What Sophmore Jinx?

Andrew McCutchen does not appear to be suffering from any sophmore jinx. With a .336/.390/.522/.913 and 12 SB (3 CS) and fielding well, he is doing better than last year. He leads the NL in SB, 7th...

Lack of Talent Killing the Bucs

I watched the last game of Spring Training where the Bucs played the Phils (since it was free om MLB TV). My comment at the time was that it seemed to me that the Buc's had alot less talent on...

Time to Jump on the Milledge Bandwagon?

Game winning hit last night, great attitude, nice defense, hitting .275! How about we stop waiting for Tabata and start enjoying Milledge? Aside from lack of power, he is doing everything we could...

Some Observations from Today's Pirates vs. Phillies Spring Training Game

  With MLB having the game on free, I had a chance to see the Buccos for the first time this year. While one game does not represent a true sample, some personal observations:   1) Yea, we will...

Pearce, Moss, or Raynor?

So with Young looking like he will make the team (and Ramon Vazquez to be traded or released), that leaves the 3 Amigoes fighting for the last bench spot. Each has not really impressed much with...

Don't Look Back!

I, for one, am taking a pledge to stop talking about the past. No more evaluation of the Littlefield era, past bad teams, or argue if a trade was good or bad. No more lamenting about Bay, Wilson,...

Any FA's Left for the Bucs?

Looking over the list of FAs still unsigned, I was thinking that now is the time NH was waiting for. He indicated he would wait until near Spring Training and see who he could get on the cheap. I...

2010 is an Important Year for John Russell

  Besides being an important year for the Bucs, I think this is an important year for John Russell. For the past 2 years, he has had to hold the team together as experienced players were traded...

A Must Read about the Royals

Via baseballcrank, he links to this 9000 word review of the Royals past 10 years. Quite a nice writeup of their past 10 years of heartbreak. The Bucs have had a similar bad 10 years, but I like...

Garrett Jones vs. Nate McLouth

When the Bucs brought up McCutchen, they also traded Nate. While it might have looked like they were doing so to give Andrew the job in center, what they actually did was trade Nate so that Garrett...

What If 20101 Lineup

What if NH had not made any of the rades he did in 2008/2009? If we had kept Bay, Nady, Marte, etc thru the end of this season and then lost them via FA. My assumptions: All players who were...

The Team with the Most Disappointing Season?

Yes, the Bucs had another losing year. But I don't think they had the most disappointing season. By disappointing, I mean a team that expected to do well and didn't. Or a team that expected to...

How Did Jim Tracy Get So Smart?

IMHO, Jim Tracy was an awful manager for the Bucs. That being said, his record with the Dodgers was .527 and now with the Rockies it’s .667! With the Pirates it was .417. So either he gets dumb...

Matt Wieters Update
