I decided last night that I need to take a day off from my Pirates. Low-and-behold, I look at the pitching matchups today and realize that the Bucs have a day off, too. A few weeks ago, I couldn't stand the thought of a day without a game. But the past week has really gotten to me, and I need a break.

Here's to a day off. May we fans, and our favorite team, come back on Friday with a new attitude and approach to the rest of the season. Let's sweep the Cubs in Wrigley, and then crush the Brewers when they come to PNC next week. Finish strong, and go into the offseason with renewed hope.

Yeah, I'm enjoying the night off. Just because not playing is better than losing, and these last 4 weeks have been among the hardest on me since the days of Bonds, Bonilla and Drabek.

As an aside, is there a shorthand term, name, etc for those three time NL East Champs? I mean, if the 79 Pirates are the We Are Family Pirates, is there a name for those wonder years???
