Pirates offseason preview at MLBTR

H.Darr Beiser-USA TODAY

I wrote the Pirates offseason preview for MLBTR. I wonder about the chances that the Pirates will do something big and surprising this offseason, given their farm system and the lack of ideal options at their positions of need. I'm sure Neal Huntington won't make a big move if offseason conditions dictate that he shouldn't, but if an opportunity presents itself, this would be a great time for the Pirates to pull off a blockbuster trade, probably for a hitter -- they have the pieces to make it happen, they have very reasonable hopes of contending, and they have the full support of the city.
