Seriously, it seems like they look good at the end of every season. It's just the 100 or so games they lost earlier in the season that hurts them. LOL

Right..........and what follows after we start looking good at the end of another pointless and lost season?

Here it is..........."Well, hopefully this team can carry it over into next season". Same old, same old.

LOL Exactly! We've been carrying it over until next season for about 14 years now. But in the summer, they're the only game in town so it's still fun to go to the ballpark every once and a while.

Well, we just swept the Mets; that is something to build on. I really think that next year we'll be over .500. The Bucs have won 9 of their last 11 1-run games.

Actually, they are 13-3 in one-run games since the All-Star break, as well as 17-8 at home. I give credit where credit is due - they have played really good baseball since then and have beaten up on some pretty decent teams. I think they are one good, power-hitting left-handed batter away from making a little noise next year, because I really believe our starting pitching will be very good next season now that they all have a full season under their belts and have made strides since the break.

If you go to pittsburghsports.net right now, you can see a guy who thinks everything the Bucs have done in the second half is nothing but pure luck. It's actually kind of fun watching his wriggle when we attack his arguments.

Personally, I don't believe it's "pure luck". I would hope after having a pathetic first half a team could at least end the season on a good note. Our problem is that we can never carry it over to the next season. That remains to be seen. I have no problem with somebody believing they will end up under .500 once again next season. That's completely understandable. Prove to us that you can actually carry it over to next season for once and you wouldn't have that particular problem. I do have a problem with somebody stating that it's "pure luck" that we are starting to play better ball compared to the first half of the season.

IMO there are some really good reasons why the Bucs are playing well.... Gorzellany. Snell. Paulino. Sanchez. Bay.

The players are maturing, they're getting better under Tracy. I agree with X-Term, one really good power hitter away. We need a guy who can give us a 50-50 chance to win a game with one swing in a late inning. 6 or 7 of those swings, plus a natural progression in talent of the guys we have, and the Bucs will be worth driving 5 hours to see.

Of course it's not luck. I say that because I don't believe in luck.

"Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet."

or

"I've noticed that the more I practice, the luckier I get."
