Uncle Mike’s Friday BROWSing: The “We Should Have Let the Pirates Win” Edition

I’m pretty sure that this team will do whatever possible they can to make me miserable. When I want us to win, we lose. When I give up on the season and start rooting for the Pirates to win the whole thing, we get swept by the Brewers and then beat up on the Pirates. […]
