This just in: the offense is bad

And how do you know when the offense is bad? When PAUL MEYER writes an article that's critical of it. Yeah, that Paul Meyer. The Pirates have scored 18 runs in 6 games in May, winning only one of them. That's pretty much what happens when you score three runs a game, you lose a lot. You know what the scary part is? Adam LaRoche is hitting .316 in May. I know he's only slugging .328 on the month right now, but the point is that he's actually putting the ball in play and we still aren't scoring. And I don't think the runs are coming, either.
