IMO, when the Pirates get to some pitchers that everyone hits and they still can’t hit them and I don’t mean one here or there, I will say they need some help, also if these guys hit to their lifetime averages and the Pirates still don’t score runs, I will believe they can’t hit, right now I am going with the opposing pitching as the biggest problem.
Today and through Friday, every pitcher they face has an ERA around 2, good luck hitting them, even if you have the 27 Yankees in Pirate uniforms.

San Diego lite up Strasburg yesterday and we barely mustered 2 runs against him.

getting a few series where they start with someones 3 and end up with
their 5, hitting against aces most of the time will make any offense
look bad, if the league can’t hit these guys, what makes anyone think
the Pirates can? How many times do they have to come up against teams with pitchers with ERA’s at 2 or below?

AP has been terrible and moving Jones to the RF is a potential solution. 1B is an issue that Fox/Hague/McGehee may solve…

Referring to the Front Office as morons hinders his point, as you said, but the rest… meh… couldn’t hurt.

Option McLouth and Navarro to AAA and bring up Fox/Mercer (even though these morons have him playing 2B in AAA). If Mercer comes up let him start a few games to see what he can do, can’t be worse than Barmes offensively or defensively.
