The Pirates’ pitchers and catchers report today in what is being called “a new era of Pirates baseball” by manager Clint Hurdle. Andrew McCutchen is gone and so is their ace of old, Gerrit Cole. PECOTA projects 78 wins for the Pirates in 2018. Hard to argue with that. The rotation looks pretty much decided, if not spectacular, with Jameson Taillon, Ivan Nova, Joe Musgrove, Chad Kuhl and Trevor Williams.
