But the team, not satisfied with ending 20 years of losing, could be a dangerous playoff contender.

the best part of Lariano's success is that is shows how inept Anderson is as a pitching coach. He gave up on Lariano.

Why wasn't there Mention of Justin's play since the trade?

didn't the pirates get a new stadium that was supposed to make them "more competitive?" oh wait...that was just a lie? sounds vaguely familiar.

I hope Terry notices that the Pirates improved by spending some money on free agents.

Can't blame Sou... I'd get tired of writing about the Twins, too. I think a lot of Twins fans are secretly Pirates fans for the rest of the season.

I know I am showing my age, but I'd love for the Pirates to become the kind of franchise they were in the 1960's and 70's. Some tremendous talent (Clemente, Stargell, Alou, Mazeroski, etc), but also some guys who played above their inherent talent level, plus some great team play. And in the post-season? If you want to see how the great hitters can play in the Series, look at what Clemente did in 1971 and Stargell did in 1979, even though both were in their late thirties. You'll see why the Pirates were World Champs those two years, and why each was a WS MVP.
