Even in the loss column - only 1 game out of FIRST place

I really just wanted to write that and see it after so many painful years, near the All Star break, and only 1 game out of first place.  While I certainly didn't see this coming, whether it has been just over achieving or not, it sure beats the opposite of under achieving.  Will the starters cool off the second half or will the bullpen run out of gas, I don't know, but I can say great job to the front office for sticking with the plan, to Hurdle for choosing Pittsburgh, for the upbeat in Pirate fever, and to Charlie who always keeps up living in reality.  Here's to the team of 2011 who have shown that Pittsburgh is the City of Champions and it will be sooner than later that baseball in Pittsburgh will be once again back where it belongs, winning divisions and  playing in World Series.  Pops and The Great One have to be smiling just a little bit today.
