Postcards From Bradenton: Maybe This Will Be The Year

We have all heard so many times that action speaks louder than words. That seems to be the case with the Pirates players and coaches this spring. There are no slogans or printed t-shirts with “finish” on them in the clubhouse it just seems to be understood that this is a very important year. A year when winning is expected. The last two years have given the fans a taste of what post season baseball could be like but still are dealing with a losing streak of 20 straight years.
