What is more amazing is that the next two years, we won over 90 games each year, and STILL missed the playoffs.
We got lucky last year with a winning season and a shot at the postseason, though we didn't make it, after 3 losing seasons. Seems we have another one now.
That's still 4 more winning seasons than the Pirates have had.
I actually thought they'd make a run at .500 since they were only 6 games under going into the break, but they have proceeded to shit the bed right off the bat, against one of the worst teams in the NL. I shouldn't be surprised, because it's what Pirates fans gotten used to. I really wish someday they'll turn things around - they can't continue to suck forever.
