I'll start.

Remember when .... we all dreaded interleague play? 15-5 this year and that includes games against 3 likely AL playoff contenders.

Remember when... one servicable starting pitcher went down and the team was shot?

Remember when ... the Pirates' best young prospect was brought to the majors and we all hoped for significant contribution, even when when he was not good enough to rank as a top-100 prospect?

Remember when... Jimmy Anderson started like 90 games over three years and ate himself out of baseball?

Make no mistake about it, Anderson didn't eat himself out of baseball, he pitched himself out of baseball.

Remember when... the Pirates day-to-day success hinged on guys like Delwyn Young, Lastings Milledge, Akinori Iwamura, Matt Diaz...?

Remember when... some of us (this guy included) thought [some of] those guys might pan out?!?!

Yikes! This thread is bringing back some awful Pirates memories. I am going into "Operation Shutdown" and won't read any more comments. :lol:

...On nights like last night when the Pirates went through the first 3 innings without a hit, you had that gnawing feeling that "tonight's the night they get no-hit"

I'm thinking one may have had something to do with the other. Not many successful MLB pitchers eat a McRib between innings.

Remember when... we finished the 2010 season with a road record of 17-64? Three years later, and we're 39-36 away from PNC Park (so far).

9-1 on road - interleague play.

Remember the days of trying to convince ourselves that the likes of Al Martin and Kevin Young were something special?

Or that a catcher who could steal 30 bases was a franchise player?
