I love any of my hometown teams. Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, Passion...all of them. Win or lose. I don't hate the Pirates. I just hate their loser ownership. This once-proud and prestigious baseball franchise has been run into the ground, and I'm tired of it.

Boycott???? I guess you haven't been to a Pirate game in a while. People have been boycotting the team for the last 10+ years.

You can blame mgmt all you want. But as long as there isn't a salary cap or a new owner that has an endless supply of $, things will never change. I don't doubt that this ownership group is making money and that they could spend more than they do, but unless they are able to spend three to four times the amount of the current payroll they will never be able to compete.

Do you really think McClatchey and his partners are sandbagging that much??

I can sit at home, have a ciggy and an iced tea (or beer), go to the can and watch them on the tube and I've saved myself $30.00. Nuck the Futtings.
One more reason Littlefield hasn't really been able to do his job. The Nuttings give him a low budget which I really feel is unfair to him. He's done a fantastic job with the farm, but with building the team at the Major League level has been dead meat for him.
