Does The Leadership of the Pittsburgh Pirates Understand What’s Going On ?

We heard players talking about it during the All-Star Break. Steve Blass talked about it during coverage of the Bucs loss to the Milwaukee Brewers last night. (He said he had a big bruise on his shoulder from this event.) The Pittsburgh Pirates Charities does great work, but really….really?

I like what the players mentioned off the record, “we just wanted to get it over with.”  If you think for one moment

It’s hard to fathom how Frank Coonelly, Neal Huntington, or maybe more so, Clint Hurdle let’s this happen.  What’s next for #PiratesCharities having A.J. Burnett ride to his next start?

Gentlemen,

Things.  Have.  Changed.

    I don’t see how this matters. They had the option to change the date. Even if they did not people do things at their job all the time that they don’t want to do. Just another non-issue blown way out of proportion that has nothing to do with anything. We are in a pennant race so we can’t show up to do a charity event, that we could have pushed back to a non travel day? I don’t get it.
