First Pitch: A Look at Everything Going Wrong For the Pirates Bullpen This Year

If there’s one thing Neal Huntington has been consistently good at, it has been building a bullpen and finding a lot of quality relievers. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case during the 2014 season. Last year the Pirates had a ton of success stories with their bullpen.
