    Hey a TC sighting, nice to see ya! And I agree completely, saw it coming a mile away. Although I do dismiss them because not sure their pitching is anywhere close to as good as has looked this season. But we will see.

    I've have a friend who loves anything Pittsburgh, though he is a WV native and has lived in my area all his life. Worships the Steelers and pretty much ignored the Bucs until this year. He spent the entire season posting on his Facebook page, "Wave the Jolly Roger" and calling out Reds fans saying the Reds sucked. He has been very silent lately. I find this typical of Pittsburgh fans. If the Steelers are winning, every house has a Steeler banner and all the talk is about how good they are. When they are losing, it's very quiet. Typical behavior from that fan base. Now, we need to bury them behind the Cubs.

    I think thats typical behavior from any fanbase.

    This collapse couldn't be happening to a worse, more obnoxious fan base. Back where you belong Pirates!

    And Ryan Ludwick. If these were the kind of guys available, I'm glad that Walt did diddylsquat.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
