Please refer to my avatar.

If I had to name a guy who made this team what it is today, I would pass on Cutch, Walker, Jones, Cole, Locke, Marte, Gomez and Alvarez.

What ONE GUY made this a better ball team the second he got here?

Yes, we saw some collapses under his watch, but I think AJ has made this team what it is today. Not single handedly, but as a serious cog in the gears.

AJ Burnett is a born leader. So glad we got him out of the cesspool that is Yankee baseball, and into a position where he can thrive.

Also, hurry back AJ. I miss you.

AJ is so important to this team, to its attitude and to its belief in itself. He has changed the narrative about the Pirates. For heaven's sake, AJ stated he will retire at the end of the year, but if he returns, it will be as a Pittsburgh Pirate and nothing else.

Hey, Roy Oswalt, Edwin Jackson, Derrek Lee, and the rest of you dickbags ...

But I really believe this one at bat has played a huge role, for the Pirates, for Pedro, for this season:

Alvarez hits a 3-run double off Tony Cingrani to put the Buccos up 5-2.
