Here is today’s Bit of Optimism—in their last ten games, the Pirates have won one more game than the Yankees, They of the Huge Payroll. Food for thought.

There will be less eyes than usual on the Bucs due to the Steelers opening game, but the team’s been having some fun, and besides, I have Josh Allen on my fantasy team. The game thread is open, I’ll be holding court here and on Twitter, and, as always, LET’S GO BUCS!!
