Sorry this isn't a diary featuring insightful observations backed up by rigorous statistical analysis. I just want the Pirates community to recognize the birthday of one of the greats of the team and of all baseball (and my all-time hero).
I miss you so much Roberto, and especially today, which would have been your seventy first birthday.
I posted a poll on who your favorite Pirate of all time is. I didn't have enough spots to list everybody who came to mind, though, so if your favorite Bucco is Barry Bonds (or someone more worthy), write him in as a comment to this diary.
