Maybe, just perhaps, we are the fire starters, the twisted fire starters. Since Corey's post about firing Jim Tracy, they have been playing good baseball, albeit for only 2 and 1/3 games (they are currently beating the Reds 6-2 in the top of the 4th). So maybe, just maybe, we actually lit a fire up under their asses.
The Pirates desperately needed to show some sign of life. They have been a complete mess thus far in the '06 season. Many predicted them to be a much improved team, even dubbing them up-and-coming. However, they have let their fanbase feeling flat and hopeless. Don't fret my pet, if they start turning the season around now, mid-May, it won't be a lost season all together. Now only if we could see less of Burnitz and more of anybody else, hell, bring Tike Redman back! (Just kidding).
