Even with 19 consecutive losing seasons by the Pirates, I still get pumped for opening day.......I know the Buccos, nosed dived after the all-star break last year but still at least they showed some kind of life leading the NL Central at the break.....I still don't expect the post-season from the Pirates this year but I do think this Pirates team has a good shot to finish over 500......First up the Phillies at PNC Park this Thursday.......Come on Buccos end the 19 years of misery....lol

I'm bumping this thread....come on lets keep some Pirates talk going.....Bucs with back to back walk off hits to win the 2 out of the 3 against the goons from Philly.....lol Presley last night in the bottom of the 10th and McCutchen in the bottom of the 9th today.......Great series for the Pirates....They pitched well and executed situational baseball....moving runners over at key times....Not much power on this Pirates team so manufacturing runs will be key all-season.....Nice start to the season and lets move on to LA to face the Dodgers.......

I love the Bucs....but I honestly haven't watched much baseball in years. I can only name a couple of current Pirates. I can still remember almost every player from the 80's teams. I still remember my first game at 3Rivers when Omar walked and my dad told me watch him he's going to steal second on the next pitch. It happened and I thought my dad was a baseball God.

I hope I can teach my son about baseball someday, but it will not happen unless they are winners. Glad to see they are off to a good start, but I will temper my expectations until early August.

The Pirates have a ton of young talent (especially in their minor league system)......This is the time to start following this team.......This current team isn't far of from finally finishing over .500 if things go their way this year.....The Bucs pitching staff pitched very well in the first half of the season last year and the Pirates were even in first place in the NL central at the all-star break.....The pitching staff did break down in the 2nd half of the season last year........This Pirates team is going to be scrappy bunch all year and really its an easy team to root for and its going to be fun to watch this team grow......

The Pirates won 5-4 tonight despite being down twice tonight vs the Rockies.....The Pirates are just 7-9 but have been competitive in all games this year.......The Pirates starting pitching staff has an ERA of 2.80 but is only 2-7...........

It's just depressing to see the Pirates loose again this year...I love the Pirates, but I started watching the nationals recently just to have some excitement!

Pirates need to start winning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come on people the Pirates need some love.....They're a game above .500 and only three games out of first place.......They just took 2 out of 3 in Milwaukee and Miller Park has been a house of horrors for the Buccos the last five years......This team is going to compete all year......Andrew McCutchen is one of the best players in baseball and James McDonald has made tremendous strides this year......

Finally this might be the year the Pirates have a winning record.......

Considering there isn't much around Andrew McCutchen, I think Andrew should be the NL MVP so far.........The bats have started to heat up but for the first couple months Andrew was the Pirates offense........Another three hits for him tonight which puts his BA over .350.........
