I have rooted for the Pirates since 1969. I watched Nelson Briles fall off the mound and dominate the Orioles in 1971. I watched Clemente dominate the 1971 Series, and Stargell ... not. I watched Stargell dominate the entire 1979 season.

I was royally pissed at the 1978 team. Hated how a good team just pissed away the first 3 months, only to be the best team in baseball over the last 3 months.

But right now, I fucking hate, hate, HATE this collection of losers, dolts, idiots and imbeciles.

I am sick of Gregory "Gangly Fuck-Up a Routine Fucking Flyball, 7 Feet Tall, 0 HR's, Soft-Serve, Fuck Him He Has Less Balls than Taillon" Polanco. Fuck him. This loss IS ON HIM AND HIS INABILITY TO CATCH A FUCKING LAZY FLY TO RF.

Trade that piece of shit. Fuck him.

And Mercer, "foul back on a fucking cookie pitch" Mercer. Fuck him as well.

And 2nd base. That collection of loser, retard, K masters. Fuck all of them. Except Frazier. I like him.

And fuck 3rd base and the collection of clown-car, goat-fuck, talentless douchefucks that currently occupy the position.

In conclusion, fuck this team. I am sick of the Pittsburgh Pirates. I hate them like I hated the Mets in 1990, and the Braves in 1992.

I am out on these worthless bitches. I have spent vastly too much time, energy, worry and money on these c***s. Fuck them, and I am done with this shithole organization.

P.S. I like the Diamonbacks. They went for it in 2016, and their effort failed miserably. Oh, okay, so they went for it and failed.

Unlike the Pirates, who pussy-went for it and failed. Okay.

The D'Backs have two of my favorite players, Goldschmidt and Pollock. Goldschmidt is what Pirates fans hoped McCutchen would be. McCutchen is about 1/20th the player Goldy is. Meanwhile, Gangly-Giraffe stumbles around in the OF, while Pollock makes the catch look easy ... then walks, and steals a base ... and lines a single to center.

Meanwhile, Gangly-Giraffe-Overrated-Dogshit-Wannabe-Prospect bumbles, stumbles, drops another fly ball, hits his billionth grounder to second base. To summarize the difference between a player I like and a player I have grown to HATE:

At least we had the "financial flexibility" to sign a quality set up man(who had a 5.22 ERA last year). He's been a really solid investment...kudos to the BMTIB.

Oh my gosh- I can't believe he didn't hurt himself. That is, without a doubt, the most inept attempt at a fly ball I have ever seen. He'd make a good DH...if he could hit.

I don't hate the team. I've very annoyed and disappointed, but I've followed this team through a lot more bad years than good, and I will continue to do that as long as I am able.

Relative to many of the dark years, this team is in good shape. They are financially sound, have coherent management, and a decent amount of talent. You couldn't say any of that through a lot of the dark years.

They may or may not rebound this year, but I am optimistic that they will be good again, if not this year then next.

Bucfan just needs to get through his primal scream therapy. He'll be alright.

A little Tears for Fears "Shout", plus a good start by Cole and 8 runs scored, he'll settle down. ;)

Was he really trying to catch the ball between his legs?

This, but... the tone of what Bucfan said.

This team doesn't seem to CARE. This is like watching your slacker son bring home D's on their report card and be fine with ending up on the C-Team Basketball squad.

It's like... "ARE YOU EVEN TRYING?!"

The 2017 Pirates lack "fire" and "heart". Thus far they've been playing the whole season like the Steelers whenever they play a sub-.500 team.

Best case scenario this team doesn't give a shit and worst case all the talent peaked and/or was overrated so now this is as good as it gets. Either way it's frustrating AF.

Worse than anything is the trade value of Cutch is a pack of '88 Donruss baseball cards.

Good thing for me is I'm getting more things accomplished around the house lately because I usually can't get through the first inning of most games.

Love my pirates, but I will not waste time on watching losers. Baseball takes up a lot of time since there are so many games. Not like football where there is only one game a week.

Polanco looks like a clumsy big bird.

Polanco has turned into a left-handed Morse.

Without the power.

Pulls his average up 30 points in the last week and on cue, pulls his hammy even more.
