Very optimistic indeed.
As for the Standard is the Standard, in relation to Next Man Up, is is total BS. There is a reason that starters are starters and play most of the snaps. It's because they are better players.The next man up is not going to be as good, or they would be sharing snaps equally to spread the workload.
As for the Pirates, it is about a reasonable to think they will return to greatness as it is for 8 track tapes to come back to the fore as the recording media of choice.
