It Just Isn’t Easy

I had a boss in high school when I worked at a law firm.  When things went wrong she said had two “go-to” lines:

  • The system has failed; and
  • It just isn’t easy.

Well, if you’re a Pirates fan right now, both could apply. 

RJ Anderson of FanGraphs checked out the Pirates rotation through the first weeks of the season.  Looking at these numbers lead me to believe that the Pirates might need to invest in a second or even a third bullpen catcher.

It seems like The Bullpen Gospels might be a winner.
