Yes I am ready. As a long suffering Pirates fan I'm hoping we can get back to being average. :eek: We have suffered from the curse of Sid Bream long enough!!!:rolleyes:

:cool: Anyone else out there stoked that at 6:05am Monday morning the first pitch in the 2008 MLB season will be thrown. :D


GO RED SOX!
As of this morning the Sox players were refusing to play today and then get on the plane to Tokyo tonight over a dispute about the coaches and staff NOT getting paid extra to go to Japan (the players are getting an extra $40K each for going). Did they settle that?

Yes, they settled.:)

CoachD growing up the Pirates were my favorite team with Roberto Clemente, Manny Sanguillen, Doc Medich, Kent Tekulve, Rennie Stennet, Willie Stargell etc. The Reds were my second.

When Grady Little became the Manager my best friend's dad became the pitching coach and that is when I became a Red Sox fanatic and a member of the NATION before that I was just a fan. His name is Tony Cloninger and he is a NC boy. Unfortunately the year they won the WS against the Cards he got cancer and that is why they brought in Dave Wallace who is now fighting cancer.
