    Pirates 8 Games Above .500

    Yes the Pittsburgh Pirates are 44-36 and are tied for first place in the NL Central.......The Pirates pitching staff led by the resurgence of A.J. Burnett and James McDonald blossoming into a top of the rotation starter have carried the Bucs, for the first part of the season....The Pirates bullpen also has been one of the best in MLB all season......

    The Pirates offense was awful for the first two months of the season and really Andrew McCutchen, carried the entire lineup on his back those first two months......But in June the Bucco bats came alive and the Pirates offense was among the MLB leaders in all offensive categories.....Pirates 1B/OF Garrett Jones has been on a tear recently........I still get frustrated with Pedro Alvarez, at times but his fielding has greatly improved and Pedro has come up with some clutch two out base hits this season.......Pedro has rose his BA 30+ points in recent weeks.......Some of the other vets on the club are showing life and recent addition of FA journeymen Drew Sutton has given a boost to the lineup......Sutton had a walk off HR to win the game last night in the bottom of the 9th.....

    I still would like to see the Pirates make a few moves before the deadline since I do think this team is going to compete all season.......The 19 straight losing seasons will end this year.......BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Andrew McCutchen NL MVP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think so babe....I know this team collapsed last year but I think they have grown from that......The offense has come alive the last month and the pitching has been solid all year......10 games above .500 and if the Reds lose tonight the Bucs will be 2 games up......

    I was 13 the last time the Pirates were a winner....lol I'm 33 now....lol I'm happy for the younger fans finally experiencing some winning Pirates baseball.....Usually by July the Pirates are out of it and everybody is gearing up for Steelers training camp....I love the NFL and the Steelers are my first love....But I want a Pirates World Series more then a Steelers Super Bowl....I never have experienced the Pirates winning a World Series....They won in 79 the year I was born but I was 5 months old so I don't count that....lol Those three straight NLCS losses from 90-92 still sting to me....lol

    I was born in 93 so I've never lived through a winning season. My family likes to say "I'm sure there's no correlation " I would love to be a Pirates fan but they've never really given me a reason to be a fan. Hopefully it'll change soon!

    Hop on the bandwagon Babe.........Great times are coming for the Pirates.....Andrew McCutchen is already one of the best players in the game and signed a long term deal before this season started......Pedro Alvarez has the potential to be a 30-35 HR hitter.......Neil Walker is solid and is one of those players you need to have a winning team...James McDonald has really blossomed into a top of the rotation type starter...I havn't even touched on all the talent the Pirates have in the minors.......Starling Marte, Jameson Tallion, Garrett Cole, Luis Heredia, Josh Bell are the top five Pirates prospects.......There is a ton more since the team has been drafting better and have been more aggressive in signing players in the foreign market.....They have been tapping into Latin America more lately......

    Wow..I haven't followed baseball for years. I go to a few Phillies games a year just because it's fun place to eat a hot dog and have a beer. I am old enough to have seen a couple world series, I was in my mom's tummy in 1960 I vaguely remember my father screaming. HAHAHa..I was 11 in 71 and remember it. I was a bb freak than, knew stats and everything. We lived and died with BB and the Pirates than.

    I was 19 in 79 and remember that much more. Drinking beer and singing we are family! Great times. The early 90's were fun taking my son to the games. By far the worst loss of any game in any sport was losing to the Braves. Barry friggin Bonds couldn't throw him out and Sid couldn't run. I was literally sick for days. Jim over rated 2 packs a day Leyland made me crazy. I went to opening day the first game at PNC. Willie Stargell died that day I will never forget the beauty of the stadium and the sadness of Sarge. I moved shortly there after and have never been back to PNC. I'll be in Pittsburgh in Sept and will try and catch a game.

    Thanks for posting B&G..I'll hop on the bandwagon!

    Yeehaw
    48-37 at the break all I can say is wow. Hopefully we can make a deal and get another OF I believe Tabata has seen his days in the outfield. We could also use another starter Bedard is struggling.
