Re: So the Pirates really suck
This Pirates season reminds me of a few Bob Boone teams that were in 1st place through June and faded away. Although I am very impressed with what Clint Hurdle has done with that club, they are still missing some pieces and their young players are still developing. I certainly wouldn't dismiss them.
It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
