The Pirates found themselves dwelling in last place when the season ended in 2019. This resulted in the firing of of manager Clint Hurdle, general manager Neal Huntington and president Frank Coonelly. Ben Cherington is the new Pirate general manager and Derek Shelton is the new field manager. Travis Williams takes over as president. Cherington won a World Series title as the GM of the Boston Red Sox in 2013. He has his hands full, though, trying to make a winner out of a team that finished 69–93 last season. This is Shelton's initial chance to manage at the major league level. Observers think he has the savvy to restore the Bucs to the dominance they once knew. He should have an improved rotation that includes Joe Musgrove and Chris Archer. The Pirates have some respectable hitters in Bryan Reynolds, Josh Bell and Kevin Newman. Don't expect too much from this team this year. You can buy the Pittsburgh Pirates sports face coverings in our MLB DESIGN FACE MASKS SHOP.
