I’ll be honest: There have been days this season where I’ve felt physically sick waking up at 4 AM, knowing I’ve got to once again focus on this Pirates team every single day.
Covering baseball is a torturous endeavor. Covering a rebuilding, losing organization during the months of August and September? Pure fucking hell.
I say this to note that it was nice to wake up for a few days this week and not have to worry about producing articles. Sure, I had to worry about producing an actual site to host those articles.
About a week ago, I finalized the design for the site, on paper. It took a few days for that design to fully play out onto the site you’re browsing now. The end result is a much more organized Pirates Prospects, with all of the information you need on the Pirates, this site, and the upcoming 2022-23 Guide.
We have a few articles posted today to keep you updated. Those are linked below. Our article drops will resume next week.
Oh yeah, and the site is now free*. The catch is that it’s user-supported, on more of an honors system. More information on the new site is available in First Pitch.
