Well I vote that we send Manfred up to do the job. Philosophy can be simple: In zone = hit ball, out of zone = no hit ball

in lieu of: in zone, watch ball three times.

Sorry you drank the kool-aid.

I'm not sure I drank it, I just want this team to be better. We deserve better. Thank goodness the Steelers have given us this off season excitement or this would be real dismal times for Pittsburgh sports.

Cheer up, they'll be bringing up Skenes in a week or so, mainly to put asses in the seats. He'll win a few, but he's not the total answer and we all know it. 2nd smallest payroll in MLB.

They lost 3-2 this evening against one of the worst teams pitching staffs in the National League the Colorado Rockies. Please Pirate organization fire your hitting coach.

The bucs are frustrating. I watch consistently and it's almost like you can predict everything that is going to happen.. Jones and Skenes have me excited though. legit top end pitchers! But they have to develop some of these position players better. There is talent there, but by the time they get ready contract is up and they are gone...

Yeah that's what is frustrating!! I thought when they signed Reynolds and Hayes to extensions that we could be turning a corner, but those 2 seem to be regressing instead of getting better. I'm not sure about Cruz, either. He seems to be a prima donna they he acts sometimes. We don't need players with that attitude.
