Opening Day

The Pirates snatch one late from the Cardinals, and we're off and running for another season. Hard to see the ballclub turning out anything worthwhile this season but, hey, why not root for them again.

In early May they're playing the Mets in the new ballpark in Queens (Citi Field*) and so I'll get to see them there. God, I hope it ends up being Maholm's turn that Saturday. Also, hopefully I can catch the Altoona Curve when they swing through Connecticut in June.

Yeah, Pittsburgh baseball. Party like it's 1999! Or 1993, or 2008. Or really whatever year in there. They all kind of blur together. Oh hey, the Steelers re-signed Keyaron Fox today!

*Insert your own sardonic joke!

As usual, I will be closely following Pirates baseball until they do enough obviously terrible things to turn me off of them for the remainder of the season (the primary example of this being the summer they got swept by the Royals during interleague play).

Yeah, that was rough.
