Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the MLB. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Pittsburgh Pirates fans and fans across the country.
Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are currently 8-13 in the Grapefruit League. That’s near the bottom of the standings. It’s not THE bottom, but close. But there have been some signs of life. Mitch Keller looks like a bona fide rotation piece. Ke’Bryan Hayes is showing some unexpected pop, Travis Swaggerty is hitting almost .400 this spring, Canaan Smith-Njigba is batting .329, the Bucs recently had a nice, little win streak and have taken of their last nine.
So what we want to know how you feel the Pirates have looked relative to your expectations? Better, worse or about how you thought they would?
We’ll be back in just a few days with the results of the SB Nation Reacts survey. Thanks for voting!
