Sorry about the lack of posts this weekend. I had meant to write up gamethreads for Saturday and Sunday on Saturday afternoon before the wedding, but time sort of got away from me and suddenly I was staring at 12 different pieces of a tux on my bed wondering exactly what went where and how it was going to get there and suddenly, it was time to go. And then I got home tonight and just as I got ready to write the weekend recap post, the internet crapped out for about four hours. And now it’s technically Monday and I haven’t written a post since Friday.
Anyways, the Pirates continued to prove over the weekend that even with their revamped roster, they’re not actually the worst baseball team in the history of time and space and really, they’re probably not the worst baseball team in baseball right now. Even though dropping Sunday’s game to Cincy puts us back in the cellar by a half game, the ugly 1-12 skid that immediately preceded this week feels like it was a loooong time ago.
Seeing the team break out the bats a little bit and rack up some wins against teams that aren’t really that good sets up an interesting series with the Phillies this week. Can they play well against a good team?
