2005 Season Preview - Team #27 - Pittsburgh Pirates

Doesn’t this say everything about the Pirates? Now hopefully Jason Bay’s wrist – that thing that’s causing him to scream in pain – isn’t too damaged, and they’ll have their Rookie of the Year back on the field soon. But this combined with the bad press about low-balling the salaries of Bay and almost-star pitcher Oliver Perez (both acquired in the Brian Giles deal) just sums up all you need to know about this once great franchise. Oh, that and if they’re leading a game in the 9th inning, then Jose Mesa will be pitching to Benito Santiago. Yup, the should-be-forward-thinking Pirates are gonna party like it’s 1989.
