What I find heartening is that they actually look like a good team going through some early season adjustments, rather than a bad team rising to .500.
Except Wandy looks pretty rough. I know, early season etc, but it doesn't look like he has any weapons out there.

I might be overoptimistic, but I don't see a problem other than some hard baseball ahead, same as everyone else has. Volquez will probably go 1-3 before Locke or Pimentel or Cumpton takes his place. Ishikawa is Jones minus the power; okay.
But the team plays hard and expects to win. That can't be measured, but it can be seen. It can be seen in the difference between the way the team responded to losing streaks in '12 and the way they responded in '13.
I don't predict. But I do anticipate. And I anticipate having a real blast watching the Pirates play this year, a feeling I haven't had for a long time.
