***Official 2018 Pittsburgh Pirates Thread*** Back to being the Bucs

85 posts in this topic

Interesting note on MLB payroll---It stands at $150M per team on average. The Bucs and the Brewers are both at about the $100M mark. But it's pretty clear one franchise has leveraged their salaries well, and has the NL's best record as of July 6th. The other remains stuck with a .473 winning percentage.

Last 44 games for the Bucs (14-30)----a 5.03 staff ERA.

Last 44 for Milwaukee (27-17)-----a 3.61 staff ERA.

The Pirates are 30-45 so far this season vs NL clubs. Maybe they need more games against the weak AL Central.

This is GM Neal Huntington's 11th full year on the job.

The club has an 812-897 record during his tenure. That is .475 baseball, or a season average of 77-85. They've not won a division title in that span.

Otherwise, all is just fine with Pirates ownership, who don't appear concerned though this has won thin with the dwindling fan base.

Nice five game sweep of Milwaukee.

Curiously, the Bucs staff maintains a road ERA of 4.93, in contrast to their 3.85 ERA in home games. A full run per game lower at home.
