Sunny Days

first_img“The sun’ll come out tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun! Just thinkin’ about tomorrow clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow, ’til there’s none! When I’m stuck a day that’s gray and lonely. I just stick out my chin and grin and say, Oh! The sun’ll come out tomorrow. So ya gotta hang on til tomorrow come what may. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow! You’re always a day away!” (“Tomorrow” from the musical “Annie”) It is a drab and dreary Monday morning. I hope the sun comes out today.Philadelphia is the land of cream cheese and the ultimate “cheesesteaks.” I say the word “steaks” sort of tongue-in-cheekish because every steak joint in Philly will swear on their grandmothers’ tombstone that they are the best. See in Philly even when they are not the best they will swear by all that is Holy that they are. So when they finally achieve excellence in anything they will crow, crow and crow until their vocal chords explode.They have a reason to brag about their baseball team. They do not only have young guns, they have a few young cannons. The Phillies don’t have many weaknesses. They are ba….d boys on offense, defense, special teams, oops, wrong sport.The Phillies do not have to worry about hearing the skeletons of the decisions of past general managers rattling in their closet. Their management team has been on a two decade construction campaign in regards to their franchise.Meanwhile, Dave Littlefield, the past Pittsburgh Pirates general manager from their sister city from the west, literally ended up being viewed as the real Santa Claus in July.Back in Aug. of 2006 in article titled: “Admiral of the Fleet,” I sat down with Kevin McClatchy the ex-bmoc, (big man on campus) for the Pirates prior to his relinquishing the point man role for the Bucs.When I pressed him about the reign and future of then GM/VP “Dave the Terrible” who lasted until Sept. 2007, McClatchy had this to say: “The bottom line is winning and we haven’t done that yet so there is a lot of pressure. There’s a lot of pressure on me. There’s a lot of pressure on Dave. We need to have a stronger second half. I’ve been very clear this year. The first half was unacceptable. We lost 25 one run games, that means you’re in a lot of games but the truth is you still lost the games.We can’t be content with one run losses or that’s where we will continue to be. We made some trades and moved some folks out of here. You have to perform. We all understand the pressure is on us but that’s the nature of this business.”This is 2012, four years eight months since the tenure of Littlefield and the Pirates are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in regards to rebuilding from their lowest minor league affiliate to the boys who daily patrol the “diamond” over at PNC Park.There must be pressure and lots of it placed upon the shoulders of the Pirates GM Neil Huntingdon as well as the Buc’s skipper Clint Hurdle in regards to the Pirates righting the ship and winning now!The season, reason and rhyme for excuses, woulda, shoulda, coulda is long past. Almost as if it were appearing on cue, the sun has come up and is blazing across the horizon. You can bet your bottom dollar that through all of the misery and pain of losing the sun will one day again shine brightly on the Pittsburgh Pirates.Just remember this; the same Steelers that we expect to annually win or contend for an NFL championship is the same team we expected to lose almost every game just 45 years ago. No one expected the sun to even rise, forget about shining on a hapless directionless franchise that seemed bent on inventing new ways to lose on a game by game basis but ya know what the same team that the world laughed at; the world now laughs with as the men of steel daily put a fresh coat of polish on six NFL Championship trophies.The day is coming. I have been accused of being, rabid, crazed and delusional in regards to my annual so-called rose colored predictions regarding the soon to be successful Pittsburgh Pirates. When I was in my early twenties I attended a church service featuring a prominent “prophet” and faith healer. After the service concluded, my father who was a devout Christian and a man of God for his entire life asked me a question. “Peanut, what did you think of the service?” I replied that “I thought it was great but one thing puzzled me. The “prophet” promised every sick person there that they were healed. How could he promise that? I asked.” Dad said, “If he bats one percent everyone wins.” That leads me to say; Pittsburgh has heard all of the lofty promises before but if the Pirates top .500 or get a wild card playoff slot in 2012 we all win.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741.)last_img read more
