Practicing patience: A question

This poll seeks to generate a "yes" or "no" answer to a complex question: Are you willing to wait seven or more years for the Pirates to build and field a contending team.

The poll question is a complex one because it includes and thus requires answers to more than a few additional questions. For instance:

  • Must the wait take that long before the organization fields a contender?
  • Can the Pirates acquire the kind of free agents needed to jumpstart the transition to fielding a contender at the Major League level?
  • Have the Pirates implemented the strategy best suited to reach the baseball goal of the organization: Fielding a championship contender?
  • Has the Front Office acquired (or inherited) the kind of players it will need to build a contender?

Although the poll takes the form of a complex question, the stated question is also a simple one:

Would you wait?
