If they win this year, it will be with Dave Littlefield's and Kevin Mclatchey's players; and I refuse to believe that will happen. IF the Pirates ever turn it around, it will most likely be with anew group of guys (hopefully the current regime).
I can't get over Nady and Nate, though.

That's a pretty silly argument. So the players are bad because Littlefield and McClatchy acquired them? Besides that, NH has already made some savvy move that have made the Pirates a better team, the acquisition of Yates to name the most obvious one. It's still early but Dumatrait looks to be a good addition and I think that Michaels will turn out to be a positive addition as well.



Further, many of those players were not acquired by Littlefield; rather, they came from Mickey White's drafts in Bonifay's later years.

I always thought Cam Bonifay would have done okay, but the prospect of a new ballpark opening pushed him into panic mode and led to acquisitions like Derek Bell.

Signings like Derek Bell weren't good and add on to that the huge contracts Giles, Kendall, Meares, Mike Benjamin, and Young got too!!!

Don't lump Giles in with that group. He was worth what he got paid, and he brought some nice talent when he was traded.

Odds are we will have another losing year, but I have not given up hope. It hinges on the starters. I think these position players and bullpen are good enough to break .500 this year.
