What is going on?


Answer truthfully, who would have put money on this over/under?  Over/under of number of articles by Bob Smizik that would be agreed with by the majority of the people at Bucs Dugout in August of 2010

Now, I'm figuring that most of you would bet the under, with the feeling that even if he SOMEHOW manages to write something that we like, it would be a one time fluke and I would at least get my money back.    BEHOLD

 

Props to jlk9697 for pointing out this article first

Read this article, and the comments, and you will be wondering if someone took over for Smizik without his permission, sorta like what happened when J. Jonah Jameson was in the hospital and the Daily Bugle made a positive article regarding Spider Man to take from comics.  A like to jlk9697's post here gives a brief synopsis for the TL;DR crowd and those who refuse to visit Smizik on principle even when you agree with him.

If that wasn't enough, he had to write THIS ONE TOO

This article describes  Dave Littlefield's drafts.  Someone in the comments stated that we all know that DL was inept so why did he do it and SMIZIK SAID THIS

(This article has nothing to do with my feelings about Littlefield, who was a good guy and a terrible GM. It's point was to show how barren the Pirates system was when Huntington took over.

 

WOW

 

I'm sure some people probably would say, "what's the big deal, this is simple stuff", but it's SMIZIK, he is ripped on so much here when his articles disagree, I feel that he should at least be congratulated for his articles that agree with us.
