The Pirates Kinda Suck

The city of Pittsburgh has the Penguins and the Steelers. Typically playoff caliber teams. Then they have the Pirates. Seventeen straight losing season. Wow. When I was a kid they had Sid Bream, Bobby Bonilla, Barry Bonds, Andy Van Slyke, Doug Drabek, John Smiley, and were flying high. Since then, down the shitter. The Buccos play in beautiful PNC Park, which I finally visited this past season. That park deserves a better product on the field. A look at the Pirates current clubhouse composition and you will find a product far from quality, it's quite putrid.

Andrew McCutchen has star power. The rest of the team, not so much. The offense on paper appears to be one of the worst in recent memory. It's like they're a team full of middle infielders from the 70's. You'd think with all those high draft picks that they'd be able to put together a solid homegrown team in the mold of the Tampa Bay Rays, but not much hope is on the horizon aside from Pedro Alvarez and Jose Tabata. I'm a Philadelphia Phillies Phan phirst and phoremost, but being from Pennsylvania, I'd still like to see the Pirates be competitive.

*Bootlegger Sports takes a very non-politically correct look at the possible sites of the 2020 Olympics.

*MLB Trade Rumors is the place to go for any transaction or possibility of a transaction for Major League Baseball.

*We Should Be GMs has a collection of Phillies cartoons.

*NESW Sports previews the next round of playoff games in the NFL.

NOFX- The Decline

Have some faith.
I believe they are going to do much better next year.
The main problem of this team is an unwillingness to spend.
