Reasons to Believe? Part 1- A History Lesson

The Pittsburgh Pirates.

The team lately is synonymous with failure. With losing. With below mediocrity. What most casual baseball fans dont know, other than their record 17 straight (and counting) losing seasons, is their long and storied history that is sadly over shadowed by their generation of poor play.

We Were All Witnesses

While I may not have been present at Nationals Park on June 8th, 2010 I had a pretty memorable seat for the debut of the Wunderkid Stephen Strasburg. I was not even in Washington, DC when Mr. Strasburg made his much anticipated Major League debut. I was, however, at a Buffalo Wild Wing in Robinson Township right outside of Pittsburgh, PA.

While I was on the wrong end of the history that was made that night, from the team I supported to being in the wrong city for the debut, I had a unique view for the emergence of the “Next Big Thing” in Major League Baseball.
