    To bad you can't fire the owner. Fixed the link.

    Don't do that. We don't need you. We didn't need you at the beginning, we don't need you now."

    I couldn't agree with you more. Russell isn't the only problem.

    I grew up a huge Buccos fan in the early 80s. I couldn't name 1 player on the team now. Sad.

    Should have let Mario Lemieux buy the team look what he has done for the penguins. It is a shame that the pirates have one of the nicest ball parks in the majors and the longest losing strike in the history of baseball. Lets see if they can lose 120 games next season

    I really don't understand how people think Mario buying the team would have made a difference, the difference is talent evaluation. The Pens hit on their top picks, the Pirates whiff plain and simple.

    I think Mario or any owner really would probably hire a better scouting team.

    You think Mario would really know anything about baseball talent evaluation that would give him a better idea of who to hire? It's lightyears different than hockey evaluation. When we hired Huntington he had a pretty good track record, though he obviously hasn't done much worth a damn.
