In baseball, you are what your record says you are. And the Pirates' record and statistics say that they're a below-average team with awful hitting.

Even in their wins, they left a ton of guys on base by striking out or hitting into double-plays. They've been terrible offensively, they just got a little bit of timely hitting in the first two series, and haven't seen it again since. It's a shame too, given how good their pitching has been, and how good their 1-6 spots in the lineup look on paper.

I refuse to start another game thread until one of the following occurs:

A. The Pirates win two games in a row;
B. Pedro Alvarez (starting third baseman on J_C_Steel's fantasy baseball team) hits a home run; or
C. The Pirates score 7 or more runs in a game.

I get that, but I see loads of potential and greatness in this team.

It probably won't come to fruition for another year, but... I still see it, damn it! :D

Well, C has occurred. Way to hit the extra point today to take a 7-6 decision from the Reds, Pirates...
