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


You argue many things. Most seem to be based on little or no facts. You can think what you want, but I do not agree that Wade Lebanc is an alien sent from Hron 5, sent to infect the city of Pittsburgh with a flesh eating fungus.

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.

I wrote them off before the season started, so no knee-jerk reactions from me. Still a punchless offense with an even more punchless bench and a staff full of question marks.
Utah, get me two.

Cutch being a human pile of feces doesn't help

No it sure doesn't. But it is still a weak offense.

Current Rankings:
29th SLG
28TH OPS
28TH Total Bases
30TH HR
30TH XBH

I realize it is a small sample size but I really don't expect these numbers to improve all that much as the year progresses.

I would expect them to be in the top half of the NL. Polanco and Cutch are well below where we need them and Marte has a chance to better his year from last year. Josh Bell is a .577 in OPS right now too, which should improve but I'm still not hopeful on his power.

I would think most teams have players under-performing and players they hope improve on last year's number. Sadly, I don't see this offense being in the top half of the NL.

You're just trolling now, and I noticed you've also avoided my question multiple times of if you are a former poster here.

Me thinks you are.

Outside of Marte's walkoff HR Sunday, the last earned run for the Pirates that was knocked in by a hit, was Jordy Mercer singling in a run in the 2nd inning on Saturday. The offense sucks.

They were in the top half last year, and did not have Kang all year...plus Cutch sucked until September last year.

...Says the guy claiming batting Jordy Mercer leadoff makes perfect sense.

Yoy.
