| The Pittsburgh Pirates have a lot to look forward to this year. Knowing that they must improve this season to bring Playoff baseball to PNC Park, the Pirates went to the off-season looking to get better in every aspect of the game. With Freddy Sanchez, Jason Bay and Tom Gorzelanny leading the way, the Pittsburgh Pirates, under new Manager John Russell, certainly have the firepower to turn heads in the NL Central this season.
Also returning to the Pirates this season will be 2006 NL batting champion and third baseman Freddy Sanchez. The Pirates know that a trip to the playoffs is not out of the question in the wide-open NL Central. Join the Pirates at PNC Park this season.
