The Pirates possibly will make a few changes in the outfield. After trading the whole Pittsburgh outfield, they lost almost all of its power. Slumping Brandon Moss and Nyjer Morgan are still placeholders for this year. But next opening day it could be Gorkys Hernandez, Andrew McCutchen, and Jose Tabata.

All us Pittsburghers loved the power we used to have. It is not necessarily gone— Andrew McCutchen may have some power potential—but considering he never hit more than 17 in a year there may be a slim chance, but hey look at Nate Mclouth's minors stats compared to his major league stats.

I owe a lot of my baseball knowledge to www.baseballreference.com and www.mlbtraderumors.com
