Re: 2009 Pittsburgh Pirates Season Thread
Let's be real for a minute. The Pirates did exactly what they needed to do. They cleaned house and got themselves a fresh start. Every time we've heard rebuilding before now, it's been a half-assed effort. This is an almost 100% roster turnover. The Bucs WEREN'T going to win with what they had, so they did what they NEEDED to do to try and win in the future.
It's an aggressive gamble that will make the FO look like geniuses if it pans out and will get them all fired if it fails.
