    Buccos!!!!!

    How bout my pirates? They are playing pretty well this year. Could the losing streak end? I know I spew my other sports teams a decent amount in here, but this is worth mentioning. Maybe bucs and yanks in the series this year. Would be nice to see.

    Cutch, marte, Martin. On paper, they are the best we have had in years.

    As a matter of fact I do. Positive thinking. After 20 years I'm surprised I can still be positive lol.

    Pirates are my team too. I started a thread on here two yrs ago wen the Pirates started off good but they faded after allstar gm.. Pirates are for real this yr and beyond with their farm talent coming up.. Guys like Taillon, Allie, Cole, Polanco, Henson, Bell, ect should take the buccos where they want to go.

    for the last 20 years the Pirates sell off their talent as soon as those players can cash in. In return they get minor league talent that does not always become major league talent.

    Why do you think they will change this behavior?

    Andrew mccutcheon. They signed him past his arbitration years. It's a small step, but it's progress.

    I think cole will provide a huge spark this year. Probably around June or July from what I have been hearing.

    The entire "sport" should be contracted and discussed with other sports of equal.levels of excitement such as curling and synchronized diving.

    Not to even mention the non competitiveness of having teams with 230 million payrolls playing teams with 23 million payrolls.

    More like Harlem Globies vs Washington Generals or the WWE than a serious sport

    Posts like this make a valid argument for contracting you.
