Watching one of the Spring Games against the Twins, one of their commentators said it best.

Matt Capps is either going to get the save or blow it... and it is going to happen IMMEDIATELY.

Tonight, things got out of control fast. I'm liking the offensive production, but we're going to need the pen to chew up some innings. Marte and Capps starting the year with ERAs around 50 isn't reassuring.

A win is a win and I'm pumped about it. What a game.

Capps was trying to be perfect tonight. Matt, you're not the kind of guy who can paint the black, get in there and get on with winning the game.

Ecstatic for the Buccos tonight. Man, I love baseball season!

You know your franchise has hit rock bottom when fans are getting excited about a 12-11 win on opening day.

Call me at the end of May, when we're already 10 games out of first.

There are a lot of reasons I left Western Pa. This kind of pessimism is one of the big ones.

Wanna give me a reason why I should be optimistic about this team? The way it's set up, we're looking at losing season #16 in a row, and they'll do so with ease. I'd love for them to prove me wrong, but I know they won't.

Because you claim to be a diehard Pirates fan, that's why. Geez - it's the first game of the season and they won, though it wasn't pretty. Give them a fair chance before you start condemning them. :banging:

Edman
04-01-2008, 10:46 AM
I'll root for the Pirates, but don't expect me to attend any games or display any kind of optimism. In typical Bumbling Buc fashion, they almost blew this game. But they won, and I'll give them a fair chance...to drop below .500 by the end of the month. Maybe the underdog "everyone doubted them" route will help the Pirates.

You know, HTG. Loyal Pirates fans have been giving the Bucs a "fair chance" for 15 years now before having their hearts ripped out by disappointment. No doubt they deserve a winning team.

Remember last year when the Bucs opened the season by sweeping the Astros and people finally said they might have turned the corner? Losing season number 15 sprung up in no time flat.

I root for my hometown team no matter how bad they are, but I'll be damned if I'm going to start crucifying them after 1 game - a game which they WON, though it was admittedly a very ugly win. I want to wait to see what John Russell can do with this ballclub before I give them up for dead. He has to be a better manager than Tracy.

For the life of me what I can't understand is why "fans" who have no faith in them still continue to spend their hard earned money to attend their games. :dang:

I spent the money this year because I enjoy baseball and I missed going down to the ballpark last season. Yes, it means I'm putting money into the hands of "Midas" Nutting, but I'm not going to deprive myself of watching games live just to make a statement.

OK, I will give them a fair chance. This Russell seems like a decent guy and a better manager than Tracy, which isn't saying much considering a speck of dirt could be a better manager than Tracy. Plus, the players seem to like him. But I'm not going into it with a major positive attitude - we've been teased and let down too many times over the past 15 years to be anything more than cautiously optimistic.

Borski
04-01-2008, 12:44 PM
OMG people, can you guys not just enjoy a WIN?? yes the team has had 15 loesing seasons in a row and will likley extend that this year but right now we are undefeated.

We are currently better than:

Boston ---------- 1-1
Oakland -------- 1-1
NY Yankees --- 0-0
Toronto --------- 0-0
St. Louis -------- 0-0
Colorado ------- 0-0
LA Angels ------ 0-1
Texas ------------ 0-1
Detroit ----------- 0-1
Baltimore ------- 0-1
Chicago Sox --- 0-1
Chicago Cubs - 0-1
Houston --------- 0-1
Cincinnati ------- 0-1
San Francisco - 0-1
Florida ----------- 0-1
Philadelphia --- 0-1
Atlanta ----------- 0-2

thats 18 teams we are better than. be happy, enjoy it.

Okay, HTG. Perhaps I am being a bit too hard on the Bucs and their new management. 15 years of losing will do that to you. They've been losers, but they're our losers. And we have to support them.

Guess we'll have to wait and see. It is game one out of one hundred and sixty two.

Finding Midwestern baseball fans was fantasic for me. These people honestly don't care if their teams win or lose. They love their teams for what they represent, not for their win and loss records.

It's pretty cool.

Come one guys! Our first game was so intense and so good! I mean we won! When i get to the burgh my dad is looking to get Pens season tickets for us and I am going to look into Pirates season tickets! I cant wait and its not like the steelers with me, with the Bucs no matter if they win or lose its small improvements and such. Lets enjoy this season with the bucs! I think they can break the streak!

I was nearly crucified last season for suggesting that I would rather see the young players we have take their knocks than a group of overpaid divas.

Thank you.

I was nearly crucified last season for suggesting that I would rather see the young players we have take their knocks than a group of overpaid divas.

You have to understand, Crush, that Pirates fans are just tired of the losing and tired of management not spending any money to improve the team. They haven't had a winning season since I started college at WVU back in 1992. So you'll have to forgive us for being a little testy and impatient.

That said, you will not be crucified by me this year. I'm willing to give these guys a chance and see what happens.

Well guys tonight is the second game of the season. We are facing the Atlanta Braves, last game was crazy and intense lets hope this one comes a little easier, but a win is a win. Tom Gorzelanny is our starter tonight, last year he started out 3-0 lets hope he can start this year with a win. Jair Jurrjens is starting for the Braves.
GO BUCS!

I can see it now the headlines "Pirates lose on walk-off homer in ninth"

That game was just crazy, it went all the way to the 9th, when Osoria gave up a leadoff walkoff homer to Jacobs.

"It ultimately came down to one at-bat, that of Marlins first baseman Mike Jacobs in the bottom of the ninth, the score tied at 4-4. Jacobs took a sinker that Franquelis Osoria left high and over the plate and punched it just over the right field wall for a walk-off homer."

We lost 5-4 to the marlins thats just sad.

On the bright side

"Ryan Doumit connected for his first homer of the season"

....

Go Bucs...

6-4 lead in the 9th

How much longer do you think it'll be before opposing pitchers realize that maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't throw McLouth a fastball right down the middle? He's only been hammering everyone's fastball this season, regardless of how hard the pitcher throws. Takashi Saito got c0cky and thought he could blow his 95 MPH fastball by him, and then acts all shocked when McLouth put it in the right field bleachers. Scouting reports, people! The thing is, he should continue to get good pitches to hit if Freddy Sanchez rounds back into his usual .320 form, so he may be able to keep this pace up for a bit.

Anyway, it's a nice win to kick off the road trip. McLouth has been clutch so far this season, and we may finally have our answer in center field (or right field if they trade Nady) if he has a solid season.

Sorry, but it has to be said...

Only the Pirates would acquire a washed-up pitcher and pay him $10 million to stink up the joint every 5 days. Oh that's right, he's "mentoring" the other young starters. My bad...
