Nah, just kidding. They're currently honoring Roberto as it's coming up on 45 years since he passed on. Other Bucs news:

1. Maybe Glasnow is better in the bullpen.
2. Prospect Hearn due for a breakout in '18
3. Taillon is resilient and focused.
4. 2018 Season Tickets on sale.

Where does this rank in comparison to the best off-season ever, I wonder?

Remember...we’re too stupid to appreciate this ownership, and don’t deserve a world championship.

The Bucs PR team trying to make lemonade out of the lemon that was the 2017 season:

According to this information from the PIRATES website, here is what the Pirates have accomplished over time:

Since 1882, the Pirates have won 5 world championships with 10,394 wins vs. 10,233 losses.
That translates to a 0.504 winning percentage, or 161 games above .500.

From 1980-2017 (last world title), they have 2,828 wins vs. 3,194 losses.
That translates to a 0.470 winning percentage, or 366 games below .500.

From 1993-2017, the last divisional championship, they have 1,807 wins vs. 2,172 losses.
That translates to a 0.454 winning percentage, or 365 games below .500.

From 2007 (Nutting assumed control Jan. 2007) to 2017, they have 838 wins vs.942 losses.
That translates to a 0.471 winning percentage, or 104 games below .500.

You might think Pirate fans would punish failure, but attendance records show the contrary to be true.
From 2010 to 2015 attendance rose every season, including 2010-2011-2012 when the team was still losing.

Moreover, 2017 attendance was only about 21,000 less than it was in the 2011 season -- I wonder if ticket prices were higher in 2017? Anyway, at this rate in about another decade or so the Pirates should be around .500 all-time with 5-world championships. I don't know how many players/coaches/managers will still be alive then from 1960-1971-1979 for more reunions but I'm guessing the concerts, pirogi races, pet nights and $35 glutton fests will still be quite popular.

At least the Cleveland owner was better looking.
