2008 Pirates. Greatest Pirates Team Since 1992?

2
The Best Management Team in Baseball is now at its fifth MLB Winter Meetings. In that span, the Pirates have not improved. The team inherited was on pace to go 76-86 before general manager Neal Huntington began trading away regulars. There are indications the minor-league system is better, but not yet close to helping the parent club. Some people call this progress. It's actually grounds for firing. Yeah! How dare Neal break up that powerhouse 2008 team? I mean they were in 1st place on April 3rd and were over .500 as late as April 14th! Unlike that god awful 2011 team that "Failing" Neal put together that was in 1st place on July 25th, was 7 games over .500 on July 19th and was still on pace to go 83-79 on July 31st. Blogging Bob, good for a laugh when you're up at 3:45 in the morning and can't sleep.
