A video remembrance of the Pirates 20 years of futility

17 Comments

I really don’t mean to jump on Pirates fans here. They know better than anyone how long it’s been since they had a winning team, so they don’t need anyone to remind them.  But this video chronicling the 20 years since Francisco Cabrera drove in Sid Bream in the 1992 NLCS is … something.

And yes, I’d say so even if it didn’t begin with Francisco Cabrera driving in Sid Bream.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
