Yee-Haw!!! The Pittsburgh Pirates are back in first place in their division!!!
The best team in the Major Leagues? Yes, according to the comment in the rankings of the teams on ESPN:
"Tied for first place in the NL Central, the Pirates have the best record in baseball since May 25 at 12-3."
Okay, that is a limited frame of reference and they are listed at #17, but we Pirates fans have to celebrate while we can, according to Michael Wilbon on PTI. Last year, the Pirates were in first near the All-Star break, only to slide down the list as the season wore on. Since their offense is about the worst in the Majors, I expect history to repeat itself.
But I wanted to celebrate while there was something to celebrate about.
