The Pirates Suck

Since I have nothing much too say today (still recovering from a wild, wacky Easter weekend in Pittsburgh), let me just say that the Pirates are the worst organization in the league. Chris Shelton went yard again last night, making him the fastest American Leaguer to ever to hit nine home runs. And as David Schoenfield pointed out in this column yesterday, the Pirates didn't protect Shelton on their 40-man roster after the 2003 season, and the Detroit Tigers drafted him the Rule 5 draft for $50,000. Only the sweet memory of the Steelers' super bowl victory is keeping me sane right now.

PS - This gives me an opportunity to link to the diversion of the week - this baseball game.


  • The Pirates should look into this FetchFido pitcher. He's got a killer changeup.
