so i just read a rant on how bad the pirates were and i decided i would rant about how good the pirates are becoming.
they have an allstart in andrew mccutchen. garrett jones played his career in the minors, we gave him a shot, and he is not letting us down. neil walker looked like a failed first round pick but now look at the kid after a few weeks in the bigs. things look bright for him. jose tabata, pedro alvarez, tony sanchez, brad lincoln, rudy owens, bryan morris, dan moskos, jameson taillon, stetson allie, starling marte, and the list continues to grow. these are all prospects that will soon be giving us fans something to cheer about and i really cannot wait!
bay who? freddy who? jack wilson going to retire? ian snell quit again? mcclouth two sub par years? yeah lets root for those guys some more...not. even with them we still stunk, at least now we got a bunch of young guys with much higher potential.
oh yeah and NH is the man. 3 drafts, 3 success stories, well if he signs the guys from this year, big success stories. NH wasnt around for bullington and the horrible FA signings and horrible trades from DL and Bonifay era, so back off of how we dump are talent for nothing, because we dont! check out the past 2 years trades and you will see NH gets a great return for what hes got to work with.
latin america? yeah were down there now too. before, we wouldnt even go near that place, now were working the streets hard haha! and our minor league system as a whole has improved greatly over the past two years and is still looking up. im 19, and ive never seen a winning season from the buccos, but you know what, i dont mind, because im happy with what we have to look forward too. NH is the man and he has turned this sinking ship around faster than we give him credit for. it might not translate to wins on the field this year, but when they do start winning, i want this on record, all the fair weather fans out there better not even show up to a pirate game because quite honestly they dont deserve to be there if they cant stick with a team that now has a future.
im tired of the hate, im tired of hearing why we suck, please get out of bucs dugout if your not going to discuss the positives and bad talk the buccos, because frankly weve heard it all before and you sound like a moron when you stat irrelevant facts.
