Inside Conditions…The check is on the way hopefully for young Pirates

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker (12) talks with starting pitcher Johnny Cueto on the mound in the fourth inning of the NL wild-card playoff baseball game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright) Last Tuesday evening before the Pirates beat the “bejeezus” out of the Cincy Reds to advance to the NLDS; I was sitting in the press box after the game had concluded trying to find the words to put down on paper that would make sense to all who dared pick up a New Pittsburgh Courier and read my thoughts. I was continuing to try to make sense of how the Pirates disposed of the Reds and as a result sent Cincy manager Dusty Baker to the unemployment line. However, I am reasonably certain that none of us will see Monsieur Baker in the express line at Giant Eagle swiping his EBT food stamp card.
