I have been criticized for not supporting the Pirate management and ownership; however, I do support their latest move. The Pirates announced that they would be doing away with the mascot--the Pirate Parrot. This outdated and often bothersome mascot has, often, found its way right in front of me when something happens.

The organization, in a release, indicated that they are taking their approach of developing talent and acquiring young prospects to fill vital roles..including those in the marketing and promotions department. The Pirates are planning to use a promising hatchling that was discovered while they were building the new Latin America training facility. Bob Nutting, Pirates Owner, added, "Our efforts and dedication to establishing a strong organization has already paid off as evidenced by the addition of the new parrot. Our scouting system has proven that it is capable of finding talent that will enrich our club." Nutting continued, current President Frank Coonelly and GM Neal Huntington have "shown that they are focused and have not spared any expenses in bringing the highest level quality, young talent to this organization. The days of losing and not having an upper tiered mascot are behind us. We will have an upper tiered mascot."

When I am wrong, I am wrong. The actions taken by the Bucs this week have shown that they are committed to the future, no matter the cost, so long as the cost is not very high.


GOD BLESS THE PIRATES!

Lenny Bruce once defined satire as "pissing on velvet."

To mix metaphors, Jabram, you're dribbling on the toilet seat.

My philosophy on bad jokes: when attempts at humor fail, they can be classified as either mean-spirited or sad. I find that Jabram's latest attempt falls into the latter category.

So did the Pirates trade the Parrot to the Steelers for Steely McBeam?

Taking away the Pirate Parrot would be like adding the logo to the other side of the Steelers helmet. You just don't do it.

Can't cancel the mascot concept. It's too important to kids and not very interested spectators (read people who know nothing about baseball). In other words it's important part of the family concept and if they don't address that they will destroy the only fan base left.

They need to stay worried about player acqusition and development.

Does this mean that they are going to stick with the "Johnny-come-lately" Pirate mascot?
