    I want to know when they're going to stop hiring these worthless old washed-up has-been relief pitchers to close games. They should have learned last year that it kills all the fun if everyone knows you don't have a bullpen.

    I think the bullpen is cursed. I mean, Wilson and Lowe weren't overly sharp, either.

    We need an exorcism. Or a witch doctor. Something. Anything. Exhume Aurelio Lopez and build him a shrine in the pen. I don't know. The last closer I felt halfway comfortable with after the 3rd game of the season was Mike Henneman.

    And the scary part is, Ausmus didn't screw this one up. He did just what he was supposed to do. And they went and did....that.

    Wow. Sure glad Kirk Gibson helped us out with all those baserunning drills we read about.

    F this. I'm going to bed. I've got 13 more days of tax season nonsense to deal with first.

    I always favored Willie Hernandez. I was at that perfect age in '84 where I could really get into every single game listening to Ernie on my little radio. Never be another summer like that. April 7 when Morris threw that no hitter, the last inning of that game was the most thrilling moment of any media I've ever heard/watched in my life. By July or so, I already knew they'd win it all so it lacked some of that raw excitement when the playoffs came around.

    Think about that one. The Pirates played at Forbes Field for 45 seasons before they played their first opener at home. They opened on the road every single year between 1893-1954.
    Sounds like they got screwed over more than anything. They were technically in the "South" of the 8 NL teams at the time.

    7-3 over Florida. *shrug* Being 2-0 beats the hell out of being 0-2.

    I'm gonna wait until the 25th or so before I get excited about this team. We'll see if Ausmus can actually manage after the first few series this time 'round.

    I thought putting in greene for the save was very good, and leaving sanchez in yesterday was the right thing too do.
