In an interview with, team president Frank Coonelly said that the Pirates will increase the payroll if attendance is on the up swing. Why would he make a comment like that and further get the fans angry at the organization? After all, it’s the Pirates that have to show the fans that they care about winning, not the other way around. The team has gone through 18 years of losing and anything that doesn’t change the current situation ought to anger the fans. They will complain to the talk shows, write letters to the sports editor in the newspapers, and go on the blogs to complain. Besides Nutting’s comments earlier in last week, the Pirates management are turning off the fans and if things don’t get better the losing will continue.
