Pirate Baseball early season report

Per our own Pirate Preview!!! the Pirates would show dismal pitching in 2011. Thus far they have shown anything but. They are 8th in the National League (12th overall) in pitching with an ERA of 3.63, almost a run and a half better than last year's 5.00. Their record is 16-17, still not over the 18 season .500 slump, but better than some other teams being followed by blogateers. Boston is 15-18. San Diego is 13-20. Only the Philadelphia bloggers can gloat at 22-10.

Perhaps more significant, Apple Stores have passed Major League Baseball as America's favorite pastime.

Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future. Niels Bohr

The Pirates are 18-17 on May 10th. Get ready for the World Series… or a plague of locusts.
