Pirate Fans Need To Stop Whining


     Here we are on Oct 25th and lots of posters here keep complaining the Pirates are punting away next season already. First of all, you all have the right to complain. I don't have to read it but I do anyway because I'm just amazed at how you're arriving at this. Lots of people are bitchin bout Maholm leaving. The truth is he pitched better than his lifetime numbers last year. He also got hurt. Truth is who can really predict what he will do next year? It's a gamble of 10 million. Are you paying his salary? Are Pirates tickets cheap compared to most teams? If they raised ticket prices alot would people still come?

     At the trade deadline did the Front Office punt? No they went out and signed Lee and Ludwick. Then they faded really fast. If the Bucs didn't sign anyone at the deadline, but instead they traded away Maholm or Hanrahan for some good draft picks, most people would be bitchin how they threw in the towel! They let a golden chance slip away because they just wanted to dump salary. They punted away the season!

     Just please give it a rest. They are doing the right things. They are outspending nearly every team on the draft. The Bucs farm system is flourishing. It is extremely young. Just give it time. What good comes of all this? Save all the whining for next seasons gamethreads.
