I'm a huge Pirates fan and have attended a lot of games this season. I love this team and feel that there is some real talent there. McClatchey doesn't care about the team - the Pirates are simply an investment to him so he can line his pockets. I was not happy when the Bucs hired Tracy and I'm even unhappier now, as I think both he and Colburn are big contributors to the problems with this team. The Bucs have some good young pitching talent but it is not being developed properly and Tracy is so quick to give a pitcher the hook after 100 pitches even if he is pitching well, yet he leaves a pitcher in who is being taken to the cleaners. He simply has no fire in his eyes which leads one to the impression that he doesn't give a damn if they win or lose. Tracy and Colburn both need to go, imho, and McClatchey needs to find another money making scheme and sell the team to somone who does give a damn like the Galbreaths did many moons ago.

That at least show some steps in the right direction.
I hear ya brother and I don't see things changing for a long time. Year after year, same old story. Once a year we hear the same old song and dance before the season starts and the end results are always the same. It's a shame.

Its a shame all that talent perez had is gone. He will be the one to go down when Santos comes back. I like perez but lets face it hes one of the worst pitchers in the league.

At this point, I'm questioning every aspect of this team. In my opinion, the lack of the will to win and the acceptance of losing is evident with this team. Starting with the mute we have for a manager to the player interviews after blowing nine straight. There is zero emotion on this team. They are used to losing and it's becoming an acceptance. That filters on down starting with ownership.

As for your comment on progress. Brother, we have been hearing that they are making progress for the last fourteen years. Some still enjoy drinking that kool-aid and others realize that it's a complete joke and that this organization will say anything in order to get you in that ball park.

I don't see it getting much better. Littlefield is a joke who get's an extension after every horrible season and McClatchy is a snake who has no idea how to own a ball team. Unfortunately we are stuck with these two jackasses until McClatchy decides to take his ass back to California with his pockets stuffed. I'm happy to know that he does not have a cent of mine in his pockets from this season and it will stay that way until changes are made on and off the field.
