The Battlin's Bucs finally got some national media notice today on ESPN's The Sports Reporters

Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe dedicated his "parting shot" to the Pirates.

The major points:

"There once were warriors, there once were Pirates."

He recalled the Lumber Company and talked of Clemente, Robertson, Zisk and Sanguillen.

Two world series in the seventies and three straight division wins in the 90's

(they showed a video clip of a certain play in October 92 that forced me to look away for a second)

He mentioned their stupid drafts, bad signings, small market blues and stinginess with the pocket book.

He gave props to PNC Park as the best park in baseball.

He mentioned the sixteen years of losing.

He mentioned our young rising stars like Doumit and McClouth, and our young pitching and their four shutouts.

He is adopting us this year.

BTW Progamming note: Sports REporters re airs at 12:30 EDT today on ESPN 2

Check it out!

They were getting quite a bit of coverage on ESPN during the Marlins sweep, particularly the Ohlendrof game. There was a thread for it, but the main story on Baseball Tonight was that game as well.
