Pittsburgh Pirates: Players You Likely Forgot From 2013
For fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates the 2013 season was an unforgettable one. That said, that team still had players fans have likely forgotten.
Every sports team, professional or otherwise, has seasons in their history that their fans will never forget. For fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates, the 2013 season is one of theses seasons.
Entering the 2013 campaign the Pirates had suffered through 20 consecutive losing seasons. The Bucs had not enjoyed a winning season since 1992, which was also the last time the team had made the postseason.
Fittingly enough, that season ended in absolute heartbreak in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 7 of the NLCS. Maybe this should have been a sign of what was to come for the Pittsburgh Pirates franchise over the course of the next 20 seasons.
Back to 2013… that team snapped the franchise’s 20 year winning and postseason drought. This team featured some of the best players in franchise history such as Andrew McCutchen, A.J. Burnett, Mark Melancon, and Starling Marte.
That said, the team also featured some very forgettable players which is something we will look at today. Without further ado, let’s take a look at three players you probably forgot were members of the 2013 Pittsburgh Pirates.
