Pirates Owner: Championship Is 2010 Goal

PITTSBURGH, Pa. / January 25, 2010

When your team's owner is named Bob Nutting there is just no way to write a heading including his name but excluding a double meaning.

Anyway, in today's Post-Gazette, Mr. Nutting mentioned that he will be "pleased" with a championship in 2010.

Q: What would you consider a successful 2010?

A: Honestly, I won't be satisfied with any season until we win a championship. Incremental improvement might be encouraging at some level but, in terms of what's satisfactory ... I'll be pleased with a championship season.

It is good to see that Pirates ownership is on board with this blog's goal for 2010. Also encouraging is the rather reserved plans. "Pleased"? Why not "excited" or some stronger reaction? Probably because 2010 will only be the Pirates' first championship in a row.


  1. Since it's the offseason, and we already know your pick for the Series, who do you like in the Pro Bowl?
