You know things are going your way when Jones hits a 2-out, 2-rbi double off a lefty :lol:

Let me be the first to say it ... Raise the Jolly Roger!

Buccos stomp the hapless Cubs, 9-1. Rumor is that Aramis Ramirez has asked to be traded to the Pirates to get away from the losing and to play for a winner. :D

I not only want to see the Bucs win big to earn a win but also to improve the RS/RA ratio so that the "real win" is worth something more than 1.0 "expected wins."


Excellent win. Truly excellent.

And, perhaps most importantly, it added 1.52 to the Bucs' expected wins total which might actually mean that some of the stat-head doubters will start believing as well!!!! :lol:

d'Arnaud strikes out with runners on first and second no outs. We need Cedeno back ASAP because he definitely gets that bunt down or at least puts it into play. Luckily Walker doubled right after that.

Now there's a post I didn't think I'd ever read out of this group. My how times change our perspective. Not saying that I disagree but that's a WOW.

Long time no posting here but isn't this great!

47-43 into All-Star break, only 35 wins away from a winning season with 72 games to play.

Good to have you back, Eric, and it is great that the Pirates are winning, and that their winning is kindling renewed interest among long-time fans who had lost the faith.

43 wins from likely winning the NL Central. Honestly, that is what I am looking at. I believe that 90 victories wins the NL Central and puts the Pirates in the playoffs.
