Obviously, articles that appear on the Pirates' official website are there to serve the team, no matter how not-approved-by-Major-League-Baseball-or-its-clubs they are. But this piece is one of the more hilariously absurd pieces of spin I've ever seen, even on the Pirates' website. Basically, the author argues that since the Astros stunk almost as badly as the '06 Pirates at this point last year, the Pirates have a chance at winning the pennant. Sure, just spot 'em Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Roy Oswalt and they might have an outside shot! No problem!
