Welcome to the PBN Around the Horn. Here you’ll find news and notes from across Major League Baseball, your Pittsburgh Pirates, and around the Sports Now network.
Everyone usually feels like a fresh start is needed with a new year coming. With that fresh start comes the age-old “new year’s resolution,” although most of them are never followed through, there still leaves a chance that some of them can be fulfilled. All of this resolution talk got me thinking about what the Pirate’s resolutions might/should look like, and it might go something like this.
- Find one or two consistent starting pitchers
2. Figure out who can fill the corner outfield spots long-term
3. Play as many young guys as possible
4. Move Wil Crowe to the bullpen and see what he can do
5. Extend Bryan Reynolds (This one is more of a hope/wish)
Pirates Prospects Notes
There is some big personal news for myself and my podcast partner Anthony Murphy at P2. We both have been brought on to contribute and are excited for the opportunity. Anthony gives us a great piece on Justin Meis on Monday.
