Welcome to my world. This blog will be a place for me to share the mysterious inner workings of my mind with the internet. Fortunately, the only things bouncing around in there are random thoughts about the Pittsburgh Pirates. I enjoy fiddling with baseball-related graphs and charts, so expect to see plenty of those moving forward. I will be weighing in with opinions on a variety of topics, such as roster moves and specific in-game situations during the season. Expect to see at least two anti-sacrifice bunt rants per year from me, but don’t be surprised to actually find me defending a bunt from time to time. I will also use this space to highlight other work from around the web, weighing in with my own thoughts on any particular topic. And sometimes, this will just be a place to throw your troubles aside and dance.

I love to hear the opinions of others, so be sure to chime in with your thoughts on Twitter (@MBandi) or in the comments section here. With spring training just around the corner, I am looking forward to another fun year of Pirates baseball.
