Falco Files: Ready for Baseball...

I can't wait for baseball to officially start.  I have been in a writer block lately.  I haven't been nearly as excited for Black History Month as I thought I would be.

I am anxiously awaiting to see what the young Pirates players can do this year.  They are one of the youngest teams this year.  I fully expect this team to lose close to 90 games this year, but I think the team will be fun to watch.

The player I am most excited to see is the key piece from the 2018 Andrew McCutchen trade.
Bryan Reynolds is a switch hitting outfielder that can play all 3 outfield positions.
He debuted early in the season last year (late April) and was a fourth place finisher for Rookie of Year.
He finished the season in 7th place in the NL Batting Title with a .314 average.
I have been picking up his rookies very cheap.

He will likely bat in the 2 or 3 spot in the lineup and help be a key piece of the Pirates young offense and a core to build around for years to come.


  1. I like last year's rookie crop. Hope he blows up and becomes a perennial all-star for your Bucs.

  2. Bryan Reynolds? Didn't he play Breadpool? And the Breen Lantern?

    ...I'll show myself out.
