    I do not know if i want to support a team that has mismanageed itself in such a terrible way for nearly
    2 decades!!!

    getting average players, terrible drafts, horrible Free agency signings, trading away any decent players for has beens or never will-be's....
    The fans are seriously running out of patience!!!
    This area of fans have proven that if you put a winning product on the field, diamond, or ice, they will support you!!!!!!!
    so do that!!!!

    Hopeless

    I would love to see the Pirates compete again. Forget about championships, I just want them to still be in the conversation come September. When is the last time they were a factor in a pennant race except for supplementing other teams rosters? I now believe that the Pirates hopes are about the same as the Raiders. Until they get owners who care more about winning than the profit margin they will continue to serve as a MLB punchline in baseball jokes. I grew up watching Parker, Stargell, Clemente and the likes. I believe some empty promises were made when the team was begging fans to build them a new stadium. Still waiting to break out of the bottom 3 lowest payroll in baseball category.
