MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at New York Mets Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone. Hope your Tuesday is going well. My Tuesday was weird: I was in charge of overseeing a thing that lasted nine hours and existed for the possibility of activity throughout eight of those nine hours (there was a break in the middle), yet the entirety of activity was ten minutes. I kid you not, I fell asleep one time.

I guess the most recent baseball news at this point is the Rays signing Chris Archer back for one year and $6.5 million. If there’s a bigger kick in the groin area to the Pirates, I’m not sure what it is. Just, mega-oof.

Also, have you seen the Pirates’ Depth Chart? They’ve at least got some interesting arms (not all of them), but the position player crew is about as ghastly as I’ve ever seen. I don’t know often teams receive 100-loss central estimates, but the Pirates probably have to be one.
