Cutch looks like complete shit. You can't keep batting him there much longer.

Polanco is laughably bad in the field

Worse than the offense that isn't distracted by the absence of Kang?

Neal's bullpen is off to a rough start.

Can this season end already?

The offense is really hard to watch.. 1-4 is entertaining enough, but after that it's just weak AF. That said the 3 and 4 hitters each have 1 RBI, that's just not going to get it done.
Baseball is like our nation's government.. They are both horribly broken and unfair systems.. ZING!

As the dust settles, 3 of the 7 members of the bullpen have ERAs above 6.00.

I'm going to stick with my initial belief that this bullpen was not going to be very good, and Neal Huntington's luck at assembling bullpens by throwing arms against a wall and seeing what stuck was finally running out.

Is Neal Huntington fired yet?

Forbes says the Pirates are valued at a record $1.25 billion, making them the 17th most valuable MLB franchise.

So there's that.

Imagine if the Braves didn't hand this team two victories.

I'm not panicking yet, we aren't even twice through the rotation yet and there are a lot of things that seem abnormal across the league so far. The Twins are good, the Giants suck, the D-Backs are 7-2.

Only one of those 3 guys would qualify as throwing arms against the wall. Your theory still looks dumb. You said this was one of the worst bullpens put together over the years. It is not.

I would argue that you are actually in the minority, in assuming this pen is going to be good.

Yes. It's good to separate knee-jerk in-game venting (which I am guilty of) from actual sky-is-falling scenarios. I'm not even writing Glasnow off yet, much less the team.
