Since before Sid meant The Kid

What is this mythical thing called a Pennant Race?  If Google couldn't explain it to me, I might not know.

Same graph below, but with last night's win the Pirates are now, and only now, ahead in the standings compared to any point this late in the season over the last 19 years.  The last time they were further ahead was the last season they went to the playoffs only to be kept from the World Series by..  well..  hey, he isn't a relation ok. Homophones not withstanding, I have closer family connections to Jim Leyland.

Anyway, the USAToday is already talking a Rust Belt series.

As a Braves fan enduring the singular might of Dale in the eighties and rewarded with a solid decade of winning, I'm enjoying the Pirates reconstruction from within.

Why would we think you're related to Stan Belinda or Barry Bonds?
