How the Pirates can beat the Brewers in Miller Park is a real puzzle, the cast for each team has chanced over the years, but the results are the same.
Many people think the field does not matter, but they are wrong, the field does matter.

I thought it was odd because he’s an on air employee and they do not say those kind of things (usually) unless they are given the ok by management.

Even if it were a pure talent argument, a replacement level team ought to win 33% of games, at minimum. Something’s fishy.

Sign stealing, light tampering, who knows.
