I just got done reading this article grading each teams slogans.

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story...mp;sportCat=mlb

I miss our old slogans like "LETS GO TO WORK" and "WE WILL". However, I have terrible memory. Does anyone remember previously used marketing slogans for the Pirates?

Just remembered another, "110%"

Ran across this list on another message board, so I'm not sure how accurate it is.

1997: Let's go to work
1998: What baseball's all about
1999: It's all fun and games
2000: The Pittsburgh Pirates. You gotta see 'em
2001-2002: PNC Park. It's all about you
2003: Come see us play
2004: Every day is game day
2005: Come hungry
2006-2007: We will
2008: Pride, passion, Pittsburgh Pirates
"The business of baseball is to make money, not break even. I don't understand why you think the Pirates should run their team like a charity." - Willlton 6/18/2009

"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009

"Morton is finding himself, now while this may sound weird and out there, but the fact he put on a solo concert at Piratefest shows he finally has the confidence that he lacked within himself that he didn't have in the lower minors." - aso513 2/8/2010

"Dave Littlefield vindicated." - Xiga 4/30/2011 after one scoreless inning of relief by Daniel Moskos.

"Hanrahan and Cedeno would be a gross overpayment for Belt. Sorry, but I'll stick with my realistic analysis of the market and the teams involved." - Steve Zielinski 5/25/2011

"He (Barmes) could have a .000 Batting Average and still be an asset." - bradlej31 5/28/2012

"The last time the Pirates won an extra-inning game in St. Louis that lasted at least 16 frames was April 20, 1986 at Chicago." - Kristy Robinson 8/19/2012

These are the best ones and "We Will," is the best of them all. They leave themselves open to so many jokes with that one and it's just like the pathetic Pirates to not even see it.
fail·ure noun

1. an act or instance of failing or proving unsuccessful; lack of success: His effort ended in failure. The campaign was a failure.

Example: Neal Huntington's rebuild of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball organization.

2. nonperformance of something due, required, or expected: a failure to do what one has promised; a failure to appear.

Example: See above example.

Click here for phonetic pronunciation of failure:

Our philosophy is that every move we make will be logical, rational, and well-researched. They will also be for the long-term benefit of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The quick fixes that have been taken in the past--that you see happen around the league with some teams--are not something we'll be interested in here. Free agent signings that make a small, incremental difference in on-field performance don't have much of an impact on wins. Those decisions are decisions we need to try and avoid, especially when they come at the expense of money that could have been better utilized in player acquisition and development.

In a few more years, my teams might be as good as they were.

They should take a cue from the Penguins, but instead of 'defy ordinary', they should go with 'define ordinary' and give themselves something to shoot for
