Does anyone on here care about the Pirates?

I do. We all know the attitude toward the club but does anyone on here follow them daily? Check hot stove rumors?

Just curious if I was the only one.

Re: Does anyone on here care about the Pirates?

I enjoy the game of baseball but the way the league is set up and the Pirate ownership makes it impossible for me to be interested in the team. To follow a team, I need to have at least a glimmer of hope. With the Pirates, that is futile.

Re: Does anyone on here care about the Pirates?

the economics of baseball is terrible. I can't beleive there is not more of a push for caps and floors.

Look at St. Louis and Pujols. They are not going to be able to afford to keep him after this year. Tough to compete and retain FA's like that on a consistant basis if you are a small to mid-market team

Re: Does anyone on here care about the Pirates?

i am and always will be a pirate fan. am i happy.... NO!!! in my opinion the pirate problem is the result of major league baseball being all about the mighty dollar. the nfl anf nhl are doing things right. you dont have the cowboys in there every year because they have all the money. there needs to be a salary cap if the pirates are ever going to compete. JMHO

take a kid hunting and fishing it will keep them out of trouble

Re: Does anyone on here care about the Pirates?

I love the Pirates, always will. But their ownership stinks and the way MLB is set up they can't compete unless the Pirates had a very rich owner that was willing to put out the money to get great players. The coming season will most likely be their, I think, 19th losing season in a row. They do have some good young guys on the team and I'm really hoping they do well.
