The Pirates fate is in their own hands now. We are 61-46, a .570 winning percentage, 15 games over .500. In the NL Central, we are 4.5 behind the Reds and play them 3 more at home and 3 more in Cincinnatti.
In the Wild Card, we hold the second spot, .5 game behind Atlanta for the top spot, who we play 3 times at home to end the season.
We lead the Cardinals by 2.5 and play them 3 times on the road and 3 times at home.
We lead the Dodgers by 3 and play them 4 times at home this homestand.
We lead the Diamondbacks by 6.5 and play them 3 times at home this homestand, starting tonight. We could bury them here with a sweep.
We lead the Fets by 9 and play them 4 times on the road.
We lead the Beer Sluts by 13 and play them 6 times at home and 3 times on the road.
I don't see the Phillees or Marlins pulling back into this, but stranger things have happened.
We control our own destiny. Just win, Baby!
