But I didn’t expect 1988 either. I’m enjoying it as much as I can.

Which is why Marte is such a treat to watch. That’s what we haven’t had, and why I enjoy watching most of these players this year. Some of them aren’t there yet, from a confidence standpoint (Alvarez, McDonald, Mercer, etc) and others don’t have the talent (Tabata, Gorky’s, Presley – notice a pattern?)
Like Hurdle says, I try not to have expectations. I just like to watch and see who stands out, and who proves they aren’t ready or don’t have it. Doesn’t mean they can’t get it – but it’s obvious to watch and see.
I don’t know if they’ll make the post-season or not but if they do I’ll be there. Hopefully waiting to see Gerrit Cole throw his first post-season pitch.

I tried to point out that I felt this was still a team that had some problems and in no way was this franchise complete but was roundly criticized because I didn’t blindly fall into step with the true believers.
Hell, I want this team to win as much as anybody else and when they lose I’m in a funk until they win again but that doesn’t mean I walk around with blinders on.
I hope that the Pirates become a solid franchise and post winning records every year from now on but I also hope that nobody ever takes winning for granted.

What made it a no brainer for me was the minor league system, I thought and still think there is a lot of depth in the system. Marte is a good example of depth. I am concerned about the team running out of gas, can’t lie about that and if they don’t make it, IMO that will be the primary reason.

I had gotten back to the ‘good old days’ when I EXPECTED the Buccos to win. It was nice to feel that way again.

Friday and Sunday kinda cancelled each other out and Marquis just pitched a great game on Sat. Hey, even Bedard can throw a 2 hitter! :)

I am hoping we can at least split with the Dodgers and take 2 of 3 from Stl. Tough week ahead!

I’m a believer and feel sure we can go 18-30 or better from here on out. I want a winning season, and playoffs would be icing on the cake.
