This team was an avalanche of bad signs before ST even started. I mean if you are gonna rebuild....then fucking rebuild. This Kenny Williams patchwork crap is old and tiresome. None of these guys have earned a big day....none of them. So get what you can for them and move on.

That pix was from a regular season Pit game from a non Covid year.

Nothing to see here.

Nice view though of the river. CF landscaping was well done. Spelled correctly.

Winkler comes in and promptly walks the bases loaded against the middle/bottom of the lineup. Loves to see it

Have to admit I did not see the turnaround coming with Kimbrel. From gas-can, to - albeit a small sample size - 4.2 innings of 9k and 0BB, no runs.

Lol we finally have a dominant closer and defense but of course - no offense.

It is short sample but he looks more explosive. Hit 98 today this early in the season is a good sign.

Might be dangerous but I wouldn't mind seeing Maples as the 8th inning guy. He seems stable as of now and the guy pegged is Workman who has been rubbish.

The guys that I am trusting with the lead right now are Mills, Chafin and Kimberl. With Maples, Ross really needs to start mixing into more games that matter.

Wick was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. (4/1/2021)

Injury: Oblique, 10-Day IL

Same injury as last year. He didn't take part in S/T. He is not going to be a realistic option until June.
