If you remember the Andy Haines era in Milwaukee, and most of you do, you'll remember Brewers offenses that struggled to score runs, looked lost at times, and a whole lot of frustration. The Brewers parted ways with Haines after the 2021 season.

Haines latched on as the hitting coach for the NL Central rival Pittsburgh Pirates after that. He's still the hitting coach for Pittsburgh as they come into town to start a three game set against the Crew.

Calling into sports radio shows is one of the great ways for fans to display their passion and sometimes voice their displeasure. Back on Milwaukee sports radio back in 2019-2021, there were a lot of complaints about Andy Haines as the Brewers hitting coach. Fans could relate to the frustration.

Now Pittsburgh sports radio is going through the same thing. After the Pirates loss on Sunday, the postgame show on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh had an all time rant about Andy Haines that all Brewers fans can relate to.

Pirates fans have been long suffering. Though they're a division rival and coming into town for a three game series here, you feel for this Pirates fan and all of the Pirates fans he speaks for. Brewers fans have been there, especially with Andy Haines.

The Pirates are bottom 10 in the league in exit velocity, hits, OBP, and stolen bases. They're bottom 5 in home runs, batting average, OPS, RBIs, runs, and slugging percentage. They are an objectively bad offense despite having some top prospects and big names in their lineup. Ke'Bryan Hayes, Bryan Reynolds, and Oneil Cruz are some good players that just aren't living up to expectations. Henry Davis, a number one overall pick, has struggled.

Meanwhile, the Brewers offense is thriving under the stewardship of Ozzie Timmons and Connor Dawson. The Brewers are 3rd in the league in OPS, 6th in batting average, 6th in homers, 3rd in stolen bases, 4th in OBP, and 4th in slugging. William Contreras and Christian Yelich are thriving, Brice Turang has taken a quantum leap, and Willy Adames is having his best year since 2021.

This Pirates fan who called into the sports radio show not only speaks for Pirates fans having to watch yet another Andy Haines led offense, but also Brewers fans who had to witness the same thing. Fans in Milwaukee can relate but also breathe a sigh of relief that the Haines era is in the past.
