QUESTION: Will Bader be given preference in CF for opening day or will it be whoever performs best in spring training? Also: The Pirates swept out their front office. Is a fire sale of the players fast approaching free agency likely to materialize soon?
COMMISH: Bader will have to compete for his job this spring. That center-field battle will be wide open.
The Pittsburgh Pirates will be doing plenty of business. And I, for one, would have interest in left/center fielder Starliing Marte.
