The Pittsburgh Pirates are the team for you, they are contenders now after 21 years of never winning a season (I was able to legally drink before seeing them win a season). They have a lot of exciting players and a great baseball park at PNC which is probably the best in the MLB. Andrew McCutchen is also a really good player and also a really cool/good person who should be the face of the league.Statoke wrote:Teams I support tend to be contenders but never actually get their, kind of like my favourite wrestlers. When I got into the NFL two years ago I went with the Bengals, got any Andy Daltons in MLB? Really good and loads of potential but can't get it done when it matters?
Also the Pirates are hopefully about to sweep the Cardinals and take over the NL Central which for too long has been dominated by this Cardinal Hegemony. (Also the Cardinals like to boast about having the "Best fans in baseball" which rubs me the wrong way in its arrogance) The Cardinals are basically Yankees without the self awareness that they are the "Bad guys" of the NL.
