    If Page plays to there fullest potential, the sky is the limit for the Pirates, we definitely have the talent, just not much experience. This year WILL/HAS build confidence for a team that will be LOADED next year. Watch out.

    On a side note, if the Pirates beat North Meck tonight, I think ill have to poop my pants.
