Tougher for "my" Pirates
March 19, 2013 - Burt Angeli
The owner of The Daily News also oversees Major League Baseball's Pittsburgh Pirates. Therefore, I also cheer on the Pirates at every opportunity.
Boston Globe baseball expert Nick Cafardo has cast some doubts on the Pirates snapping their 20-year losing drought.
"They were 79-83 last season, so it could happen, right?" Cafardo wrote. "But consider that they were 12-5 against the hapless Astros in the same division. The Astros are gone. They were also 4-11 against the Brewers. With Houston gone, the Pirates are scheduled to play Milwaukee 19 times this season.”
