Lots of interesting stuff today:
-P- Dejan Kovacevic grades the Bucs. They aren't so hot. One wonders if those much-deserved "F"s for Dave Littlefield and Jim Tracy is going to cause trouble next time Kovacevic wants to interview them.
-P- Speaking of Tracy:
"When I saw it, I thought a month to six weeks," Tracy said.
"I deeply regret that I was wrong about that," Tracy continued. "Hell, if Dave and I had our way, Craig would be injured all season. Let's just say that we've thought about positioning laundry carts all over the clubhouse and then stealing Craig's Pepsi, but we're scared of the legal bills."*
-P- I realize I'm linking the Post-Gazette a lot, but... wow:
Is that the same? You be the judge.
Of course it's the same! Jeez, that's just pathetic. Be sure to read the rest of Kovacevic's answer, which goes on to mention some strange new sort of message control going on in the Pirates' front office. It's bizarre.
-P- One out of town paper tells Orioles fans, "At least you're not the Pirates."
*Tracy never actually said this.
