Anyone look at the wild card standings in the NL lately? Here they are sorted by wins (cause I'm too lazy to look at percentages):

40 Cardinals
36 Marlins
34 Brewers
33 Astros
33 Pirates
32 Braves
31 Mets
31 Dodgers
31 Reds

The Cards are doing it with mirrors and now have lost Pujols for an extended period. I expect them to drop like Paris Hilton at a club opening after her third Slow Gin Fizz. Which means: it's anybody's ball game. A mediocre ball club is going to win the NL Wildcard. To paraphrase the Red Sox slogan: Why Not Our Mediocre Ball Club? (quick someone call a trademark attorney).

Seriously, I don't actually expect the Pirates to be the mediocre cream that rises to the top but isn't it nice that we can even entertain the idea on June 12th?

The Marlins are doing it with mirrors, too and that puts the rest of the NL Central within a couple of games of the wildcard....hey it has happened other places....I'm just sayin' back.

Ummmm....I'm not sure you can make a solid argument that the Pirates AREN'T doing it with mirrors. Just sayin'.

Agreed, but an argument could also be made that we haven't played as well as we can, either. The longer the wild-card contenders hover around .500, the longer we could hang around. Just sayin'.....(typin' actually)
