If the Pirates are going to meet their high expectations this season, they'll need a few players to step up to the next level. Left fielder Starling Marte and starting pitcher Gerrit Cole are two players on track to have breakout seasons.

Starling Marte, LF: Marte's Pirates' debut was even more impressive than Cole's, as he launched the first major league pitch he saw over the left-center wall in Minute Maid Park.

It’s finally baseball season and Pirates fans have plenty to be excited about. Coming off consecutive playoff appearances, the Pirates are poised to field what general manager Neal Huntington called the “deepest and most talented” team he has assembled.

“I think there’s an element that the Pirates have shown over the past few years that the sum might be a little bit greater than the parts,” former major leaguer and MLB Network analyst Billy Ripken

Mar. 7, 2009 was more than a sunny, brisk day in Pittsburgh. That day nine years ago was hardwood ecstasy, a constant drug that flowed through the veins of a western Pennsylvania college basketball junkie faster than it takes the bathtub section of I-376 to overflow with water after a raging rain storm.
