The Buccos killed a team

This is not a fake news story from, WPXI.

This is not the Onion.

These are not made-up words like “flossbobbin” or “hedgemony” or “lederhosen.”

This is real life:

The Pirates beat the Minnesota Twins 17-6 via a TEN-RUN FIRST INNING.

Words are not sufficient. We shall speak in Psych gifs.

I’d do the Dance of Joy if I wasn’t already wiped out from doing it for the weather forecast.

    That third one looks like they are doing the Peanuts dance.

    The shock is too great for the team. Andrew McCutchen has started channeling Yogi Berra: “People start hitting, then people start hitting.”

    See I’m not happy about it. I think they are using up their runs too soon (heck, even before the real season starts). They are going to need those runs for later. I’m only half kidding.

    A little perspective: Most of that first inning came against a guy who has been in the minors long enough to be a Rule 5 pick (don’t ask, it just means he’s been in the minors a long time) and has yet to reach the AAA level. Why the Twins were starting him against a major-league lineup, or even the Pirates, is anybody’s guess. He pitched about as well as you’d expect.

    Still, if you squint, you can see a team that looks like it might not finish last in the league in runs.
