John MitchellYet, no playoffs. Seriously, I could assemble a better team. I think the time has come for a reality show where the Pirates bring in actual fans to run the team. We couldn't do much worse than the current front office.

Jim WolfOkay, I get it that on the Pirate FB page they need to write something positive, and it is an interesting stat. But its hard to celebrate when your team finishes barely out of the division cellar . As a fan its very frustrating to see them do so well just a couple of years ago (97 wins) and then slide backwards. And I truly believe they would have won it all that year had they just got past the Cubs in the one game wild card. I'll always be a fan but I'm not expecting much from the ownership, and I'll be happy to be proven wrong!

Gary StearYeah, we know the pitching is pretty good, but to win baseball games, you also have to hit the ball, and you have maybe 2 guys who can do that. (maybe just 1)

Ray LisowskiI must say that I have faithfully been following the bucs for years. Like 55 years. This has to be the most disappointing year so far. No timely hitting and pitching, and base running.No steady lineup, no consistency. Bad trades for washed up pitchers. As being a true fan I honestly think they should take a long look at all the bench coaches. Its time to start over with them.

Don ElliottYet, if our pitchers so good, then why not in he playoffs? The relievers stunk period. The starters would have the game going well and we would be ahead. Then, Clint Hurdle and his rule of 6 innings came into play. The relievers would somehow lose the game, many times. That is what the owner and coaches should look at. They never held the game for the starter. TERRIBLE coach.

Craig KoehlerGood thing because when you only score 1 you usually lose. Bring in some bats and decent relief in addition to Rivera. Bring Mark Melanson back. He needs Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh could use him.

Matt KastnerAnd... so what? The team still underachieved and finished with a 75-87 record this season. I get it. You need to spin the failure of this season in a positive light in order to try and give the fans hope for next season. But while individual stats are great, they don’t mean jack if the TEAM doesn’t get results.

You’ve literally given 40 years of fans nothing but misery to embezzle money away from the team into the owners pockets. How much is your team going to be worth when no one cares about it?

Jack BartanusI was born in 1961 and was able to enjoy both World Series wins. The teams of the 1970’s were awesome teams. The Reds beat us in the playoffs a couple of times or we might have won a couple more World Series Championships. Those teams could sure hit. They were known as the “Lumber Company”. That’s when players stayed with teams unless they were traded. Baseball was not a game back then it was a way of life. Going to those games with my Dad was the best. Great memories!

Myrna MulvihillWhen we were in Puerto Rico we had a cab driver take as around and when we said we're from Pittsburgh he got so excited and started talking about Roberto and then took us to see the path where his plane went down. They love their Roberto just as we do so this is for you good buddy from your Pirates and the city of Pgh.

Rod ZollingerGreat way to end your tenure with the Pirates! Go play for a winner, you deserve that. Nutting will never pick up his 14 million dollar option, and his buy out is only 1 million. You do the math. He should have been traded at the dead line. He walks away with a buy out, and the Pirates will get noting in return for a good asset. Typical. Nutting's wallet wins again. 💩

Ed HenciakLet Cutch move on, hook up with a winning team, and get paid what he's worth. You ingrates already humiliated him last offseason. There is no way Nutting is going to spend enough to get the Pirates to the 90 win mark next season. Just let the guy move on. Whatever prospects you'll get for him won't amount to much anyway and it's costing Andrew lots of financial flexibility on his end to remain with this deadbeat, degenerate organization.

Mike ZentichkoThe salary that Cutch will be taking in next year is so far beyond anything the Pirates could pay him I doubt they will even make him an offer. Did the same thing for Bonds. We'll miss his bat and his range in centerfield, but let's be honest his arm was mediocre at best.

Kevin AndrewPirates have always been my favorite of the Pgh sports teams, then after they lost to the Cubs in '15 wild card, something snapped and I just don't much care anymore. It makes me sad; but I've turned more attention to two of the best run orgs in sports - Steelers & Pens. I'll never love em as much as I once loved the Pirates; but at least I know they won't break my heart every year. And the Steelers & Pens owners want to win. They are committed to winning. And that's a lot more entertaining than excuses about market size and payroll flexibility and bridge years

Ken ChambersNot sure "Fun" is the right word to describe the whole season, but there were many moments like those above that were genuine highs. In particular, to be there in PNC Park when Serpico hit that walk-off homer stands out. And to round off a disappointing season with back-to-back wins at the Nats was great.

John Matthew MattieBucco Nation? Do you know what "Bucco Nation" really thinks? This isn't fun. This is garbage. I love these players, I could care less about this "team." I was a fan through many awful seasons and spent a lot of money in PNC Park. I was a fan through three great seasons and spent even more money. Where did that money go? We went from attending 30+ games a year to seeing only 2 in the last two seasons. People like me and my wife and friends: we did our jobs. What did the Pirates organization do? There's nothing fun about this. I'll drive two hours and give my money to the Cleveland Indians.

I see all the negative things being said but I am optimistic this team will get better and hopefully Kong is able to come back next year. Go Bucs!
