Pirates, you are officially at the halfway mark of your season. You are currently one game over .500.
Do it again.
I’m not saying go win the Division (although the inconsistent Cardinals and Brewers are only 2 games ahead of Pittsburgh in the loss column.)
I’m not saying go win 90 games.
I’m saying finish with a winning record and people stop pointing out that you haven’t had a winning season since 1992.
Finish with a winning record and give Pittsburgh fans real hope that better days are around the corner.
It’s not asking alot.
It’s an 82-80 record.
It’s the first step towards a new culture on the team.
Just repeat a slightly better than mediocre first half of the season.
