Trolling? No - I don't troll anybody. A passionate hatred for the system that ruined baseball in Pittsburgh- yes.

Markets of similar size to Pittsburgh continue to flourish in this system. While many of the large market/revenue franchises flounder. It isn't a perfect system but it is not the primary reason for the Pirates troubles. This system has been greatly improved over the last ten years which covers the last two CBAs. And at this point it is not really worse or better than any of the other sports.

The Phillies flipped Nicasio to the Cardinals for a legitimate 22 year old infield prospect. Think about that for a second. Nicasio had so much value that the Phillies were able to get a real prospect for him AFTER the September 1st deadline for playoff roster eligibility. Nicasio can help the Cardinals this month but if they sneak into the playoffs he would not be eligible. Neal Huntington botched the shit out of this situation.

So to recap.

A playoff contender in the Pirates' own division got Nicasio anyway, and the Phillies, not us, got a prospect.

Yep- that worked out GREAT.

I'm super surprised this is a breaking point for some people and not ... not 20+ years ago.

This is probably the first time it's been this outright overt.

It came at a time the Pirates were not technically out of the race, and the "explanation" for the move was so off the rails bizarre that everyone took notice.

Hahahahahahaha - just wondering how you guys are feeling about all that time you've invested in your beloved Buccos? Good luck to you both rooting for small market baseball!


I invest my time in baseball, not necessarily the Pirates. That is because I still play in adult leagues and I umpire amateur ball. And I follow the entire MLB. Frankly, this Pirates team I've invested very little in. I haven't gone to a game at PNC in two years. I haven't watched a live inning of a Pirates game since the Little League classic. I'm mostly just catching highlights and reading an article here or there. And probably half my posts on this forum are actually debating with you. So whatever time I'm invested in rooting for small market baseball is probably on par with the time and energy you invest complaining about the sport.


I used to love the sport but how anybody including yourself can be interested in this system is beyond me. The players union has ruined MLB especially in Pittsburgh. Real happy the NFL and NHL have a clue, although the NFL is heading into a category 5 shit storm during these next negotiations. Lock them all out. They would be begging to play on a corrected pay scale. Begging. Never will happen but I can day dream.

I root for the city and the colors- could care less about the players. I'd even root for you in black and gold.


You are almost the perfect fan for Nutting. You know that cheap son of a bitch loves when fans throw their hands in the air and blame MLB and the "system".

"Poor old Bob Nutting's doing his best but he doesn't stand a chance because of the small market and not salary cap" says the Rube Pirates fan.
