Steve's creative title does not necessarily refer to Three Rivers Stadium, merely Pittsburgh's famous waterways.

And, if you were really wondering, this marks the ninth season for the new park.

(Bill James used to define that as a loss when the game score was 50 or less, but B-R is defining it as a loss when throwing a quality start.)
