Around this time each season, the Pirates are usually concentrating on next year's draft picks, but they're in first place in the NL Central. Are they legit contenders?
Cecil 54: "Bucs are in first place in the NL Central. Man, that never gets old. Let's keep it going this year Pirates!"
ramtuff500: "Had on a Pirates T shirt in Charlotte yesterday and heard Go Bucs a few times. 19 years. I've always felt like if they get 10 over .500 the streak will end. Not sure why but every year at least one Pittsburgh team makes a run at something."
cinciredsforlife08: "Gotta hand it to the buccos... not a lot of people giving them a chance, but they are producing. good job bucs. Reds and cards are still on ya though!"
jayetee: "Congrats, Buccos fans, but don't get content, Cards will be coming for ya'."
JackHandy1: "Can't help but root for the Pirates. As a St. Louis fan, I still want the Cardinals to win. But maybe they both will make the playoffs. It's been far too long since the Pirates have been in the postseason. They are definitely my second favorite team this year."
CardsFanInChiTown: "Have to give props to the Pirates. They are legit this year. "
