Re: 2009 Pittsburgh Pirates Season Thread
Does anyone want to take back the mocks, jeers and calls that "it's too early" to count them out that were thrown my way? The Pirates have just one win in their last 10 games, and have fallen to 4 games under .500.
They're no better than last year's team, and ANYONE who thought that hot start meant anything was kidding themselves.
Having said that, it's clear that the team misses Doumit and Wilson in the lineup, and again, we have a manager who insists on playing guys who don't deserve to be in the lineup. What have Moss, Bixler and Vazquez done to warrant significant playing time? Send down Bixler and call up Cruz, sit Moss' ass on the bench and play Monroe and Young. Or better yet, send Moss' ass back to the minors where he belongs. That Jason Bay trade isn't looking too good right now, but no one should be surprised. When was the last time the Pirates made a GOOD trade?
