Screw the general baseball thread, this deserves its own for history...Pirates!

    And the standings link to prove it. Gaze at it, marvel at it, but don't risk the link. Copy the page as it is, Pirates fans.

    I'm not one, but I'm certainly not going to get in the way of your joy.

    Actually, I have goose bumps. It's like watching an eclipse.

    Hope they win the Central.

    For those few remaining Pirates fans.

    As a bona fide, die hard St. Louis Cardinals fan, even I can appreciate this. The Pittsburgh Pirates are in FIRST place in July. So much for baseball season not meaning anything. Even if the Pirates fade to third or fourth (I figure Chicago and Houston have the bottom two spots locked up) the fact they were in first and are above .500 is huge news.

    I still want St. Louis to WIN, of course... :)

    I figured there were at least two or three people on this board who would get that one.

    The Pirates lost me a long time ago, but I was in the stands for arguably the highlight of that season -- the combined no-hitter by Cordova and Rincon.

    [blue]Wow, but how can they ever compete after trading away all their good players like Xavier Nady, Nate McLouth and Zach Duke![/blue]

    How many games would the Toronto Blue Jays win in the NL Central anyway? There are some iffy teams in that division. It doesn't matter once you hit the postseason, as the Giants of 2010 can attest, but I'd kind of like to see them switch back to two divisions for each league.

    Being a Red Sox fan is boring now.
    I'll jump on the Bucs' bandwagon.
