Pittsburgh Pirates Betting

A new era beckons in the Steel City as Clint Hurdle’s nine-year reign as manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates came to an end last November. Hurdle led the Pirates to three consecutive playoff berths from 2013 through 2015 which was the most successful era since the glory years of Jim Leyland and Bobby Bonds from 1990 through 1992. However, Hurdle failed to produce a post season berth in his last four years and was thus fired. How much of that was Hurdle’s blame is of great debate. The Pirates notoriously thin bottom line and payroll has usually been a franchise detriment.

Last year the Pirates compiled MLB metrics of 20th for run production, seventh for batting average, 19th for OPS, 27th for home runs, 19th for stolen bases, 26th for earned run average, 25th for WHIP, 14th for strikeouts, 16th for quality starts, 31st for fielding and 23rd for bullpen.

Taking the mantle from Hurdle is Derek Shelton, who was a career minor leaguer as a player and has been a Major League coach from 2005 through 2019. He has spent the last two years with the Minnesota Twins where he served as bench coach.

General manger Ben Cherington is also new on the job as he was named by the Pirates last November. Cherington is part of the Theo Epstein managerial tree and in fact is a native of New England. He was executive vice president and general manager of the Boston Red Sox from 2011 through 2015. While at Boston Cherington was named Major League Baseball Executive of the Year in 2013. With the arrival of Cherington there is understandable hope that he can turn the Pirates into a consistent winner.

2020 Season Preview

Pittsburgh will begin the 2020 season ranked 28th in the Major Leagues for team payroll ahead of only the Miami Marlins and Baltimore Orioles. Starting pitcher Chris Archer is the highest paid Pirate with right fielder Gregory Polanco and first baseman Josh Bell next.

Josh Bell is the Pirates cleanup man and is coming off a career year for 2019. Bell scored 94 runs with 37 doubles, 37 home runs, 116 runs batted in, a .277 average, .569 slugging percentage, and .936 OPS. As a result of the big year, Bell was a 2019 National League All-Star.

Right fielder Gregory Polanco missed three quarters of last season but was a solid producer in 2018. Last year in just 42 games Polanco hit .242 with a slugging percentage of .425 and OPS of .726. He scored 23 runs with eight doubles, six home runs, and 17 runs batted in. Much more is expected from Polanco for 2020.

Left fielder Bryan Reynolds had a solid rookie campaign for 2019. Reynolds hit .314 with a .503 slugging percentage, .880 OPS, 83 runs, 37 doubles, 16 home runs, and 68 runs batted in.

Right hander Joe Musgrave is the projected number one starter of the Pittsburgh rotation. Musgrove was 11-12 in 2019 with a 4.44 earned run average and WHIP of 1.22. It was far and away the most productive season of his four-year big-league career.

Another right hander, Trevor Williams is the expected number two starter. Last year Williams took a big step back after a promising 2018 campaign. For 2019 Williams was 7-9 with a 5.38 earned run average and WHIP of 1.40.
