Pittsburgh Pirates: We Are Family!!

EXTRA! EXTRA! The Pittsburgh Pirates are in first-place in the NL Central!

Well, actually they are tied for first-place with the St. Louis Cardinals but in Pirates Nation this is a MAJOR accomplishment this late in the season. This is the first time they've been in first-place this late in the season since 1997 and they haven't been this GOOD since their last playoff year-- 1992.

Making the playoffs may be just a little too much to ask for right now. If they do-- GREAT!

But a winning season is all we ask for Pittsburgh. So just go 34-37 the rest of the way to FINALLY end the 18-consecutive LOSING seasons curse and we'll be in business.

C'mon, ya can do it! Just look how GREAT the standings look today. Keep it up!

  1. I'm not a Pirates, but I am a baseball fan. I love that they're in first place, and even if they don't win the division, just being in the race in September would be great. I just hope the starting pitching will hold up. So far this season, they improved more than any other team. I guess I'll be an honorary fan this season

  2. I agree, Deron. I'm rooting for them to have a successful season also. You have a very interesting blog, by the way.
