Quote:
"I don't mention this to very many people but I have three people, whose opinions I trust very much, evaluate the farm system of every team on an annual basis," said Selig, who did not name the three people. "They rate the Pirates as having one of the best farm systems in the game. That leads me to believe they are on the right track in Pittsburgh.

"I understand that fans there don't want to hear about the future because they've been losing for so long. The organization is making good strides, though, and I believe it is only a matter of time before they win."


Quote:
"I know Bob Nutting and his family are committed to making that franchise a winner again," Selig said. "I'm partial to Frank Coonelly because he worked for us at Major League Baseball (as general counsel) and he is a very bright and determined guy. That franchise is in good hands."

I think the Pirates are doing some things right but I am not going to take Selig's word for it. The Brewers were horrible while he ran the show and his mark on baseball history is he produced a tie all star game.

I think never having f@*ked is a big part of your problem, Ryann.

It all means squat until, or if, it results in wins vs. losses.

Bottom line.

You have ZERO chance at ever writing comedy.

Two simple reasons:

1) You aren't clever

2) It involves spelling and well....you know.
