Thoughts With 8 Days Till The Opener

We’re eight days away from the start of the 2017 Pirates opener vs. the Red Sox in Fenway Park.

As with most team in MLB,  the Bucs have a bunch of questions entering the seasons.

Will the Pirates be able to improve upon their 2016 season of 78-83?  Who will play third base? Will Andrew McCutchen be able to regain his MVP form? Do they have enough starting pitching depth? Who will Clint Hurdle’s closer be?
