Well, here we are. Watching other teams in the post-season, wondering how it would feel, and cursing the epic collapse that "could never happen" when the Pirates were 16 games over .500. ...

NYC Bucs Dugout Mini-Gathering?

3

So I looked at the Pirates-Mets Schedule, saw that the Thursday, 27 September 2012 game is at 1:10 and said, "What the heck?" Got leave from work and am planning on going. Anyone care to make a mini-gathering? The ticket prices are here: http://newyork.mets.mlb.com/ticketing/dynamic_pricing.jsp?c_id=nym&layout=gameflow#date=09/24/2012 Unfortunately, since its the Mets last home game, tickets are expensive. (Fortunately, the way the Mets are playing, getting seats should not be a problem.) I was planning 1B or 3B line but am open to good ideas. Reply below or shoot me an e-mail at address in profile.

Bucco Book Club - Calico Joe

Well, the Bucs got swept by the Padres, the offense would have trouble hitting its way out of a wet paper sack, we're now out of the 2nd wild card spot, and to hear some, baseball life as we know...

McLouth Happy to Be Back

according to the Bradenton Herald. Also, the teams official site reports that all but one of the position players have arrived early, thus getting physicals and admin stuff out of the way so that they can actually start practices early.

Spring Training, Baby!!

All is right with the world. If you are particularly committed to the Bucs, the Bradenton Herald link is: http://www.bradenton.com/

Best and Worst Free Agent Signings?

Here's the opinion of one LA sports writer. Before you read the article, write down the free agents the Pirates "just should have signed" and at what price. Would your deal be among the best or the worst? The Pirates are on the list - can you guess how? * Are we there (spring training) yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

The Off-Season Chart for Pitchers

This is just a crap shoot. If you don't want to be depressed for a few weeks, don't think about a) our starting rotation at the beginning of 2012 or b) the gap before the recently-drafted talent...

Pirates Pitching Puttering Last Year?

I don't know what to say about this. They're pitchers, not athletes, but you'd think that they'd realize that conditioning is important for durability in the game and in the season.

Yes, I know I'm a day early, but this is a nice story about a squid (gawd love 'em) playing football for Penn State. After last years post, I realized that I'd been leaving off a very important vet: Trogs - U.S. Army (Ret), U.S. ArNG Mrs. Trogs - U.S. Army, U.S. Army Reserves (1984-1991) Trogs, Jr. - U.S. AIR FORCE???? Dang kid learned nothing from his parents, we expect him to head out in a month or too.
