In 2013, the Pedro Alvarez experiment finally started to pay dividends for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Alvarez, who was chosen second overall by the Pirates in 2008, hit 36 homeruns and drove in 100 runners en route to an All-Star appearance and a Silver Slugger award.

“The Pirates have stayed very patient and you’re starting to see those benefits,” MLB Network analyst and former major league general manager John Hart said.

After the most successful season in 20 years, Pirates fans began anticipating the 2014 opener shortly after the loss to the Cardinals in the NLDS.

The Pirates open the 2014 season on March 31 against the Chicago Cubs at PNC Park.

It’s been a long time since the Pirates’ starting lineup was decided early in spring training, and the team has their share of holes again this season.

The fate of right field and first base remains unsaid, while as many as seven starting pitchers with major league service time will compete for the fourth and fifth spots in the starting rotation.<

The Cardinals and the Tigers are the teams to beat this season, but the Yankees spent a ton of money trying to play catch-up, while the Nats starting pitching may be the best in baseball.

Dusty Baker, Carlos Beltran and A.J. Burnett have left the National League Central, but Ryan Braun returns. St. Louis and Pittsburgh boast top-flight young pitching that should make the 2014 race another competitive one.

A.J. Burnett is in Philadelphia, but the pitchers and catchers in Bradenton are ready to embark upon spring training. The Pirates have several needs that will be worked out during the next six weeks in Florida.

The Pirates followed up their first playoff appearance since 1992 with one of the quietest off-seasons in some time.

The Pirates have had a number of prospects in action in the Arizona Fall League as well as various winter leagues.

As is usually the case when looking at a team's developmental crop of players, there were a handful of participants who stood above the competition and might have taken a step forward in making a n

There were 21 seasons between Pirates playoff games, but Doug Drabek was on the mound for both. The former Pirates ace and Cy Young Award winner started and pitched a gem in Game 7 of the team's ill-fated NLCS contest against Atlanta in 1992.

He also threw out the first pitch of the Bucs' Wild Card victory over Cincinnati last October.

The Pirates have stayed relatively quiet in an offseason that has brought a record contract and a frenzy of other high-profile moves. Even after their best season in more than two decades, though, the Pirates are yet to make a big splash in free agency.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
