The Pirates Sell

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been selling off the rest of their remaining veteran players this season, their umpteenth rebuilding project since the team's last winning season in 1992. No, they haven't made the playoffs since their best players were a skinny Barry Bonds and Kyle Drabek's father.

This got me thinking- I think the Pirates are about due to become good again. Pittsburgh's a great sports town, that never has trouble fielding winning teams in football or hockey (champions both this year.) Not to mention, the franchise has a pretty illustrious history, and plays in one of the best stadiums in the game. How awesome would it be if there were a Phillies-Pirates playoff series?
