Seriously, finally a GM that knows how to get things done. I was so sick of hearing about "Major League Ready" talent.

Whoa , hold on there cowboy.....the only thing done has been the tear down. The build up is yet to be proven

Nutting made false or foolish claims to the players that were here when he became official owner. He said he thought they could win 2 years ago.

True, but this process has not been done in the past 17 years. Getting through this season will be brutal but Spring Training will certainly have a different and fresh feel next season. I'm not saying the Pirates will be world-beaters but with the pitching staff continuing to improve the Pirates could be inching towards something fun.

I'm very glad that Burgh is finally using their WHOLE ass on a rebuilding project.

And I mean that as a compliment.Now if we can just unload Grabow and Capps...
