Gary was the one I was thinking of, actually. After he was removed from the board, I believe he made a "triumphant" return as YTownHitman, and was again removed after about a month. I fear he has returned yet again.

Yeah, like AZ, I don't get the same tone. If it is Gary though, it won't take long to find out.

Ahhh, VOR though. That's when you could get a quality insult thrown your way!

You obviously haven't been around that long. The last couple of months have been quite tame by board standards. Losing baseball and nice summer days have a lot to do with that.

VOR was a good contributor. He had good insight and some thoughtful analysis of players.

He warned that Pat Meares was a horrible acquisition, even before the injury. I responded that he was an upgrade over Lou Collier, so he was not as bad as VOR feared.

VOR made the case that acquisitions like Meares take attention away from that position, since the team feels it has somebody to play SS. He pointed out that these decisions add up, until you have a team of Meares-like players and are simply horrid. Get top-end talent, he would ask.

Guys like Alvarez, Tabata, Morris, Grossman, Miller, Ohlendorf, etc.

Everything you say about Nutting was first said about Art Rooney, you know.

HebneR, when you say "out" does that mean you're leaving the board?

I hope not - I don't agree that things are as bleak as you say, but I agree that a few good moves doesn't make this team on its way to greatness.

Either way, it's nice to have a variety of opinions here.

No, it's a board where you can't expect to have your butt kissed just because you have an opinion. Somebody might dare to disagree with your opinion and challenge you on it.

And thats why I'm leaving.When somebody does tell you what they think it's fine as long as it's what they think.If not the whining begins.

I said I liked the moves,believed they finally had what looks to be sharp baseball men in place.That wasn't good enough because I wasn't butt kissing yet.

This isn't a daring board,it's a board that leads cheers and only gets nasty when someone dares to tell their side.This is a board for blue skys only.Anything else is attacked.

One post I saw yesterday was what all these years of losing gets you on this board.Comparing this club to Art Rooney's Steelers of years ago saying call me when The Pirates reach 40 years of losing as if setting a Major League record of losing seasons in a row is small potatoes.

Is this whats happened to Pirate fans?So much losing that many not only don't care but don't mind it??? If thats what has happened then nothing more should be said.You should be sad for calling yourself baseball fans.you are almost afraid to say anything against the Organization for fear of being labeled fair weather.Well thats the kind of fan I'd be ashamed to be.Thats a pushover ,a Coward of a fan.

One more thing.Pretty funny to read the posts from yesterday trying to guess who I may be in the way of past posters.Are things that bad where you label people in one group if they are not Pro Organization? You really are amazing.Maybe it's Elvis or maybe it's somebody that posted here before who was evil because he didn't see wonderful things.

Nice Board.

Quite frankly, quit yer whining Hebner.

You've recieved nothing approaching a serious "attack" in any shape or form.

My lord, the current configuration of posters are a bunch of wussies (that is not an insult) compared to what existed here before.

You walk away because someone challenges your pontificiations? Dear lord, you should see what happened here during the Jason Schmidit trade.

You have not been subject to Gary, VOR, or any number of the great insulters of this board. Wilton, Parrot and Sisy merely give you an opinion based on their stats preferenece, and you fold like a paper in the wind????!!

Yeah, maybe you should find another place to stroke your ego.

This may now qualify as the longest goodbye since Brokeback Mountain.

Anyone who thinks that the members of this board are simply homers wasn't reading last year or before. The heat expressed here should have started a fire in the crotch of Jim Tracy, Dave Littlefield, and Bob Nutting.

The present management team looks like all-stars in comparision. If members seem to back management now, it's really because there has been a major sea change in the way things are being done. I see nothing wrong with supporting those changes.

No one thinks that the job is done. But this is a very encouraging first year and I count myself as one who is very pleased with the Pirates.
