Pirates 2021

Im not much of a baseball fan. Id rather watch just about any other sport on tv. Going to a game is alright, but at this point you go to see the star players on the other teams. Without owners willing to spend some $$ this team will continue to stink. I wouldn't be surprised if the pirates get relocated.

I know I rip on the Pirates a lot. My son and I used to make 2-3 trips a year to watch the Pirates at PNC Park. Neither of us care to go anymore. We want to see them win. For the money people spend on them, it’s not too much to ask. There is no effort to build a winner. Until the Pirates organization feels the pain of no revenue due to lack of interest, nothing is going to change.

Its just sad....I remember the pain of Sid Bream in the NLCS back in 92, And Jim Leyland crying because he knew it was over. Little did we know it was REALLY over. Like forever over. I just basically gave up even checking the score. Then we had to suffer through mediocrity for years till the McCutchen era was born. Then we got head faked into thinking they were actually going to try to win and be competitive. Would have rather skipped that part altogether because that just rubbed salt in old wounds....

Leyland definitely wore his emotions on his sleeve. He was one of my all time favorite managers/coaches in Pittsburgh sports since I have been following them.

PNC would be one hell of a venue to host a World Series. Hope it happens before it and Heinz starts to cave in and they have to build a multi-purpose stadium next door to Heinz where that 3 River Stadium place used to stand. ;)

I looked up the Pirates' results/schedule on ESPN the other day, and there were tickets available for a regular season game against the Cubs at PNC park for $4.

Sounds about right.

If you think the ridiculous play from a couple weeks ago was bad....I present


Yeah.

Touching first base might be the most fundamental thing in baseball.

I'll give Hayes a pass on it, though. He's going to be an amazing player.

It will be interesting to see if they can build a contending team around him for a few years like they did with Bonds and McCutchen.

As with Bonds and McCutchen, you know Hayes is going to be gone eventually.

A good start will be taking Rocker in the draft. I'm not sold on Leiter...watched him give up another bomb Saturday against East Carolina even though they won. The Bucs will probably pass on both lol.
