Andrew McCutchen is pretty awesome, and so is Gerrit Cole, and you could do worse than liking the Pirates as your second team, but… let’s bury these fuckers in an early-May shallow grave somewhere off the I-70 way southeast of dahntahn.

  1. Juan Francisco is Canada’s Big Papi!

  2. Tolleson nice!

  3. A triple????!?!??!?!

  4. That’s why the eight man bullpen is retarded as fuck.

  5. Tolleson you magnifcent sumbitch!

    You just did more in one AB than Sierra all year!

  6. Tolleson for mayor!

  7. Pirates announcer guaranteeing another run for them… if he wasnt probably right I’d say challenge accepted.

  8. Reyes wuz robbed!

  9. Smoked that ball.

  10. It’s gonna be a fun series if it carries on like this.

  11. Pittsburgh announces said Dickey isn’t just a knuckleballer, he’ll throw in a fastball and curveball every now and then. According to Fangraphs he hasn’t thrown a curveball since 2009.

  12. Filthy.

  13. The Beard is weird, or something supportive, go Jays

  14. Lunch box!

  15. Lunchbox!

  16. Lunchbox!

  17. hahaha, 3 great minds

  18. Cue a DJF Sniderboner.

  19. Finish him

  20. FUCK YES!

  21. [collective sigh of relief]

  22. Fuckin A!
    Never mind he had the prev batter struck out. Cunty ump

  23. DelaTextBook

  24. Ah Bean, I see what you mean about the looping. Went right back to the Snide AB when McCutchen came up. That’s kind of annoying.

  25. Aha. Welcome to the bigs Sandler. Now throw that cheese, meat.

  26. Break his heart boys.

  27. OK Goggles no mercy

  28. A few recent Tablerisms:
    “He’s really filling up that box.”
    “He went soft then he went hard.”
    Wonder if Buck’s got a chubby.

  29. I loved this goggled man.

  30. Which reliever chokes and cost us another late lead that we’ve returned the favor 0 times already this yr? I pray we don’t see Santos.
    Anyone notice he’s lights out…..when the game has already been decided for the other team

  31. Sit yo ass down, Sanny!

    Wonder if we will Cecil come back out for another inning, or if will throw out Meat Junkins since it’s the 8th and 9th hitters.

  32. I have ball park envy. PNC is nice.

  33. I’m not real comfortable with the bunt with two out. Just sayin’.

  34. Unsweepable!

  35. Can we please leave in Cecil for the 9th

  36. Josh Harrison was standing a mile from the plate there.

  37. Really, that’s how you pronounce Melancon?

  38. Melky has a hit in every game but two. In one of those two he had one at bat before taking it in the shin.

    That’s fucking nails.

  39. C’mon Jose, jerk one for shits and giggles.

  40. The Melkman always looks like he’s gonna bite someone.
    I hope we don’t see Santos.
    Annie’s is far superior to Kraft Dinner.

  41. Here comes Santos. Pittsburgh wins!

  42. Do. Not. Fuck. This. Up.

  43. Id love to see Santos just silence the morons.

  44. I do hope Mr. Santos craps on your whinging.

  45. Nnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

    Single, walk, wild pitch, strikeout, double, strikeout, single game over. Pirates win 6-5.

  46. Whisky time!

  47. LOL please don’t make a prophet out of us Santos

  48. Nice K

  49. Nice slider.

  50. Filthy Santos

  51. You got the toughest guy out of the way. Finish em

  52. Fuck

  53. unreal, how many games is he going to cost us?

  54. Shut. Up.

  55. Fucking told ya. This fuck is useless. No sense watching them anymore until they tie a can to this sack of shit.

  56. whelp…

  57. Y’know, it occurs to me that Santos might not be closer material. Just a hunch.

  58. I don’t fucking believe this.

  59. Oh for fuck sake. Just fuck off already. Jesus fucking Christ.

  60. Hurry back, Casey

  61. Unbelievable.

  62. K, Cecil as closer until Jansen returns? This has to be the end

  63. why god why

  64. Ah, Santos. Isn’t this the point where he goes to the DL for the rest of the season?

  65. Is Santos’s ERA over 9 yet? He’s so shit that it has actually become funny. It’s like watching a Latino Kevin Gregg.

  66. That “steel trap” comment Buck made? I always thought my dad made that up! Dammit.

    Also, my MLB TV is so loopy that it keeps jumping into the top of the 9th with Bautista @ bat. WTF.

    • Kept going to Mark Melancon’s entry into the game for me. Did you know he saved 20 games for the Astros one year? Heard that a few times tonight.

  67. I’m not upset at a tie (well, I guess I am because our closer didn’t close) but I hate it when we’re down at this point because I lack faith in a late inning comeback.

  68. When do we win one like this?

    Everybody is clutch against us and gets what they need when they need it.

    We cant do it back once, it makes me sick

  69. Unbelievable.

  70. Hahaha go pirates!!!

  71. Fuck you, you fucking fuck.


  73. Bullpen needs to get on a plane and then crash.

  74. unreal

  75. whelp x2

  76. And the bullpen was supposed to be the one thing that worked. Amazing how badly the front office has misjudged the strength and weakness of this team. They ran an 8-man bullpen to the detriment of the bench and all they do is cough up games.

  77. Santos is a piece of shit.

  78. You fucking piece of shit

  79. Called it. 6-5 Pirates.
    This useless piece of shit cunt has to be DONE

  80. What the effin’ fuck?!?

  81. Go fucking die in a fire santos. You piece of shit. Fucking walk to philly. Start after the game.

  82. Time for Wilner to tell us Tom Henke had 55 blown saves. Right.

    • We need Aqua Velva material in save situations.

      Good ol’ nostalgia distracting me from dire straits.

  83. Fuck me running. That sucks.

  84. When is Janssen back?

  85. what a great trade that was getting santos, another blown lead

    I guess we have no closer but at least we have 4 long men.

  86. Ugh. That was a bad ending to a well fought game.

    • It was a complete shitball clusterfuck by ONE GUY after the game was as good as won.

      That has to be punished.

  87. Played such a great game up to that point. Fuck you Santos.

  88. Well that’s the end of Santos in any kind of high leverage situation.

    I don’t see how they can put him out there in anything but a blowout.

  89. unbelievable, slider to McCutchen could have been rocked too.

  90. “Mike, why does Gibbons keep running Santos out there?”

    “Who else would you put out there? Thanks for your call”

    Wilner’s first call tonight.



  92. Well that sucked.

    Oh well. Not a big surprise to lose that game. You’d just hope it wouldn’t be that way.

  93. It happens. It’s baseball.

    It’s still ri-goddamn-diculous.

  94. You know…I like the IDEA of the Blue Jays.

  95. Time to drink after that one.

  96. our 2014 Jays

    No lead is safe to the last out and any late deficit is insurmountable

    we have to a have a 7 run lead to exhale, it just unreal that even by chance how many teams have been clutch against us and we cant get a break.

    Just fucking disgusting

  97. Please never use Santos in the 9th ever again. Ever.
