Tonight’s regularly scheduled frustration

About a week ago, after the Pirates lost their first game to the Cubs, my dad made a comment about how far 82 wins seemed from 72, even with a lot of the season left. My response was that even 74 or 75 wins would seem a lot closer. The Pirates obviously haven't won a game since that conversation and now 74 or 75 wins seems like it's about a million miles away today. 

AJ Burnett pitches against Homer Bailey tonight in a game that still somehow has playoff implications, as the Dodgers, Cardinals, and Pirates freefall towards the Brewers and Cardinals. First pitch at 7:10. Watch at your own risk.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
