Update – A Rough Pitch

My last post chronicled how the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team with EIGHTEEN STRAIGHT losing seasons, were forced through arbitration to give pitcher Ross Ohlendorf a nearly 400 percent raise even though he was often hurt and only compiled a 1 win versus 11 loss season.  In Pittsburgh the Steelers’ season is over so football, the city’s favorite sport, until the NFL draft.  The Penguins are limping so badly with injuries that their season is on the brink of collapse.  They still enjoy strong fan support and are exciting to watch in anticipation of Sidney Crosby’s return (hopefully).  Other than college basketball, hoops is not a big sport in the town.
