2013 Pirates vs. 1992 Pirates, Who Wins?




In a one game playoff, what would happen in a hypothetical matchup between the 94 win Bucs of 2013, and the 96 win Pirates of 1992? It's worth pointing out the '92 Pirates did not have Bobby Bonilla in RF that season, but won the East for a third straight time anyway.

The starters for this mythical game are Francisco Liriano for the modern Bucs, and Doug Drabek for the 1992 edition.

On the surface, the 2013 Pirates appear to have the edge in pitching and defense, but the 1992 team may have the offensive advantage. To make things more interesting, how much credence do we place in the location of this game? In other words, PNC Park equals a win for the 2013 club, or Three Rivers Stadium means a win for the 1992 team?

Let the discussion begin!
