Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman aren't stars in the Pittsburgh Pirates seven game losing streak.

The Seven Deadly Sins of the 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates

Gluttony:  How much winning could we take?  Wanting the Pittsburgh Pirates season to go exactly our way is sinful. There is a certain discomfort with being a baseball fan, but the Pirates glutton will have none of it and explodes in anger.


Greed:   The greed of power has crept into the team.  Trying to win by using someone other than the best player for the highest leverage situation is greed.  The thirst for .500 was never enough for fans after the All-Star break.  USA Today headlines went to our heads.  The NL Central crown became the goal rather than just winning tonight’s game.

Sloth:   Often disguised as keeping a level head, it means not making it a priority to do what should have been done. Like adding the two arms that were discussed before the deadline perhaps?  The mere idea of adding pitching was scoffed at by many perceived intelligent men and women.  Sloth became reality causing people to not take the time to defend the idea of adding pitching at the deadline.

Pride:   Pittsburgh was very proud of this Pirates team seven games ago.  An overwhelming feeling of pride and arrogance leads to tragedy in life. Perhaps it can be deemed sinful that many of those same believers now mock this very same team.


Hurdled: After a while lust  being Hurdled becomes a habit and the tremendous pleasure it brought diminishes until we wonder what the attraction was.


Envy:  Envy is perverted because it “loves” what other people  teams possess, rather than what is Good McCutchen,  Beautiful Sold Out PNC Park, and True  Walker, Hanrahan, and Pedro rule.


Wrath:  The baseball gods are mother fuckers.
