That pen is like trying to use a power buffer to shine a wet turd

They're right where I thought they'd be. Again.
The world as we know it underwent a rebirth 11-8-16. Conservatives have made themselves heard!

Off to a good start...i just wish we'd get crushed every game instead of letting all of these slip away.

Wow, the Pirates have officially thrown in the towel. As bad as they’ve been after the All Star Break, that 2nd inning may be the worst inning of the season!

To me , for a few weeks I’ve figured seasons end would bring the end of Hurdles ‘ tenure. But wasn’t sold that Huntington would also be gone. Now I’m convinced it’s a necessity. The first several incidents in the bullpen with Vasquez and Kela then Vasquez and crick. They protected their valuable asset..... yea that worked out well. And judging by the amount of minor ailments by regulars these days missing games regularly.... they quit

There have been like 20 "Hurdle has kind of lost the team" moments this season.  So I'm sure he'll get a raise and not fired.

At the ASB, I predicted between 75-85 wins...it seems I definitely overestimated them. I expected a 2nd half decline, but I did not expect them to be downright dominated and outclassed on most nights. This is a franchise that is in a lot of trouble moving forward. And yes, based on past history, I’d expect Clint to be writing the lineup again next season.
