Seriously though, this sounds like some corporate team-building psycho-babble gone horribly awry. Like they picked imagery that they imagined young men would find empowering (the renegade individualist biker, the Osama Bin Laden killing Seal Team Six, etc.) and tried to create some stupid 'us against the world' environment in their minor leagues. What they got instead was those same minor leaguers looking at their organization and saying 'these guys are fricking lunatics'.
Yeah, you would think that by the time James Taillon engaging another player in combat got written into the plans this whole thing would get shot down, but they're the Pittsburgh Pirates for a reason I guess.
