The Count Down to 17
The above is a leaked image of the Pirates locker room celebration t-shirts the buccos will be wearing after they lose just 13 more games. The Pirates suffered their 69th loss of the season today, a 17-2 loss to the Cubs. Charlie “Saltman” Morton proved our past prognostications to be true as he did indeed rub 10 runs worth of salt in Pirates fans wounds in the first inning of today’s game. We figured today would be a good day to begin the count down to the Pirates 17th consecutive losing season. For the remainder of the season the Bonds threat level will replaced with the count down to 17 widget.
