I opened this little writing shop just over a year ago on May 7, 2010. Thanks to all of you who have been reading in that time. Let me know what you’d like to see more of.

Feelin’ good

The Pirates are over .500 and on a three game winning streak. Life for this fan is pretty good right now.

Thursday Trade Tree – Tony Pena

This deal is looked back on as a prototype rebuilding trade. Tony Pena was the best player – an All-Star catcher- on some very bad Pirates teams in the 80’s. In return the Pirates got three good players, two of whom played major parts on the back-to-back-to-back division winners in 1990-1992.

Not much left at the end, but the last glory the Pirates franchise has known wouldn’t have happened without that trade.

As always, I am open to suggestions and comments. If there’s a trade tree you’d like to see then let me know.
