This is actually a very tricky time to blog about the Pirates, because the team's new management group has been on the job for the better part of a year, and we're still trying to figure out what they're up to, because they haven't made a ton of big moves (the drafting of Pedro Alvarez a couple weeks ago is certainly the biggest one). Which leaves me to look at quotes from the new management to guess what they might end up doing, which results in lots of people disagreeing with me in the comments, sometimes because they don't agree with my outlook on what the Pirates should  be doing, but also sometimes because you just can't necessarily take what general managers and team presidents say at face value, and there are always at least a couple of ways of looking at things.

This is frustrating, but I understand, because this (via Primer) is what you get when a GM is honest in public, and it's not pretty.
