Congrats To The Pittsburgh Pirates!
Our country awoke this Saturday morning to find the perennial doormat of the league, the Pittsburgh Pirates perched atop the NL Central Division!
Let me be the first to congratulate the Buccos on their accomplishment. I know it's mid July and they haven't really won anything yet, but I don't think they'll be there long and I want to put in a good word for them while I can.
Why won't they stay in first place? Well, they won't be playing my Astros all year. The victories will get tougher.
For now at least, the Pirates are looking down on the rest of the division. Somewhere, Stargell and Clemente are smiling.
