What is the goal for the Pittsburgh Pirates 2013 season?

What do you expect of the bucs this year? What should be their goal? For the past 2 seasons the pirates have played playoff type baseball up until the all-star break. Last season they looked like a for sure playoff team and then had the most historic collapse in MLB history. At this point in the season right now the Pirates are 46-30, 16 games above .500; note they where 16 games above .500 last year when they began to falter. But as the bucs keep winning I can't help but get excited, I can't help but say this is the year, I can't help but say they're legit. In the back of my mind I can't help but to think this happened last year as well. The Pirates ripped my heart out and threw it in the Allegheny river. So this brings me to my next question. In order to have a winning record the Pirates only have to go 36-50, to make the playoffs I'm gonna guess they at least have to win 90 games and in order to do that they would have to go 44-42. What's the goal for the Pirates this year? Do we assumed they're gonna falter so therefore the goal is to be over .500? Is the goal to end the streak? Is the goal to win the division? Is the goal to win the wildcard? Is the goal to make the World Series? What is the goal of the Pittsburgh Pirates?
