Kornheiser is quick to suggest a solution


I'm not a fan of Tony Kornheiser, because he's incapable of supporting any of his comments with fact, but I had to ask if you heard his comments a day after the Bucs lost 17-3 to the Brewers. TK said the he felt that MLB should intervene in Pittsburgh because a team like the Pirates will never be able to right it's own ship (in so many words).

When I first saw the Pirates on the PTI rundown, I thought I'd hear something negative about the Bucs, but I have to admit it seemed to me like this statement was too much. Comparing our team to the Clippers and Bungles, at first seemed a little harsh. But, I suppose it is warranted since they've lost a record 17-years in a row, and following 4 blowout losses to the Brewers, it's hard not to question where this team is headed. But, I think it's wrong to suggest that they can't right there own ship. In fact I think Nutting made some very important and positive steps toward doing so with the hirings of Frank Coonely and Neal Huntington. I am not sure if Russell is "the man" to take the Bucs to the World Series, but I think he'll do fine to make the team competitive.

Like a lot of passionate Pirate fans, I too have slowly been humbled by the impressive changes that have taken place throughout the Pirates organization, and think that turning to the MLB to fix things now, would only, in my estimation, set the team back another 5-7 years.
