You can see it now and it has finally arrived, the Pirate Nation. On every televised away game, when the television crew scans the crowd, numerous people in the crowd are wearing Pittsburgh Pirate golf shirts, hats, t-shirts, etc. This is great to see and it tells you that Pirate fans nationwide have been waiting for this for a long time(18 years in fact). This team is for real and a solid all around team with many good young players and a really good pitching staff. Any baseball observer can see that Neal Huntington and his staff have made some solid trades over the past few seasons. Some of the players that have been brought up from the minors are playing really well especially left fielder Alex Presley. Right now, Presley is really getting it done at the plate. He is patient with pitches, he understands the strike zone, he has quick wrists, and he can drive the ball when he strikes it. I love his burst of speed and his overall intensity. There is still plenty of baseball ahead, but the 2011 Buccos are bringing the crowds into PNC Park and are creating a buzz around this city. Can this Pirate team win the National League Central Division. With their starting pitching and their bullpen, the Buccos definitely have a shot at winning the division. who would have thunk it?
