The Pirates may have overhauled their coaching staff and hired a new general manager and president this offseason, but the prognosticators at USA Today are not optimistic about them heading into 2020.

On Tuesday, USA Today released their 2020 MLB predictions, and they predict the Pirates will finish with a 60-102 record, the worst in the National League. That would be nine wins fewer than they had in 2019, where they finished 69-93, and their worst record in a decade.

Only the Tigers (108) and Orioles (105) have more losses in these projected standings.
