"Fan Hit During Game" joke
A fan was hit in the head by a broken bat during a matchup between the Pirates and the Brewers. He suffered far less trauma than those who actually had to watch the entire game.
Pirates chairman Bob Nutting recently told reporters that an MLB salary cap would make Pittsburgh more competitive. Provided that salary cap is half a million dollars.
Anybody who watches baseball knows that the Pittsburgh Pirates trade away all of their good players every year. Ok, having said that, here's the joke.
Did you hear the news? The Pirates traded away their mascot for a couple of minor league mascots!
Pittsburgh rookie Andrew McCutchen hit three homeruns in a recent game. If the Pirates knew how good he really was, they'd have already traded him.
The Pirates are interested in trading All-Star second baseman Freddy Sanchez to the Giants for left-handed starter Jonathan Sanchez. The trade is particularly appealing to Pittsburgh since they can save money by not printing new jerseys.
