The Final Roster Spots and the Endowment Effect

I am constantly watching over the roster, and one of the main aspects I’ve been keeping my eye on this offseason is how the bullpen will shake out.

With the season behind us, it’s finally time to look at where the payroll ended up for 2019. I’ve been tracking it since Day 1 of the season, and it’s always fun to analyze changes throughout the year.

Injury Impact to the Pirates’ Payroll

It’s no secret—injuries have significantly derailed the Pirates’ season. Many weren’t overly hopeful about the team’s chances this year, but many predicted at least a strong chance to finish above .500, as the team was largely the same as last season and it’s a feat they achieved then.
