I will remind you of how bad the Phillies are at every opportunity. Every single one!!!!

I pretty much hate all things Philadelphia.

On that note, how 'bout those 12-2 Metsies. Pretty good team, a lot of depth, and they aren't even playing particularly well right now. First time I've been excited to watch them since 2015.
If at first you don't succeed, give up. There is no hope for you.

If Rosario learns how to throw to first and how to take a pitch, he's going to be a perennial allstar.

If.

What, no talk of the Bucs? Traded away the stars to put a team on the field. So far so good. Reminds me of a Steve McQueen movie quote, guy falls form a 20 story building.....passing each window he says "so far so good". As the Bucs most like will, he found the bottom floor.
So I got that going for me...which is nice. It's a cross between Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent and Northern California Sensimilla so you can play 36 holes on it,take it home at night and get stoned to the begesses belt

I think the Pirates have a real chance of making the postseason. If they go .500 the rest of the way they will be an 89 win team. That's not a lock for the wildcard but it's a good position to be in.

You might need to work that math out a bit. Without even knowing their record, I know that can't be right. An 89-win team finishes 16 games over .500 (89-73).
Fire Alex Cora. (On hold pending further review)

Sorry, they are an 84 win team (assuming that the odd game is a loss since you can't round). Still, they are close to the number they need for a wildcard if if they run at .500.

Let's see where they are in a week.

In terms of evaluating a team this early, I'm more of a RS-RA guy than a W-L guy.

The Pirates W-L is a little flukey. They're allowing about 4.5 runs a game, which isn't horrible, but isn't great either. But they're scoring nearly 6 runs a game, which is ridiculous. There's no way they can continue to score runs at that pace. How much that drops off will indicate their chances. If they can average 5 runs a game over the season (which is very good) they may have a shot.

Yes dad, the Bucs are scoring ONLY six runs a game. I expect once the cobwebs are gone they will up that to eight or nine a game. The pitching should round in to an era. of near seven so they should win 88% of the remaining games. Unless it freezes over......

I haven't yet cancelled my order of ten thousand "2018 World Series Champion Pittsburgh Pirates" ballcaps; however, the Pirates have feasted mostly on bottom dwellers thus far.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.
