Default Re: Bucs get blanked by a pitcher with a 10.97 ERA??

Why is anyone surprised? They've managed to make scrubs like Matt Belisle (twice), Kyle Lohse, Kameron Loe and now Jeff Weaver look like Cy Young candidates. Maybe if they had a hitting coach who actually knows something about hitting, rather than a former journeyman who barely managed a .230 average for his career, they'd be a little bit better hitting club.

verks - the Pirates cannot use the small market excuse for failure anymore. When you have teams like the As, Twins and Brewers finding ways to win despite playing in small markets (and in the case in the As and Twins, playing in old stadiums), then the Pirates have the ability to be successful as well.
