    4 games over .500 and only 1 game out of first place.....What a season so far Buccos and keep it up....I can't wait for the 2nd half of the baseball season.....Its crazy typing that at the all-star break.......I hope they keep it up and if the Pirates stay in it they can take some thunder away from the Steelers in September........

    I haven't been a baseball fan for awhile now (I couldn't name 1 current Pirate but I agree it's great when you have a full stadium and a good time (at a reasonable cost too). Hopefully they can continue the run and have a Cinderella season and win it all.

    Until baseball changes it revenue and salary policies they will never be a serious contender year in and year out.

    The Pirates will never be a serious contender every year I agree....But teams like the Twins who have small pay rolls have shown that even small market teams can make the play-offs on a consistent basis....The key is drafting and for years the Pirates missed on their drafts.....Part of the season they took lesser talent since they were easier to sign.....But the past three drafts the Pirates havn't been doing that and have been spending a ton in their drafts and in the international market as well........The day is coming when the Pirates will be one of the best in baseball........

    We have to keep this thread alive.......The Pirates are five games over .500 and in first place.......With all the negative press the Steelers have received the past two years its refreshing to have such a positive story like the Pirates....I'm disappointed more Pittsburgh sports fans are not talking about them....**** the Steelers right now and Lets Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
