The Pittsburgh Pirates Do Have a Plan

And team president Frank Coonelly is a smart guy. Read here for the details.

You have to figure that if Pirate fans have endured 17 straight losing seasons they can endure a few more. One of the bright spots is the rising farm system, which now ranks 15th out of 30 teams in Baseball America's rankings. Coonelly knows that the fans have the right to be fed up, but in the article he points to bright spots within the Pirates' system.

Read the whole thing and decide for yourself whether you believe this Pirates' regime is en route to turning things around or not. Right now, the big club doesn't look so good, but if you're a Pirates' fan and can draw analogies to the Rays, you might have reason to hope.
