Pittsburgh Pirates 2011 Season Preview
While it's important for the Pirate to improve, they really need to take baby steps. After 18 straight losing seasons, the Pirates are looking to inch towards that .500 mark. They don't have the budget to go after big named stars, and lets face it, there farm system doesn't compare to the Ray or the Marlins. A change at Management was needed and Clint Hurdle should give a boost to upper management decisions and in the locker room.
Free agent pick ups Garrett Atkins, Joe Beimel should add depth to the roster, along with a hot hitting Matt Diaz and Lyle Overbay the Pirates may have some sleeper bargain picks to help them win a few more games than they did in 2010. This should surround their star players Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones with some extra fire power. I don't see the Pirates getting to the .500 mark this season, but I do see them inching towards the mark as they stock up for the future.
Pittsburgh Pirates history
The Pirates are a professional baseball team in the National League conference within the Central Division. The Bucs as they are often referred to as joined in the National League in 1887 and enjoyed early success as a franchise. The Pirates would win 3 straight NL Pennants from 1901-1903 and would win their first World Series in 1909 defeated the Detroit Tigers in 7 games.
The Pirates would drop into the Cellar of the National League posting record loses for a few seasons before shocking the nation in the 1925 World Series, after being down 3-1 in the series winning 3 straight to beat the Washington Senators. The Pirates again would reach the WS in 1927 but would be swept by the upstart New York Yankees. During a stretch of 20 years after WWII the pirates attendance would rise to the upper teams in the NL, but would only 1 time finish first, and would post record setting losses of 112 games and 54 games out of first.
It was 1960 when the Pirates would see success making it to the World Series which the underdog Pirates would lose 3 games by 10 or more runs, win 3 close games, and win game 7 with a walk off by Bill Mazeroski. In 1970 the Pirates would win their first of 5 division titles in 7 years behind Roberto Clemente and Willie Stargle, the first team to host an all black infield. This success drove fans to swarm to the ball park and Pittsburgh Pirate Ticket holders were enjoying the run. They would win the 1971 and 1979 World Series. All of the Pirates world series have been won in 7 games. The Pirate would win 3 division titles in the 90's but fail to reach the World Series since 79, of they have posted 18 straight losing seasons. But if history tells us anything, the Pirates have their periods of lows followed by a number of explosive season, we shall see what the future brings.
