I try to stick to using numbers as much as possible, this isn’t one of those times.
Based on the off-season moves and a few other observations, I predict that the Pirates will finish the 2012 season with a record of 80-82.
Close, but no cigar.
They will break the curse of Atlanta’s Home Plate next year. They will make the playoffs in 2014.
You heard it here first.
What will be better than even, however, are my Pirates Photoshops will be better than ever.
