NEIL WALKER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kid writes letter asking for autograph, Pirates reply shamefully (pic)

Pittsburgh Pirates: Wasted money

(Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug) One of the consistent excuses to explain the Pittsburgh Pirates’ lack of competitiveness over the past two decades is the “small market, low payroll” answer.  That in itself should frustrate to fans, because when Pirates’ ownership financed the building of $216,000,000 PNC Park- a large portion of which using taxpayer dollars- fans were...
