Re: 2009 Pittsburgh Pirates Season Thread
The game was blacked out, and I was certainly more interested in the Penguins game tonight.

Two days ago the Tribune Review cited an "informal poll" where Andy LaRoche was the most expected breakout player.

Tonight's fielding faux pas led to 2 runs which didn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.
I'm hardly doomsdaying after tonight's whomping, but I would love to see him get something going here in the first few weeks. The dude has to realize that he won't see August if he doesn't do some serious eye opening.
Promising in the minors... promising spring...
Prove me wrong, Andy!
Mad props to Steel-Bryan for the Bucco sig.
