Have chance to reach .500 despite not being a good team AND have your best pitcher (so far) on the mound. Promptly get nearly no-hit by a team that had been in a four-game losing streak. Bonus points for the opposing pitcher being J.A. Happ, whom the Pirates picked up during the summer during one of their playoff years. And he was awesome down the stretch and then they didn't try to be competitive in attempting to sign him during the off-season. Which is when I learned that ownership wasn't serious in doing their part to keep the team in contention with the top ones in the league.

Oh, and Todd Frazier is 0-7 in two games. Looks like an over-the-hill guy who needs taken out and shot.

Huh, the Pittsburgh Pirates: superior to the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees. Suck it, bitches!

Huh, .500 on April 25. Wouldn't have expected that this year. Kudos on them for trying harder than Nutting ever will to pick up wins.

Above .500 now. And without Hayes for most of the season so far. While there is a good chance of a 10-50 slump at some point, it is a nice surprise to see them doing better than the teams most on here cheer for at any point after, say, the first two days of the season.

Todd Frazier: Currently 1-27 at the plate. Scratching my head trying to figure out what value he brings to the team as opposed to, say, some unseasoned potential prospect who might not be ready for the bigs yet (or ever), but at least could give the impression that the team is trying to do something other than fail.

Lol, right now, The ToddFather is making that Bauers guy you all totally despise look like Teddy Frickin' Williams. Something tells me that when he's released, his new occupation will be sitting on a barstool in Toms River, telling stories about how he used to be a Little League World Series hero while Glory Days is playing on the jukebox on repeat.
