I get that the Astros are slowly turning into one of the 5-10 more hateable teams in the league but you cannot root for the Red Sox against us. We are nowhere near that tier yet. I'll give you practically anyone else in the AL, but not the loving Red Sox or Yankees.

The cubsposters were right, I feel like it's just fomenting our own insurrection by trying to convince folks we aren't the villains, pal.

I mean....yeah, slot us in right behind Red Sox, Yankees, Cardinals and Cubs...Osuna kinda tips the balance on that one. But...at least let us win back to back before you say "gently caress the Yankees? More like, gently caress the Astros!"

We gave you Musgrove, we deserve at least another year or two of Pirates fans support!

I still feel bad hearing about Moran's struggles, given how they had to rebuild the poor guy's face, miss a World Series run, and then get traded.

Most avid Pirates watchers arent as down on the guy as I am, fwiw. He also did show some power toward the years end when he backed off the plate a bit.

And at this point he is whats standing between third base and alleged rapist Jung Ho Kang so I hope he develops a consistent stroke and finds a way to play serviceable defense very quickly.

LET ME IN

Last year's world series winner is always the villain. The only time I ever rooted for a repeat was the Phillies in 09, and only because of the alternative.
