    Could pirates end with the worst record ever?

    Chad kuhl was the opening day starter.

    K Bryan Hayes hurt.

    They will play Polanco because of his salary, thatís like a pitcher batting.

    Going to be hard but they have a real chance

    Is it that bad.

    Pirates have never been the same since the early 90's.

    last night on the pregame show they were talking about which players they could get value out of at the deadline and it was the 5th game of the season, that should sum it up

    Pirates played a huge April Fool's Day joke when they were undefeated at 1-0.

    Every year I say I'm going to break off some of the roll and just dedicate it to those ass munch teams the need to be faded.

    I never follow through as these things tend to even out.

    It's so pronounced right at the beginning of the season.

    For me and the different contrarian strategies it really puts us in a dilemma. Public starts fading, the bet becomes anyone but them, but the Fund indentifies a spots and then the market moves into trigger territory. Then finally, when they don't trigger, they win.

    As the great Captain Ron always says "I've seen this before, somebody grab his tongue!"

    How can Pirates loose today to Cubs team which has been hitting with less batting average than Pirates this season? OK at most this game is 50-50 but will most probably decided by 1 run

    they have no where to go but down this year. because except for about 2-3 players, they'll look to unload any vets or decent arb players before the deadline and continue to build that farm system

    Just watched the game. Pitching is not good from Pirates and there was a mistake where some Chicago cubs player should have been caught while stealing but he somehow managed to get back to first base. unreal

    Plus the Cubs tried to give them the game in the 8th with 3 straight walks. They were on a 52 win pace last year in the short season and the team is worse. 40-120 (Mets expansion year) is so bad though.

    looks good and when taking only these kind of MLB bets for season every game you should be in profit at end of the season

    32W-130L. Sounds possible but I'm wondering if they can get to 32 wins. This team is a trash bag.
