Remember in July when the Pirates were flying high, dipping in and out of 1st place in the NL Central?
Remember in July of last season when the Pirates were flying high, dipping in and out of 1st place in the NL Central?
Two seasons in a row the Pirates have quickly downward spiraled out of relevance. The pitching went to shit and the bats continued not to hit. This is now 20 consecutive losing seasons. That is horrible. Two decades worth of losing in Pittsburgh and that trend doesn't have much hope of stopping anytime soon.
Their pitching staff isn't good enough. Their offense isn't good enough. Their manager isn't good enough. I feel bad saying this, but they suck.
