2 out of 3 at Wrigley. Crushed the Cubbies today by the score of 14-3. Took out Arrieta yesterday and Lester today. Pretty good way to go into the break. Nova and Taillon a good one-two punch in the starting rotation. Hopefully Marte will be back without the dumbfuckedness. Hope springs eternal.

We had 'em all the way!

Dude...say Milwaukee goes .500 the rest of the way.

The Pirates would have to go 55-22 to overtake them. That ain't happening.

Even if Milwaukee went 30-42 the rest of the way, the Pirates would have to go 49-28.

Division is NOT "within reach" if the Pirates get their shit together, unless Milwaukee tanks, and Chicago and St. Louis fail to do anything other than keep muddling along.


holy shit that's bad math. But you explain it so confidently and matter of factly. You must be a very well versed bullshitter

Would like to add my thanks to other people's, JL58, for keeping the game threads going. They are always read and appreciated by me and others, even when the comments run dry.

No- just my level of confidence remains undiminished from my younger days, even as my cognitive functions have deteriorated.

Already had a mea culpa a few posts back.

Thank you, gentlemen. Much appreciated! As I said in another thread, the Bucs are my first sports love going back to when Clemente, Alou and Stargell were in the outfield at Forbes. I will definitely bitch, too, as you all know too well, but I will never completely turn my back on the Pirates either. Here's to a great second half of baseball. Beat 'em Bucs! Or #GONUTTINGSWALLET! Whatever you prefer.
