At least the Pirates twitter account has a sense of humor.

That's pretty funny.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

I wonder when the Yankees will start to take heat for their name since it was a derogatory term intentionally created to refer to a certain group of people in a negative way. It still can be used as an insult to Americans and/or specifically northerners today. But I’m guessing since they are one of the most “historic” franchises in all sports, there’s no way people will raise a stink about them. But also a lot of people don’t see how a “non-minority” could possibly be offended by anything. So I’m guessing there won’t be much of an issue for the Yankees franchise, but they should take just as much heat as any franchise since the word “yankee” always has been a derogatory term.

If we’re at the point in this MLB Playoffs thread where we’re apparently comparing the word Yankee with the name of the Washington NFL franchise and think that’s a valid comparison, it might be time to shut the site down, never mind this thread.

If that wasn’t clear enough, let’s bring the discussion back to baseball and the postseason games. Any further posts on what is or isn’t racist or derogatory equals a one month insta-ban.

Cards go from putting up a 1st inning 10 spot one game to no hitter watched the next game.

Anyone who says there are actual playoff trends worth counting on is a fool.

There was some chatter about the playoffs being tough to watch this year...I think they have mostly bee awesome, unpredictable, and extremely entertaining. The reasons why baseball is king no matter how much football and basketball enthusiasts want to slight America's true pasttime

Do you think Cardinal fans are second guessing whether they left Wainwright in one hitter too long with Miller up and ready in the bullpen?
