I'm excited about this group too, but it doesnt mean I'm booking my tickets for the NLCS either...

I was talking to someone the other night about the Pirates, cuz I had my Pirate hat on at the bar, and he thinks it would be great to see what would happen say McCutchen makes it to the club in May or June and Tabata tears it up and gets a shot in September, about what would the OF look like in 2010?

A preist, a minister, and a rabbi walk into a bar and the bartender says "what is this, some kind of joke..."

Robin Williams from Live at the Met

HOWDY!!!!! Oops wrong Opera House!

This feels weird me playing the Met. I get the feeling Pavorotti is over at the Improv saying "Two Jews walk into a bar....."

I took a look at the Pirates depth chart on Yahoo and came away depressed. This team is not going to score many runs. I know I know...captain obvious. It just seems this season is the least optimistic I've ever been as a Pirates fan.

I mean...are you serious??

1. Nyjer Morgan LF
2. Jack Wilson SS
3. Nate McLouth CF
4. Ryan Doumit C
5. Adam LaRoche 1B
6. Brandon Moss RF
7. Andy LaRoche 3B
8. Freddie Sanchez 2B
9. PITCHER

The worst part of that lineup is our best hitter will only play...at most...5 days per week. Sweet. Can anyone cheer me up?


Here you need a pep talk. If this does not get you fired up nothing will?

I'm optimistic about this club. I saw first hand in Double-A ball what little LaRoche can do when he's healthy. The guy has unbelievable pop in his bat when he's healthy. If he can be injury free and his brother puts together a good season from day one, that would be some nice punch from 1B and 3B. Sanchez will hit .300+ if he's healthy, Doumit has some pop in his bat, hopefully McLouth doesn't have a letdown from his big year in 2008. I think Moss has the ability to hit 20-25 homers a year and I love Morgan's speed..if he can find a way to get on base Wilson or whoever hits in the two hole becomes a better hitter.

Will all of this happen?? Probably not, but the potential is there for every player in this lineup..plus we got some pop on the bench in Hinske.

I'd love to see Doumit put a few more of those doubles out over the fence this season...

LF is going to be a big question mark with Morgan as he's only shown any success late in the season, but maybe starting the season off getting regular at bats will change that, but hes only there in LF until McCutchen arrives...

I caught a Sunday Evening game 2 seasons ago, I sat next to McCutchen's mom and dad...He was a pretty nice fellow, you could see the joy when he did something good and the disappointment when it didnt go right, Mom was a typical sports mom, watched most of the game but when he was up she was nervous for him...Dad must have been a Penn State fan as he had a Penn State hat and mesh collar shirt on...

And the Curve won the game too...I've seen alot more wins than losses at Blair County Ballpark...
