So thankful to at least see them win last night, the game went in their favor basically all night. I agree with you for the most part, I just hope they get the motivation they need to at least keep doing average.. but their schedule doesn't look too promising, haha. I have faith in that team after this season but I'm feeling like you are.
At this point, we just need to be excited the Pirates were relevant at least for a little while. It showed that we have some young up and coming talent, but we definitely need to pick up a couple back-end rotation starting pitchers, as well as stock up the pen. Not to mention, some more big right-handed bats. At least Ludwick has been contributing, and finally Garrett Jones is looking like his former-2009 self. Neil Walker is solid, but has been struggling with runners in scoring position, and McCutchen needs to get out of his slump (he had two hits last night though). Tabata should re-join the team within a couple weeks, and Alex Presley is getting healthy. Ross Ohlendorf is doing well in rehab as well.
This season may be over potentially, but we have some bright spots.
