I'm relatively new around here; just stumbled upon the site a little more than a week ago. Since then, Bucs Dugout has basically become my homepage.
After dealing with incessantly angry and misinformed Pirates fans, often even attempting to have actual discussions with them, I began to assume such ignoramuses encompassed the extreme majority of Buccos followers. This site has proved my assumption to be just that: an assumption.
Charlie, I think you run the best Pirates blog/site on the internet (and that is saying something, as there are some pretty decent ones, i.e. buccofans.com). In contrast to many supposed "experts," including many of the other moderators on sbnation, you are well-informed, well-researched, and well-spoken.
To the knowldable posters (gorkysn'beans, Vlad, BurgherKing, McCutchenIsTheTruth, and many others whose names currently elude me, for example): your insights and opinions are much appreciated, even those with which I disagree. Also, a special shoutout to WTM: love the player profiles, love the general info.
In conclusion, I'm sure I sound like a complete tool, but I just wanted to say "thanks."
