At this point. I'll place my bets on the latter.

The Pirates are cursed. Has there ever been a draft pick that contributed for them? Honestly?

Nate McLouth, Paul Maholm, Matt Capps immediately come to mind. The jury is still out on Snell and Gorzelanny since both showed last season that they can be solid major league starters. Other than that...nope, at least for now. Andrew McCutchen looks like a pretty good player as does Neil Walker, but both are still a year away from the majors. I want to see what Alvarez does, and going by his college numbers he does have lots of talent, but he'd better be here by 2011 at the very latest, hitting 40+ HR a year over that short RF porch. Anything less than that, and he's a bust IMO. He raised my expectations that much after all of the crap he and his asshole agent put the team and fans through.
