The Official 2017 Pirates Thread

Welcome to the Official 2017 Pirates thread. This thread is for talking all things Buccos; predictions, highs, lows, and everything in between.


I am a little late this year in getting this thread started but I am interested in seeing how this year goes and the fun back and forth with my fellow HPAers.

...but those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. -Isaiah 40:31

Always optimistic, usually disappointed.

Tough division they are in. Outfield should be good, infeild fair, depending on who's at third. Pitchings the big ??

Well, down by 5, they made a game of it... Big inning killed them again. But it is still early to be optimistic.


I really think Cutch, the face of the franchise is really struggling. What is going on with that guy?

Cutch is not clutch. Reason they tried trading him. Grow the ---- hair back!

I agree Cutch needs to show something this year or I think we're in real trouble. After yesterday it looks like another slow start again for him. I don't want to hear complaints about switching positions or whatever, just hit the ---- ball. If he at least performs this year we can at least get something for him in trade.

Taillon pitched a heckuva game last night, as did our bullpen (Watson and Bastardo excluded in that statement) but our offense is a concern. I know it's only the second game, I just hope they find their stride soon.

Marte with a bomb of a walk off HR. Nice to see a little fight in them today. I still feel like they'll finish below .500 again, but it's nice to see them win. I feel like I'm holding my breath with their pitching all the time.
