Funny post on Bucs Dugout:

Quote:
Edit: Somehow, a post I made on August 26, 2003 has been kicking around in the system and only got published today. Weird. Who can understand these computers?

He's the best player on this team! How could the Pirates let him go?! And for what? KDKA says it's for A Player To Be Named Later and some "prospect" named Jason Day or something. I don't know who this Jason Day thinks he is but I hate him already. And he comes from the Padres who suck and will probably finish in last place so how could anybody they trade away be any good? Yeah. Exactly.

Brian Giles has 85 RBI this year and it's only August 26th. Last year he had 105 RBI! I can't believe management could be so stupid as to let him go. I quit. I can't be a fan anymore of a team that would trade its best player for some unproven prospect. This is an insult to me and to Pirates fans everywhere. NOW IS THE TIME TO REVOLT AND BOYCOTT THE PIRATES. I'm burning my Kevin Young jersey as we speak. Ha ha!

P.S. When are the Penguins ever gonna win the cup again? Probably never. THEY SUCK TOO!

P.P.S. Does anybody know how to put out a burning baseball jersey? My apartment is filling up with smoke and it's hard to breathe.

That is great Wilton. I had been looking for an article like that since the McLouth trade. It goes to show you how little everyone really knows until it happens.

You know, I was about to give it all up back in 1987 when the Bucs traded an All Star catcher for 3 nobodies in what I kept hoping was a cruel April Fools Day joke.

You know, I am not ashamed to admit I cried! I loved Tony Pena. We were trading him for a guy who could not hold a steady position (van slyke)...a fat catcher who was obviously never going to make it (spanky), and a pitcher who was nothing but filler (I believe Dunne got rookie pitcher of the year) .

What a trade! If Dunne hadn't got injured, I think he would have pitched successfully for a long time. He had good stuff.

I was in the same boat Animal. Thank you Andy Van Slyke and Mike Lavalliere.

Van Slyke became my favorite player to have ever played for the Pirates. That was one hell of a trade.
