.........we don't want to "jinx" anything or startle anyone from their current focus, but we're actually in second place, 2.5 games behind St. Louis.
St. Louis 14 6 .700 -
Pittsburgh 11 8 .579 2.5
Cincinnati 10 9 .526 3.5
Chicago 9 9 .500 4.0
Milwaukee 9 10 .474 4.5
Houston 8 12 .400 6.0
And they even swept the Marlins.
I was having a conversation about them a month ago and talked about how I wasn't even going to bother taking in a game of this year. Instead I said that I was just going to follow the Cubs (my 2nd favorite team). The Cubs were touted as having a really strong chance this year, so I talked about how they'd be "my adopted team". But now I find my Pirates sitting above .500 and are actually looking "consistently" strong, and the Cubs langer behind. Yes, I know
it's only the end of April, but one can hope, yes?
(I guess that means I haven't given up hope in my buccos after all!)
