ant to see real trolling check out the idiot Reds fans or idiot Cards fans who troll each city's newspaper forums. This was just in fun, imo.
I think the Pirates are for real this year. Not to mention, McCutcheon hasn't really gotten it going yet.

I haven't paid much attention to the Pirates this year until watching them this past weekend. It is hard to believe they haven't had a winning season since "Sid slid" 1992 and I don't think that will change this season. I don't see their pitching holding up over the 162 game season and am not crazy about the lineup. Good club but they need a couple more studs to get over the top.
Pirates have great pitching staff and bullpen, but I don't know if they have enough offense again. I say next year is the year you contend. But who knows.
