Too bad Zagurski got sent down, coulda started him tonight. His first pitch he could've pivoted over and fastballed one right at the Cincinnati dugout. That ought to finally send the message.

@wkkortas You're right, you just handed me my ass. I'll be honest, my lifetime of ambivalence occasionally bleeds over into how I think about this current group and I get impatient. Alas that's why baseball is unlike the other games, patience is king.

"[T]he Pirates have recognized that there's a problem and that things need to be shaken up ASAP; it's just that the problem has been apparent for two weeks and they waited until they were three games out of a playoff spot with 34 games left."
We all know it but this is symptomatic of the overall mindset plaguing this organization. Always too conservative, always slow to react (let alone be marginally proactive), never bold, never creative. If we accept the financial landscape that is MLB, the Pirates simply cannot afford to behave in the ways I just listed. When you start the race a lap down it takes more than just "doing things right and competing" to make up ground.
I used to think I'd settle for 82 but realized that's JV bull. They'll probably backslide into it this year and next year start another 15-20 year cycle. That's what the Phillies of old did: http://bbref.com/pi/shareit/mQGXZ
Hopefully there's at least a World Series appearance at the end of it like there was for them.
