The tears may be salty but the beer (http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/madhouse-t ... ut/199906/) is awfully tasty.

As I tweeted in tears, @J_C_Steel: Two decades of losing is over. The Pittsburgh Pirates are winners again. Thank for ending it before it hit holy No. 21. #RaiseIt #Pirates

Heck of a win. Now on to bigger and better things. Would it be asking too much to have a few winning seasons in a row and some playoff wins?

I'm VERY happy...and it's official. The Bucs finally have a winning season. Now, on to bigger and better things like winning the division!

And, I really want to say last's night 1-0 win against Texas just reaffirmed to me that I'd trade half of Pedro's HR's for base hits that drive in runs. How many times has Pedro come to the plate this season with opportunities to drive in runs and proceeded to make an out...many times striking out?

I know other Pirates have been guilty of this too ie: Jones. Runs crossing the plate more consistently versus the occasional HR are more important to me.

Let's hope the Pirates can generate a more potent offense now and until the end of September. Runs batted in with runners in scoring position. If it's a HR...great...but a single or double will do for me! Even a sacrifice fly ball as long as the Pirates end up scoring runs.

You probably lose to Washington and Houston if you do that, off the top of my head.

...and right now on foxsports.com the lead story is the dust up between Girardi and Showalter. Let's face it the Pirates breaking the streak should really capture the imagination of the sports world at large. Maybe not in Pittsburgh because we want more then just 82 but who can't get behind a franchise that has been down for 20 years. We are the ultimate underdog. I can't believe that Yanks-O's get more clicks than the Pirate Story but I guess I am wrong.
