This is why we LOVE our Pirates



Because they are mutts. Nothing is more lovable than the mutt. While other teams

frantically sign overrated players like Werth and Beltre to ridiculous long term deals,

we sign the mutts, the Josh Fields, the Overbays, the Olsens. It's beautiful really how

ticket prices remain the same and an average working guy like me can bring his

kids to a game and get great seats for $35. My daughter LOVES the Bucs. She

doesn't care if they win a World Series. She sits in her seat eating roasted almonds,

loyally rooting for her dads buccaroos, saying"aweeee" when they make a bad play.

And when they win it's euphoria! All these overpaid free agents with their preferred

lists of the teams they will only sign with turn my stomach and give one horrible

lesson to kids out there. Like in 1960 one day our Mutts shall rise again!
