The radio sports show that I listen to is being swamped with calls from fans suggesting what the Pirates should do to get out of their present tail spin and back to their winning ways.
The Pirates have lost six of their last eight games.
No one wants to say out loud the word “collapse,” but many are thinking the word. That’s what happens when a professional baseball team has been a losing team the last 20 seasons.
No one is in a panic. The Pirates still have the best record in baseball. They only need to win 10 more games to have a winning season. And there are still around six weeks to go in this season.
It’s just that many fans want the Pirates who won nine out of eleven games a few weeks ago to please stand up.
