Default Re: Will we ever see success in the other Pittsburgh Teams?

the Pirates will have a good run this year to go .500.

The pens will be good again. as for the team moving, they are close to having arrangements for the slots to pay for the new arena.

I hope we can get a few runs for championships in the next few years.

I'm glad your positive about this ball team, personally I would not be shocked to see another below .500 season. It's says alot about our team when fans become content with barely making it over .500 every year. We still don't have a big bat on this team, unless you consider Bay up to that level (which I don't). This team still has questionable area's of concern. Could we get over .500 after what? 15 years, this season? Maybe, but that's not saying much for an organization who turned away many fans with their lies and broken promises.

McClatchy goes out, picks up Casey (a name) to get people in the seats so he can make his last few bucks with the All-Star game and then hopefully the fans and media will pressure this bum to get out of this city. Until he is gone, my positivity, emotion and money for the future of this ball team is non-existant.

When I lived in the 'Burgh, the Pirates were always a contending team. We had players like Drabek, Bonilla, Bonds & Van Slyke... oh and I can't forget Spanky!! I am still bitter about losing to the Braves in the championship by a run scored by none other than Sid F-ing Bream.

McClatchy is a total F-ING tool. The Pirates are the professional minor league team for the rest of the league. We make them good and then trade them away for more prospects that we turn into good ball players and the cycle begins again...

As for the Pens, I love them!! I hate the fact that I can't watch them. I could get the NHL package on DirectTV, but the wifey says only one, so the NFL Sunday Ticket it is. Mario does not owe the city anything (IMO). He saved the franchise once already. What pisses me off the most is the 'bandwagon' fans. Yea, I know it's tough to watch your team lose but a true fan would suck it up and go. I know I would still be going to games. I was in my glory in the early 90's when the Pens won the up in back to back seasons. I even skipped school to go to the point and celebrate... good times. I would be distrought if the Pens move. I truely hope the State steps up to the plate and helps with a new area. We need a state-of-the-art facility. Period.
