I was going through my old Baseball America annuals and I thought it might be funny to see what the Pirates 2013 lineup was supposed to be in the 2010 prospect guide (they always try and predict 4 years ahead).

C- Tony Sanchez
1B- Jeff Clement
2B- Aki Iwamura
SS- Chase D'arnaud
3B- Pedro Alvarez
RF- Jose Tabata
CF- Andrew McCutchen
LF- Lastings Milledge

SP1- Brad Lincoln
SP2- Charlie Morton
SP3- Ross Ohlendorf
SP4- Zach Duke
SP5- Paul Maholm
Closer- Victor Black

Well they got Cutch and Pedro right.

FYI our 2016 projection

C- Russell Martin
1B- Alex Dickerson
2B- Neil Walker
SS- Alen Hanson
3B- Pedro Alvarez
RF- Gregory Polanco
CF- Andrew McCutchen
LF- Josh Bell

SP1- Gerrit Cole
SP2- Jameson Taillon
SP3- Luis Heredia
SP4- James McDonald
SP5- Kyle McPherson
Closer- Joel Hanrahan (went to press early)

Lets hope they have more correct than they did 4 years ago.

No matter when it went to press, what respectable publication would have Hanrahan with the Bucs in 2016?

Yeah, generally if there is no obvious prospect they just put the vet incumbent in like Martin at C. Still they have obvious prospects at Closer who they could have listed - Black, Morris, Welker, Wilson, et al.

An obvious 'copy and paste' prediction.

+1. That doesn't look bad at all. A FA here and there and it actually might be great (obviously a biased statement, but...).

I wouldn't have Martin in there but, if all those guys panned out like they are supposed to, it sure would be great.

I just can't see that happening. I hope it happens, though.

I'd hope Wyatt Mathisen or Jin-De Jhang is the starting catcher for the Bucs in 2016.
