After another losing season in 2020, the Pittsburgh Pirates look to continue their “rebuild” in 2021. With a large number of young prospects like star 3rd baseman KeBryan Hayes, the city hopes to see their baseball team get back in the playoff mix. 2nd year Manager Derek Shelton has been receiving many compliments as of late, after seeing his team beat the World Series contending San Diego Padres in a 3 game series. But where does the team go from here? With a lack of pitching and consistent hitters, it’s hard to see the Buccos as a playoff team in 2021, but with a top 10 farm system in the league, there seems to be a little bit of light shining on this dark spot in the city of champions.
