Just when you think it can't get any worse

along comes today's game.

Is this what it looks like when a team quits on its manager?

I was born in 1957, and so was not sentient for the awful run of Pirates seasons in the 1950s.

I lived in Salem, Va., for four years in the middle '80s, coincident with that run of atrocious seasons, and so have little first-hand memory of it.

That's the good news.

The bad news is, I now have to identify this moment as the lowest I've ever felt as a Pirates fan.

I don't envy Dejan having to write a Q&A tomorrow.

Amazing. The word verification here says:

That's what the Pirates are, an ffn' joek.

It's the hopelessness that gets you. The Royals, at least, have a new GM who, in the early days of his tenure, somehow managed to acquire a decent-looking young player.

Our terrible GM, the worst in baseball, had his contract extended before the season. Our manager is just beginning his three-year contract. Our owners, who now say emphatically that they aren't selling the team, don't tend to fire GMs and managers when they're signed to long-term contracts.
