Isn't it a little early for national writers to be noticing the Pirates?

It's a good article. People don't have much patience when it comes to Pedro, or a lot of our prospects. It's important to point out that the Harpers and Trouts are VERY rare players. While our prospects haven't done what they did, nobody else's are, either.

Of course leave it to Nomar to spend 30 plus seconds to talk about the AL East while talking about the NL Central in the 1 minute 42 second video clip.

The article had some good information about weaknesses among four Pirates hitters, but the video? What the hell did that have to do with the Pirates? Was it designed to show us that No-mah thinks the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays and Orioles are going to compete for the NL Central crown?

I never watch the video for the reason you state, it's just what the ESPN guys have on file and it rarely fits with the article. Besides, I can read so much faster than they can talk, it takes too long.
