Take a quick breather and enjoy this day off. Things are about to get serious real fast. Twenty-six games remaining and the Pirates are only 1.5 games out of a playoff spot. This weekend the Pirates play the terrible Cubs, the Cardinals play the red hot Brewers (who are trying to climb back into the playoff race) and the Dodgers play the division leading Giants. So this is my way of saying there is a chance that with a good showing this weekend the Pirates could find themselves in a pretty good position with 23 games to play.
So just take a sigh of relief and rest today. For tomorrow the games get even bigger.
