Who are the Pirates Rivals?

Post by sportprof101 »

Hello Bucs Fans,

With the help of message board members beginning in 2014, we—the students and professors of the Know Rivalry Project—began answering this question and others related to rivalry in the MLB. Please help us update and expand our results to ensure that the Pittsburgh Pirates are included by taking 9 minutes to complete our newest survey:

Our previous results have been featured in numerous sports media outlets, as well as the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. You can view those results, links to media coverage, and learn more about us at our KnowRivalry.com website.

We use the Qualtrics online survey software for data collection. This academic research has been approved by two US universities' Institutional Review Boards (IRB) and it poses no risks to respondents. You'll find more information on the disclosure agreement that is required to start the survey. Thank you for helping us to include the Pittsburgh Pirates by participating and please share this with any other fans that may also help.

To me it’s the Reds.It used to be the Phillies and later the Mets back in the NL East days.But now the whole NL Central is.But especially the Reds.Still can’t really get over the 1990 NLCS debacle.That was an opportunity lost.
