I don't follow baseball much. I'm a casual fan who once in a while checks in to see how my favorite team, the Pirates are doing. (I went to a Pirates game as a wee lad. That's the only reason why.) I don't pretend to understand baseball and lord knows I can't sit through an inning in front of the TV without being bored out of my mind. But, there's nothing else in June/July going on between the Penguins playoff run and Chiefs training camp hits....and the Pirates distract me long enough. I know they've sucked for the last 16 years with consecutive losing seasons and morale is low, but why is it every season the Pirates trade away what little talent they do have to the Red Sox/Yankees/Cubs/big name teams and get next to nothing in return? It's like they're a AAAA team. It's mindboggling.

AAAA is giving them too much credit man.

Their more like a Farm Team, every other teams picks the fruit off of them.

No offense, but there are a lot of Royals fans on this board who aren't going to have much empathy for Pirates fans.

Sorry. Nope. None.

Don't come in our house and whine about sucking. We're the top dogs in this regard, and don't fucking forget it.

We'll take Jack Wilson off your hands. You can have Yuniesky, Farnsworth, Ponson, and your pick of our non power hitters. And I'll buy you a chick-o-stick.

The Pirates have been to the playoffs much more recently than KC.

I don't give a fuck about Pirates fans. We have much more serious problems.
