Yep... reversion to the mean. Which is pretty low, and pretty mean. Pirates drop 7th straight and the ship doesn't just sink, it cracks in half.

After returning from a trip to the Grand Cayman Islands, Chris is disappointed with the Pirates' 7 straight losses and their just over five hundred stats. He analyzes the game against Toronto, Reynolds' batting and the upcoming games against Colorado and Baltimore. The Pirates need to make a turnaround to stop the losses and get back on track.

uh… things are just going from bad to worse they're going from bad to worse Buccos report may seventh twenty twenty three uh… they managed a blistering one run on eight hits they had one error they lost again to Toronto in embarrassing fashion ten to one they are now twenty and fifteen this is their seventh straight loss the only redeeming thing about the seven straight losses is that they had seven straight wins and they're still over five hundred and you still get to hear my Buccos reports if you can consider that a redeeming quality you know i don't even want to look i didn't want to talk about the game last night i was in the charlotte Douglas international airport coming back from the Cayman islands which my wife because she's such a superstar was able to take us on this incredible trip and i watched the pirates lose the the bad thing about the the trip was that every night was a pirate's loss uh… you know i really had some hope for this team i really did and i know i know the naysayers out there everybody out there oh come on chris yeah there it's a reversion to the mean i couldn't say that last night i couldn't even get the word reversion out of my mouth in the airport i was so tired it was a layover in charlotte i was so tired but you know haze tonight two for four with a run santana one for three batted him in big deal big deal okay reynolds oh for five hundred million dollar man his bat starting to cool off but you gotta expect that okay you gotta expect that contrarious pitched five innings gave up five earned runs on nine hits with three walks and four strikeouts where is the command what is going on uh… you know the good part of the bullpen moretta and hernandez came in and shut him down for two innings so there was only five you know they were up five to one i mean you still have a chance but who is this guy dejon who is he i i i haven't done enough research on him first to admit uh… two innings pitched five runs on two home runs i mean where were we going with that i mean we got bednar is working yesterday i know there was no reason to bring him in uh… it is a miracle they are still in first place they're three and seven in their last ten thankfully the rest of this division is been playing pretty piss poor lately and uh… you know i gotta tell you uh… we did not pass the test okay we did not pass the test uh… the bats are absolutely silent uh… the uh… pitching the starting pitching especially uh… don't know what's going on there well we've had some defensive lapses uh… and because of this week can't be as aggressive on the base paths and uh… you know tampa bay and uh… toronto took it to us they took it to us so who's next who's next well you know dare i say colorado but i said this about toronto's pitching colorado comes into a town for town for three games set they're batting two fifty fours a team they have a four ninety three team e r a you know we we we beat the piss out of the last time we played him uh… i don't know you know could we turn it around sure because after that we play baltimore my favorite team well my favorite team growing up the owes who are on an upswing playing well
