Every Pirate fan shares one top wish, to win. Expecting to see that in 2021 is probably premature especially since I just can’t see Ben Cherington being done moving players from the roster.
I’d love to be covering the World Series for everyone this year, but that was never in the cards for this club. That doesn’t mean we can’t take away some really important things from what we’ve watched.
There are always loose ends to every season, this one is going to leave more open ended thoughts than most. With only 19 games remaining, they’d be well served to not put more on the plate.

It’s easy in this day and age to allow yourself to get caught up in the minute by minute roller coaster as social media brings news and opinion to your doorstep.
