get HFA for the World Series. Am I setting myself up for disappointment?

    Their starting pitching should help prevent a collapse.....I hope.

    I don't know... bashing the Pirates management right now is like bashing the Saints FO. after they got Brees
    Agreed. The Pirates management has really improved.

    What is perhaps most impressive to me about the Pirates is that some of their best talent is still in the minors.

    Who was the last really good pitcher the Pirates had? I can't remember a single one in maybe the last 15 years or so.

    Hopefully Cole and Taillon can become our version of Randy Johnson and Curt Shilling.
