I like "torture" myself. :D

PS: I thought the new line-up worked well tonight. Instead of not scoring or scoring 1 run, the Pirates scored (drumroll)......two runs!
Pretty good eh?

They also struck out 14 times? I lost count. :roll:

You forgot a few choices, didn't you? How about guarded optimism. I would much rather watch this bunch go through growing pains than see Jason Bay and Jack Wilson lead us to another 75 win season.

This team is just as difficult to watch as the '85-'87 teams. I'm counting on them to be as much fun to watch in a couple years as the '90-'92 teams.

I agree on that point brad. But we're not sure they will turn into the 90-92 teams that will contend. Right now they are the worst Pirate team I've ever seen and that includes the teams of the '80s.

I guess the only word that makes sense is hope. I do have that still only because I'll die a Pirate fan.
