I'm going to have a little fun on the eve of Buccos '09 and offer up some predictions for the upcoming season. In all honesty, I’m not big on making predictions. My recent atrocious showing in the 2009 NCAA basketball bracket challenge among family and friends is proof enough. And just so my mother is aware, the team in green does not win every year as I recently suggested. She took that advice and vaulted her way into the final game of the NCAA basketball tournament. Her bracket is in the lead with all the dough on the line, who woulda thunk it! Now on with my 2009 Pittsburgh Pirate predictions or.......randomness, whichever you prefer.
