Bowden cites the Pirates pitching staff as the source of problems in 2011.

Fox Sports Jim Bowden Previews 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates

What does 2011 hold for the Pittsburgh Pirates?

The Pittsburgh Pirates ”probably will lose 100 games,” said Jim Bowden in the video below. We aren’t sure you will learn much from what Bowden says, but nevertheless it inspires me to post these previews. We trust you enjoy them.

Jim Bowden really goes out on a limb with the word probably in his 2011 preview of the Pittsburgh Pirates.  He calls out Andrew McCutchen for a possible Gold Glove and likes the Fab Four of Cutch, Pedro, Tabata and Walker.

The downfall for the Bucs will be pitching.  He mentions outside of Paul Maholm and Ross Ohlendorf the weakness of the team will be pitching.   

“Until the pitching is fixed, the Pirates will continue to be a losing organization.”  Jim Bowden, Fox Sports

    well, he IS right, isnt he? it is up to the pitching… doh-eeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

    my problem with his “preview” is that he pretty much is repeating what all the other ex-purtz have spewed.

    if yer gonna diss the pirates, at least find something new to chime in on, Bowden.

    Jim “Captain Obvious” Bowden throws caution to the wind and identifies pitching as a Pirates 2011 weakness………. BRILLIANT!
