    The Pittsburgh Pirates Aint No Joke

    Led by field genius Clint Hurdle this team might go deep into the playoffs this season. I don't think anybody wants to play them.

    Bullpen has 2 of the best relief pitchers in MLB in Watson and Melancon.

    Line-up - The once weak line-up now features some great raw power from Ike Davis and Pedro Alvarez.
    They got the MVP McCutchen, and a super star on the rise in Josh Harrison.
    Harrison at the current moment is the best player on the team, even better than McCutchen.

    The starting staff??? now they have been a dissapointment but they have some decent options in
    Locke and Liriano... but they will need a 3rd guy to step up if they are going to win a playoff series. Worley and Volquez are not capable of winning a playoff game... I guess the X factor will be if Gerritt Cole gets his act together.

    bullpen sucks this year

    Harrison and Cutch both with a good shot at the Batting Title

    should be interesting down the stretch.

    I am shocked and dissapointed that the Bucs still most likely won't be breaking their all time attendance record for PNC

    The Reds handed them the game last night. If Reds were healthy the division wouldn't be close. Now if you had the Reds Starting pitchers you would have a great team.

    I do not think they really have good hitting although nobody does

    Pitching will get them in trouble if they get in

    They will probably get a wildcard and go nowhere. Their starters are shit.
