Zach Thompson needs to go Indy. Move Crowe to rotation.

Today's era of game has me baffled sometimes. We have something like 16 pitchers on our roster, but we still have to bring in a position player to throw the 9th. I know all teams do it, but we can't find one of them to throw one inning? I remember how fun it was watching Jose Canseco come in to pitch one of those games. He had a wicked curve, but then wound up needing Tommy John surgery after that. Oh well.

21-0 is just plain awful. Worst Pirate defeat in their history.
However, I think I would rather lose like that than say blowing
a 4-0 in the bottom of the 9th and losing 5-4
Guess what- tomorrow we start 0-0 and those 21 runs don't
mean a damn thing

Forfeiting the game makes it a 9-0 loss.
And it saves the bullpen.

The umps squeezed us at the plate, otherwise I think we would have won.

This team could have potential if they had just a decent starting rotation. Quintana is the only one I trust and he's a 4/5 guy in any other clubs rotation.

Chad Kuhl is getting $3 million a year to pitch with the Rockies. He is off to a nice to start in his first 3 games. 16.1 in 8 hits 1.10 ERA (2-0).

Everyone around baseball is talking about the 21-0 game, but nobody is talking about how the Bucs took 3 of 4 on the road.

Pirates are in third place 8-8. Now let's take care of the Brewers and maybe the Mets can do a number on the Cardinals.

2 games out of 1st place. And that's with a cold bat from Reynolds and no power from Tsutsugo.

Why can the Brewers afford guys like Yelich, Adames, and Hade3r, and we can't?
