Jim Tracy should NEVER have been hired to manage this team. And what the hell did Jeff Manto ever do to deserve to be a hitting coach? He was a .230 hitter for his career, for God's sake! And don't even get me started on the joke that is Jim Colborn. It's a friggin miracle that the man has managed to get Snell and Gorzelanny to be successful. He's totally ruined Zach Duke and Paul Maholm, to the point that I don't see either one turning things around any time soon. The ONLY reason these jokers have jobs is because management was too damn cheap to find people worth a damn. Bob Nutting says he wants to win? Bull-f'ing-shit!

It's really a shame what's happened to this once proud franchise.
You're right. There is basically no excuse for the Pirates to suck for this long. The Small-Market excuse doesn't work anymore. Look at the Twins, Athletics, Tigers, hell even the Brewers are starting to get it together. The Bucs owners are just too cheap and stupid. What is even more funny is that I hear the "Rooneys are cheap" line all the time on Steelers sites.

I was 3 the last time the Pirates had a winning season in 1992. THREE YEARS OLD! So I was basically too young to comphrehend baseball. What is even more sad is the sheer fact that there are young Bucs fans born 1992-Afterwards that have yet to see winning baseball in Pittsburgh. It's all so disappointing.

I feel sad imagining whenever I look inside that beautiful stadium...a playoff atmosphere one day. The place is packed and rocking, Millions of Pittsburgh fans cheering the Bucs, Thundersticks, banners, chants, you name it. Instead, we're opting for boycotts and sites like Irate fans are being created.

The best way to show Pirates management that you don't approve of the way they've handled this team is to hit them in the wallet and NOT GO TO THE GAMES!!! Yes - PNC Park is absolutely beautiful and no matter how bad the team is, the atmosphere there is outstanding, but I can watch them lose and blow leads just as well at home and I can smoke, have a beer (or 2) and go to the can whenever I feel like it.

I don't think I'm so much angry with the team as I am with the coaching staff and management. I'll continue to support them as they are my team, but as far as giving them one dime - forget it.

according to a Q&A with Dejan on the PG website, there is going to be a protest outside the ballpark during the June 30th game against the Nationals at PNC Park. That's a start. I guess we're learning from Baltimore's mass exodus during a game last year. It got the ownership to make some sort of upgrades.
