The Pirates defeated the Padres 6-1 yesterday, thus ending Consecutive Losing Season XVI, one that had the Pirates at 50-58 before the break and 17-37 afterwards. Oh well, at least a few former Pirates were involved in important baseball yesterday.
Dejan Kovacevic put the wraps on the year that wasn't and offered a variety of statistics as ghastly as you could imagine given the circumstances, such as "The last-place finish -- 30 1/2 games behind the Chicago Cubs -- was the third in four years, the eighth in these 16 consecutive losing seasons."
No, not even the Buck Commander and his .166-hitting brother could've salvaged this season, one that began with a lineup featuring names like Bay and Nady and ended with names like Cruz, Chavez, and Pearce.
But that's about all I can write for now. We'll have more on the '08 Pirates, as well as Steeler stuff and some Pitt talk just as soon as I can get to the bottom of this bug that's been randomly pushing my text off of the page for some readers. I just love technical issues that I can't solve on a busy Monday morning.

I'm posting here only to comment that this story has been up all day (about 12 hours now) and no one has any comment.

How about this for the Buccos slogan?

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? - Pittsburgh Pirates baseball!!!
