I've done this post the last few years, so I figured I'd keep it going for this year. Similar to the exercise Baseball America does, all you have to do is take your best shot at predicting the lineup for the Pirates 2 years in the future.
In 2010, I, as many of you, attempted to name the starting lineups for the 2012 Pirates.
It's fun to look at that considering that obviously, we are in 2012.
Last year, we tried our hand at the 2013 Pirates.
So, here we go again. Predict the 2014 Pirates, and laugh at yourself 2 years later. (which will look ridiculous in 2 years because hopefully, prospects come out of nowhere and shock or we have signed some FA's......and not that prospects have flamed out and disappointed.)
