You guys hangin' out? I'll hang out.

Desperation is a stinky cologne    

The upshot of the recent Pittsburgh-Atlanta trade of Nate Mclouth for Gorkys Park and a couple minor prospects is that I've learned that this year, the Pirates could tie the Phillies for the all-time longest streak of losing seasons, at 16. That's a long, long time to suck.

Adam LaRoche nicely captures the bleak, hopeless reality that is Pirates Baseball as he says, "It's kind of like being with your platoon in a battle, and guys keep dropping around you. You keep hanging on, hanging on, and you've got to figure: How much longer till you sink?"

Mr. LaRoche then returned to his task of painting his fingernails black and huffing paint.

Pride. Passion. Pittsburgh Pirates.
