The Official 2012 Pirates Thread!
This time last year we already had pages of Bucco banter, admittedly it was only between about 5 of us but we did our part as fans. I know this year the excitement is focused elsewhere; the Pens quest for the cup, the Steelers money problems, and Pitt's.....uh er CBI Championship?!?!
So I thought I would put a little focus on the Bucs who open the 2012 season tomorrow at 12:30 PM ET in PNC Park against the Phillies.
What are people's expectations for this year? Who are the players to watch? What pitcher will emerge as the ace? Who will put together an All-Star season? Will the 19 year losing streak come to an end? What are your predictions on the season, their record, and the players?
