Re: Pittsburgh Pirates... will 2012 see them surprise?
I don't think they are better than the Reds. I didn't think they were last year either, but they sure pounded the Reds. I'm not impressed with the Dodgers or Rockies, and the Phillies look pretty bad offensively.
They can be a very troublesome team in 2012, and unlike say, the Astros, I don't think thay should be overlooked.
