    These trades won’t matter. The pirates season officially ended today losing to the Philies 3 times. 4 1/2 games to much to overcome. Close to dropping below 500. 19 years of losing get Nutting out of town. Bring Cuban

  2. Ryan says:

    Wow, Corey, it’s a little early to give up. They play the Cubs four games in a row, then the Padres I believe. They could easily be close to first or in frist again after that stretch.

    Please go to Steelers training camp and watch your Steelers preseason games and jump off the bandwagon. This is a special season and still can be.
