MLB seems to boil down to limiting the losses due to managerial skills, talent, and confidence.

The teams that seem to be able to deal with those attributes the best seem to come on top.

Or, in other words, teams with those attributes don't beat themselves...or at least less than other teams.

The Pirates HAVE TO win these games! They've had a great start winning in Milwaukee against the Brewers last night. Can they continue tonight? Can they win more games than they lose against their opponents for the remainder of the season?

If the Bucs can win and continue to win...who knows? Their destiny is in their own hands. If they lose out but continue to win, then you credit the other teams...and you think back on the season and think about all of games the Pirates SHOULD of won...who failed...who did not do their job when it counted.

I know I'm generalizing. Painting the picture with a broad brush...but those are my thoughts right now.

Go Bucs!...and keep WINNING!!!!

PS: I forgot to mention depth and injuries. The Bucs have had their share of injuries more so than last year. And depth at all positions seems to still be an issue...especially the Bench and the Bullpen...

So you are saying the key to getting to the playoffs is to lose less and win more?

You must not like my posts rellime. I wasn't going to respond to your over-simplification of my thoughts...but I will.

I think there was more to my post than you portrayed with your response.

And as I type I've decided to quit typing. I'll just choose to use your favorite Smilie: :roll:
