With the season now just days away, it’s time for the Rum Bunter staff to begin making their predictions for the 2020 edition of the Pittsburgh Pirates
At long last, the 2020 season is just around the corner for the Pittsburgh Pirates. By the end of next week, Major League Baseball should be in full swing. So, of course, that means now is the time to make our predictions for what we think is going to happen.
Who will be the team MVP For the Pittsburgh Pirates? Who will be their rookie of the year, and who will be breakout candidates? Which positions are the strongest, and weakest? And what will the team’s final record be?
It’s a bit harder to predict what’s going to happen in a season like this. After all, this will be the shortest season in MLB history and one that could be thrown off the rails by the coronavirus at any point. That said, all of us here at Rum Bunter will do out best to make predictions to what’s going to happen throughout 2020. So without further ado, let’s get into it, starting with what I think the team’s record will be and why.
