He's making his money and he takes zero heat in this city. I doubt much will change. Remember: "WE WILL" not be as bad as the KC Royals.

That's what fans in our city have been dealing with the last thirteen years. It's pretty bad unless your a gullible idiot who feels this team has a shot at winning a World Series in the near future. Afterall, isn't that the point? It's pretty bad.

What exactly was the uproar over this? Keaton didn't say anything controversial...every person in every sports bar who knows ANYTHING about sports feels the same way.

I applaud him for bringing more attention to this. Who criticized him?

The local media for the most part (except Steigerwald). He's one of the few sports writers in this city that chooses not to sugarcoat Pirate baseball or ride that Pirate PR wagon. The fans soon followed the media's lead. People calling and writing into local sport tv and radio, the ppg..etc. etc.

Madden seems to be supporting him to. Are everyone (media, fans) mentally challenged when it comes to baseball?

This comes back to my point.

Hypothetically.............If the Steelers went thirteen losing seasons there would be riots in the streets of Pittsburgh. It's almost as if Pirate fans expect another under .500 season and they deal with it and take it like a gimp. I keep hearing, we love the ball park, it has such a beautiful view, the food is great, the beer selection is excellent. It's as if many forget that baseball is played in that brand new ball park and we are supposed to be winning!!! It's a joke. Bottomline, they take it and accept it.

That's why I won't attend another Pirate game. They won't get a penny from me. Ownership is pathetic and league in general is pathetic.

Yeah...I friggin HATE baseball right now...there is no disparity. The differences between the big money markets and the small clubs are drastic. I haven't been into baseball in over 15 years...

And if you are a Pirates apologist...shame on you for supporting mediocrity for so long. I can understand a few losing seasons here and there, but this is ridiculous.
