When are the Pirates gonna go all out and put a serious contender together? Ya we might suck for a few years after. but not consistantly like we have since '92. Look at the Astros. Yes they are horrible now, but they went to aworld series not that long ago.

Did they win? No. Therefore they did not reach their goal and now they're the worst team in the MLB. There's a system in place and it's starting to work.

I'm tired of hearing about the small market crap. Just bad management and cheap ownership.

I would have been more inclined to agree 2 or 3 years ago... Then they went and locked up their superstar CF for 6 years and signed what looked to be the LF of the future to a very team friendly contract.

Regarding the deadline deals, I thought the following was interesting:

Travis Snider's hitting line in August: .292/.366/.389
Shin-Soo Choo's hitting line in August: .237/.311/.366

Hmm, I wonder if the Pirates would have been pilloried for trading for a sub-.700 OPSing Choo?
