While it has long been a popular theory, Bill Simmons has been most vocal over the last decade in pushing the ''Nobody Believes in us!' team.

We all know those guys; those downtrodden, long shot, 'Cinderella', 'feel good' stories. The 2003 Angels, 2004 Marlins, 2005 Chi-Sox, 2006 Cardinals... come to mind.

Well, based on available evidence, I'd say that the Pirates qualify:

'Experts' don't think this team is for real. Their logic is sound enough, but you can't account for heart---especially come playoff time.

This team believes in itself and, as last night showed, the fans believe, too.

Can't wait for Thursday!

Anybody who does not "believe" in a team with three dominant starting pitchers, a bullpen featuring elite arms dealing in the mid to upper-90's, with two lefties among that group, elite defense, some power hitters, and an elite player around whom the team is built, is stupid.

Forrest Gump-stupid.
