Looking Ahead

As the 2017 season nears, the debate becomes who will be the best players on the Pittsburgh Pirates this coming season. Odds are, Jameson Taillon, Gregory Polanco, Jung Ho Kang, and Starling Marte will be among the best Pirates once again in 2017. However, who will be new to the list?

I would expect Andrew McCutchen to have a bounce back season and find himself among the team’s best players in 2017. The same goes for Gerrit Cole. Furthermore, Josh Bell should find himself on this list with a full Major League season under his belt. A healthy Francisco Cervelli is a possibility, too.

Regardless of who the five best players are for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2017, there is one thing we can all agree on. Hopefully, they will be leading the Pirates back to the postseason after missing the postseason in 2016.
