You have to love unexpected Monday afternoon baseball. This will be the Pirates’ final game on the road this season, and also, sadly, my last game thread until next year. It’s a good way to close out yet another year on the planet (my birthday’s tomorrow)—hanging out with the BD Commentariat discussing pizza, fantasy football, and occasionally baseball, with funny GIFs and memes along the way.

Let’s hope that the Bucs can continue dashing playoff hopes. In the meantime, here’s your game thread, of course I’ll be on Twitter and, for the last time on my 2021 watch, LET’S GO BUCS!!
