Description
A season-long chronicle of the 2012 Pittsburgh Pirates' thrilling rise and sudden fall, presented from the view of a 22-year old, lifelong Bucco fan and his tweeting comrades-in-suffering. #LetsGoBucs captures the heartbeat of a fanbase during one of the most tumultuous years in franchise history, and sheds light on the modern baseball fan experience in the smartphone age. Through Twitter, sabermetrics, and good ol' fashioned sarcasm, #LetsGoBucs offers a telling panorama of the Pirates' twentieth consecutive losing campaign. The book details the season's peaks and pits by covering certain events (games, trades, debates, and everything in between) in prose as well as through the social media musings of friends, fellow fans, players, and writers. Post-1992 Pirate history lessons and a guided tour of new age statistical analysis also help place the roller-coaster year in context. By the (disappointing) conclusion, you'll know exactly what it's like to follow a team that hasn't cracked the 81-win barrier in two decades.
