I know, I know.  Baseball sucks and Pirates fans are assholes.

Still, this team definitely has my interest.  Kudos to them for making the season interesting up til the all-star break. Remains to be seen if Nutting will actually pay to keep the team in contention, but with the lockout, he has a golden oppotunity to cash in.

Wow.  I expected the Pirates to improve but I never thought they'd be part of an actual pennant race.  If they play .500 ball the rest of the way the 'Burgh will boast the reigning coaches of the year in hockey and baseball, and I cannot be convinced that Tomlin didn't deserve it in the NFL either.

IMO this turnaround began around the time they brought up Neil Walker last year.  Even though they still sucked, there started to be exciting play by young guys and it was worth tuning in.  Starting pitching was often quite good for 5 or 6 innings, but then it blew up more often than not. 

It remains to be seen whether ownership/management has a commitment to winning and as soon as important contracts come up, we'll know what's up.

I'll take a crack at that one...they'll let them go to the Yankees, Red Sox, or Phillies and the Pirates will suck again. I'm jaded from 20 years of futility.

If you're the catcher, you have to make that tag - no excuse.  It might have been a bad call, but the catcher could have made it a moot point.  I don't think replay would have helped that.

I agree.  Why a swipe tag?  I dislike it most of the time anyway.  Just put the glove down there and leave it, they're gonna slide into it 99% of the time, and the other 1% you're in position to move the glove where you need it.
