That is a season killer for the Pirates. Kang is probably out longterm with visa issues...totally self-inflected...and Marte thinks he can get away with taking PEDs. That's two big bats out of a lineup that lacks power hitters. Toss in a young pitching rotation and crappy relievers and what you end up with is a crappy season...and a long at that for Pirates fans who believed the team had emerged from a decades long darkness.
