Wow! Two post-season appearances in a row. I have to say, it’s a proud day for this organization. Our entire staff has worked tirelessly to put a great product on the field. With the win over the Atlanta Braves, a longtime thorn in the side of this organization, we advance to October baseball.
And you know what? You all are so welcome.
I’ve had to deal with every single moron calling in to Bob Pompeani’s radio show saying that I didn’t know what I was doing. Remember when all you idiots said, “Josh Harrison should never be in a Major League lineup.” Well he’s about to win the batting title. Shows how much you know.
And you know what you can all do now? You can all suck it.
“You did nothing at the trade deadline, Neal. You picked us up absolutely no help.” Oh, really? You like John Holzcomb? He literally was almost out of the league and now he’s a beast. I did that. You all laughed at me when I signed Edinson Volquez. Well the sumbitch has 12 wins this year. I did that too. You like where we’re at right now? A few more games and we might even win the division. The Pirates winning the division. I want that to sink in for a moment. I want you to re-read that sentence, that is if you can read. The Pirates, a team that went 10-18 in May this year, are in the playoffs and actually might win the freaking division.
So you know what? You know what? Why don’t you all scale the Roberto Clemente bridge, take a nice scenic look over PNC Park and imagine the possibility that it might be filled come October and take a header.
