25 wins. Last year they were 29-31 in the first 60 games.At least they can't lose 100 games this season.
Yeah it’s really about pitching. No legit number one or number two starter. I lost track what happened to Williams?Pirates with the worst record in the Major leagues. The majority of the lineup below the Mendoza line, urine poor pitching, no closer after Nightmare proved to be a subhuman. The puzzling thing is the starting lineup in 19 had, outside of the catching position, decent batting average.
This had me googling 'worst trade in pirate history. And somebody (cant remember who) listed this the 2nd worst. Potentially being the worst as long as the trajectory of Meadows and Glasnow keeps going up. I was pretty happy when they got him in 18. By the middle of last year I was hoping this dude could eke out 5 innings without multiple crooked number inningsTaillon being out definitely hurts but Archer was a major bust. That trade will go down as an all-time worst, maybe THE all-time worst.
At this point in time the only team I really enjoy seeing the Bucs beat is the Reds. Also glad they are not going to set the record for worse winning %. Noticed today they are only a game or two back of the World Series champs Nats.9th inning rally over the Reds!
Bucs everyday 8 isn’t bad. Probably a bit below average. Obviously pitching is a concern. I’m glad to her the bullpen looked good today. Did Polanco looked bad at the plate or just bad in all aspects?Not the cleanest performance but some stuff to like: the bullpen looked nasty, Ke’Bryan Hayes looks like the real deal, and the plate discipline was a welcome change from the Hurdle-Huntington era.
If they can clean up the fielding and base-running errors, and Polanco plays better-than-complete-crap (he was bad today), they should have a productive offense.
That’s a shame. So much potential wasted.He looked bad in all aspects. I wouldn’t be surprised if Evans starts Saturday

After Hayes comes back from the DL, I like to see Evans in RF and Polanco to the bench. I have no idea we can get something for him in a trade. Maybe a warm 6 pack of iron city beerHe looked bad in all aspects. I wouldn’t be surprised if Evans starts Saturday
