Pirates Reds Preview: Show Marty Some Light Edition

Charlie Morton gets the start tonight against Marty and his Reds

We aren’t fans of assholes.  Well unless it’s us.   

The Reds are a formidable test for the Pirates this weekend.

This winter, the asshole Marty Brennaman came out.  Not that we should be surprised.  All of the motivation Clint Hurdle needs to turn around a young club that has dropped four of the past five games was provided this offseason. 

This weekend should be the time to make the Reds pay for their announcers big mouth.

I hope it doesn’t happen actually, PNC Park would be a much better locale for us to enjoy it. 

But we can’t say that’s how Clint Hurdle feels. 

Thanks for filling up the bulletin board.

Being irrational comes natural to Reds announcer Marty Brennaman

On the field this looks like a David and Golliath matchup.  The Reds put up big numbers on the scoreboard.  The Pirates, well, they haven’t lately. 

Bronson Arroyo has pitched well against the Bucs.  Charlie Morton, well, he hasn’t pitched real well against the Reds. 

So who do we like tonight?  The Pittsburgh Pirates who else.   The offense needs to comes to life against the sickly Bronson Arroyo. 

Arroyo (2-0, 2.08 ERA), has went 5-1 with a 1.73 ERA in the last six versus the Pirates.   He gave up one unearned run in his outing against the Diamondbacks last Saturday.

Morton (1-0, 2.08), has a 7.18ERA in his last five against the Reds.  

It has all the makeup of a blowout at Great American.

Thanks to Marty, it won’t be.


Here is all the background if you missed it… including the use of the word ‘queer’ in describing the Marshall President.   

“They’ve (Pirates) probably improved themselves, which means they’ll probably lose 97 games,” said Brennaman of the Pirates, who were 57-105 in 2010. “There’s no light at the end of the tunnel for that franchise. There really isn’t.


We are busy with work and off to see Bryce Harper, catch up with everyone tomorrow.

    Can I say “douchebag” in these comments? Because Marty Brennaman is a giant douchebag.

      We encourage the use of the word douchebag in the comments. If you must say “douchebag,” we agree that is an apt description of Marty Brennaman.

    Tom, Your Team SUCKS! You musta Deal with it. Of course your the genius that said the Reds have only won 4 more games than PITT(which is where this team plays….a pitt) in the last 4 seasons when you first reported on this. To bad your off by about 60 there junior. My team sucks, as witnessed by the fact you haven’t made the playoffs since ’93, or that you set the record for the most sub .500 seasons in a row(which is STILL continuing), or that ONCE AGAIN you are bringing up the rear of the division. Maybe you can shot for NOT finishing last by almost 20 games this year. But keep talking smack, because it’s funny as all get out having Pitt fans talk like they actually have a MLB team to cheer for & the team they’re running there mouths about are the defending division champs, and our in first place.

      I appreciate that you took the time to join, create a screen name that is absolutely hilarious (wow – where did you come up with that one? Genius!), and comment.

      Unfortunately, the mis-usages of to/too, your/you’re, there/they’re/their, The Random Capitalization of Words, misspellings of things like “shoot” (“shot”? Huh?) and unintelligible phrases (“…and our in the first place.” – huhwha? Do you mean “are in first place”?) make it clear that you’re another internet Troll. And you probably pee your pants, too. Neener, neener, neener.
