Imagine our surprise when we were watching the MLB Network last night and the Pittsburgh Pirates came up as a topic surrounding the departure of Prince Fielder from the NL Central. It’s rare the Pirates have a mention in national media, let alone such a bold prediction, so we will take it, even if one of the comments was, ‘heh, the wins have to go somewhere.’
Greg Amsinger was the person who made the prediction. Former big leaguer Dan Plesac said he would go there if Pedro Alvarez has a bounceback 2012 season.
