“In 1992 the Pirates ruled the ocean blue”. ” But for the next 20 seasons they walked the plank”. What I mean is the Pittsburgh Pirates clinched their first .500 season in 20 seasons last night in their 81st win vs the Brewers. CF Andrew McCuttchen, who homered in the fist inning of this game has really been a leader and helped this struggling franchise over these tough years. This year everybody came together and worked hard to break that losing streak.

Are the Pirates no doubt playoff contenders? If yes how far can they go?
