Here are some notable "players" I couldn't stand from 2000-2009.
Chad Hermansen, Tike Redman, Kevin Young, Pokey Reese, Oliver Perez, Zach Duke, Bryan Morris, Daryle Ward, Ty Wiggington. I could literally name crap players all day.

I thought Pokey Reese was pretty good here during his short stay.

I always had such high hopes for Jacob Brumfield, but as usual, he failed.

Unless you count nearly killing Dave Clark.

I have an Oliver Perez bobblehead.

The head bobbles strangely because it's not affixed straight.

Remember when between at bats the players would do a painting or whatever on the screen? Redman's was the best.

I actually think Mike Zagurski is making a very good case, very quickly.

That fielder's interference call last night... It's a rundown - Don't over-officiate the game - let the players decide the outcome. It was just absurd for that guy to make that call in that situation. Pirates deserved to record that out and there was no need for umpire funny business

Derek Bell is good, I just wanted someone other than him.

Great call on Bobby Hill, I wanted to list him and completely spaced.

What was that website that asked you to name the opening day lineups for all those craptastic pirate teams?

Dejan's tweets about the Pirates have decreased in number since the first week of the season. Not sure why.

Nothing to complain about other than a 36% increase in ticket sales for the debut of a single player on a Tuesday night. The guy is insufferable.
