A couple of quick observations and notes from Pirate Fest:
-- Clint Hurdle is the anti-JR
-- Bucs pitching mantra: throw the first pitch for a strike, work inside
-- Pedro is a little overweight; move him to first, puh-leese!
-- Opening Day tickets are already limited to single seats and standing room only.
-- The FO really likes Rudy Owens.
-- Hurdle says player accountability starts with him; he makes the lineup. GW loves veiled threats!
-- He also said the Bucs will run and be aggressive. Maybe he didn't see last year's tapes yet...or was that just Lastings Milledge?
