Don't know where else to post this, but there has been plenty of talk about the Pirates' pitching.

Here's 'pitching clutch' stats: http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?p ... &sort=13,d

Well, today's game falls into category 3...Lack of Pitching and or lack of Offense... (Team scored 4 runs or less and lost). The Pirates have lost 53 games so far this season that fall into this category.

Pitching was not good enough to hold the lead and the Offense was not good enough to score enough runs to win the game.

Correction...the Pirates have now lost 56 games this season where they either were shut out, scored 1 run, scored 2 runs, scored three runs, and yes scored 4 runs...they have lost 56 games involving those run production or lack of run production totals.

I know the pitching has not been great but to me this is proof that the offense is leaving too many runners on base without cashing in...today was evidence of that again.

56 games is a huge chunk of losses involving scoring 4 runs or less. The offense is just not getting it done IMHO....

See the "56 Losses" thread, I break it down for all of the contenders there.
