The 1992 PITTSBURGH PIRATES Starting-Rotation: A True Guilty Pleasure, Fo Sho!!!

For The 1992 Pittsburgh Pirates

…Their Starting-Rotation Eventually Consisted Of…

…SIX (6) Quality Starting-Pitchers.

The Funny Part…

…To ME, Anyway…

…Is They Were Truly Betrayed…

…By One Of The WEAKEST-Bullpens…

…For A FIRST- PLACE-Team.

BUT BUT BUT, My Peeps…

I Promise I’m Not Here To Belittle Their Relief-Corps.

I’m Here…

…In ALL Honesty AND Sincerity…

…To Shed Some Light On A Rotation…

…That TRULY Had…

…ALL THE POTENTIAL IN THE WORLD…

…To Simply GO FOR IT!!!

Sooo…

…Let Us Begin At The Top…

…With…

…THE PIRATES’ ACE-Of-ACES…

DOUG DRABEK

Doug Drabek went 15-11, with a 2.77ERA, 10CG & 4SHO in 1992!!!

Doug Drabek would Win 92 Games for Pittsburgh Overall, and was The 1990 NL-CY, going 22-6, with a 2.76ERA!!!

πŸ˜€

Shall I Continue?

Good.

I Was Hoping You’d Say That.

Next-Up…

RANDY TOMLIN

Randy Tomlin went 14-9, with a 3.41ERA in 1992, but only Pitched for 5 Seasons in The Majors!!!

πŸ™‚

I Know, I Know…

…I’m Not Even To The Fun Stuff, Yet.

Our 3rd Starter Of Mention, Is…

ZANE SMITH

Zane Smith was only 8-8 in His 22 Starts during The 1992 Campaign, but Finished with a 3.06ERA, 4CG & 3SHO!!!

πŸ˜€

The 4th Starter Was A Personal-Favorite…

…Of MY FATHER’s…

BOB “THE FOSSIL” WALK

Bob Walk (aka “The Fossil” as My Father ALWAYS Called Him) was 10-6, with a 3.20ERA in 1992, Notching 1CG & 2SV!!!

Bob Walk would Notch 82 Wins for Pittsburgh, before hanging it up following the 1993 Season… and YES, My Father DOES OWN THAT PIRATES CAP… and STILL Sports His ‘stache!!!

πŸ˜€

Coming-In At #5 On This Little List…

…Is A Name MOST Of Y’all…

…Who Grew-Up As BASEBALL FANS…

…In The 1980s & 1990s…

…Should EASILY Recall…

DANNY JACKSON

Danny Jackson was only brought to The Pirates for The 2nd-Half of The 1992 Season. He’d Go 4-4 in 15-Starts, with a 3.36ERA!!!

When I think about Danny Jackson, however, THIS is How I Prefer to Remember Him. He had His Best Season For KC in 1985, the Year The Royals WON The World Series, though His Personal-Best-Season came in 1988 while with The Cincy Reds!!!

And…

…Last, But TOTALLY Not LEAST…

…Is Someone Who Hasn’t Been Retired Very Long.

He Was THE PIRATES…

…ROOKIE Pitching PHENOM In 1992…

…And He’s Got A DAMN-FINE…

…KNUCKLE-BALL.

Sound Familiar???

He Should.

He’s None-Other-Than…

TIM WAKEFIELD

Tim Wakefield was a “Rookie Phenom” in Pittsburgh following His call-up to The Majors in 1992. He would make 13-Starts, going 8-1, with a 2.15ERA, and tossing 4CG & 1SHO!!!

Tim Wakefield Followed-Up His BRILLIANT 1992 Campaign with a HORRID 1993 Campaign. He Didn’t Pitch PERIOD in 1994, then landed in Boston in 1995 (and was named The Red Sox Pitcher Of The Year for 1995, going 16-8 with a 2.95ERA) and he remained in Boston thereafter. He Notched His 200th Overall-Victory in 2011!!!

Yeah…

…Well…

…What More Can I Say, My Peeps?!?

The 1992 PITTSBURGH PIRATES

…Were Honestly AND Truly

A Fine Team

With A Fine Rotation

…And…

…Were A TON-O-FUN To Watch.

Sadly…

…In The End…

…They’re Mainly Remembered As Being…

…The FINAL-GASP Of A Storied Franchise…

…That Hasn’t Had A Winning Season SINCE.

THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES

—(((Amended On October 3rd, 2013: Well, Okay, Until Now. Congrats To THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES For Snapping 20+Years Of Hard-Times For Themselves AND Their Fans! Of Course, You Know I’ll Be Rooting For The Cardinals, But If The Bucs Beat St. Louis, I’ll Be Rooting For Them To Go The Rest Of The Way. πŸ˜‰ teehehe)))—

“You Ever Try Picking-Up Your Teeth With Broken Fingers?” — Fergus (Stephen Rea) (“The Crying Game”)

THE CRYING GAME(1992) is One of My Personal-Film-Favorites, and a True Forgotten Classic!

Stephen Rea received a Best Actor Academy Award Nomination for The Character of “Fergus” in “THE CRYING GAME (which received SIX Academy Award Nominations, and WON for Best Screenplay).
