I have been a Pirate fan, baseball fan and have been watching the game 39 years (o.k. 34, if one were to assume I did not understand what was going on the first 5 years of my life). During that time I have seen many re-structuring strategies such as develop better scouting programs, sign free agents and bring in strong management and coaches.

Today, I realized that all of the organizations that tried the above-referenced methods had done it wrong. The Pirates, on the other hand, have figured things out...NEW UNIFORMS. Well, not so much new, but re-stylized uniforms worn by those teams that were successful.

We no longer have to worry about Brandon Moss having limited skills and abilities, all we need is to have him wear the same design of uniform as that worn by Dave Parker. The LaRoche brothers no longer will make our hearts sad and drive our hope into the ground, they have new duds to wear. Gone are the days of first half slumps and bad swings and strikeouts. Returning will be the days of monstrous homeruns and batting titles, like those given to us by Willie Stargel (genuflection) and Bill Madlock. I wonder Adam will hand out gold stars or fleur de leis. I guess it doesn't matter because winning will be enough.

Thank goodness they took this major step at this time. I was beginning to think that they were not concerned about winning, but this proves me wrong. The only question I have now is do you think they are waiting to bring back the pill box hats until next year so the other teams have some chance against them in 2009. That's what I think. Boy, that Mr. Nutting is a classy guy for being so concerned with the other teams and not wanting to give the Pirates too much of an advantage this year. I think he should get the first gold star or fleur de lei from Adam. That's what I think.

It's also time to implode PNC Park and bring back Three Rivers or Forbes Field.

I think Mr. Jabram does not understand the mechanics of building a team as much as he thinks he does. Otherwise he'd recognize the progress that the Pirates' minor league system has undergone since the end of 2007. That's what I think.

That's what I claim.

I for one appreciate the effort Jabram, but as you may be just finding out now, the rest of these stiffs here are void of any senses of humors when it comes to the pirates, but welcome to the rose colored forum anyway.

Our senses of humor come out when we actually read something funny. Jabram's post needs work if he wants a laugh.

Just ban me while you're at it, guys. This board blows. Two many jerks here. I'll miss The Shark and a lot of you guys but there's too much negativity here. Many of you are fans of the team that's gonna win the Super Bowl. Why are you so bitter? I'm a Lions-Pirates fan. I should be hacked off.

Ollie? What's wrong man? Sure there are negative guys here but don't leave on the count of them. We just need to get to spring training so we can start to discuss real baseball, not speculation.

Dan ... it is good that I know you and know that you are an intelligent, thoughtful contributor.

Otherwise, one could certainly read this the wrong way.

The new jerseys are awesome. I've been hoping that we would get rid of those sleeveless jerseys for a while now. It's not 1960 anymore. This organization needs to get with the times and this isn't a bad start.
