They said it couldn't be done. It's been over 20 years since the Pirates even sniffed a playoff game or even had a winning record. But The Marte has helped change all that. He is the one.
Well one of many who have helped Pittsburgh into first place in the NL Central. Currently they have 69 wins to 44 losses and sit 3 games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals. With 49 games left all they have to do is go 13-36 to insure a winning season. But these Buccos have much bigger plans. If they only go .500 ball then they win 94 games and would probably win the division and most certainly will be guaranteed a Wild Card spot. Are they a World Series contender? I have a hard time believing it. But then again I didn't think Starling Marte could pull a Neo. So anything is possible.
