    Now would be a good time for the ownership (and management) of the Pirates, to see that there will be NO going back to past methods of “team management.” IF you don’t show loyalty & support to the team-they won’t give a cra* when the chips are down! The Walker & Melancon “dog & pony” show will prove that.
    I am just sad to see a team with such promise, go down in flames at the end of the season. The fans who pay hard earned money to see this team deserved better!
