The Pirates were the feel good story of the MLB last year, but this year everyone should see them coming. McCutchen, the reigning NL MVP, should continue to lead the Pirates to contention in the NL Central. With a great lineup and a solid pitching tandem, featuring Francisco Liriano and All-Star closer Jason Grilli, look for the Pirates to remain in the hunt for playoff contention.
