Who controls (owns) the Pirates currently? Can it still be McClatchey? They run newspapers, one of the biggest money-losing businesses in this country. How can they still be owners? If they are, does this explain the complete lack of ability to build a winner? If they're not, who runs the team? Who are the deep pockets? Are the Pirates a target for purchase by someone else (a foreign investor, possibly from India)? Why is there an interest in these minor leaguers from India? Do they think that their 'mad cricket skilz' somehow translate to MLB? Put 'em in the box against Hamels or Santana, or put 'em on the mound with Utley, Pujols, or Manny in the box.

I'm certain that Buc fans have to be sick and tired (like most of the rest of MLB) for becoming a farm system for the Yankees, Red Sox, and Mets. For that, we can thank the former used-car salesman with the bad hair now calling the shots at MLB HQ.

Any input from anyone in the know is welcome.
