At the All-Star break

Just for reference, this is the Pirates chart at the All-Star break, a bit more than half way through the season.  Some suggest I am a pessimist.  Consider last year's peak remarkably mirrors this season thus far.  Consider also that last year the Pirates went 34-47 over the 2nd half of the season.  Of course, even if they repeat a similar dive, they are still going to finish above .500 this year.  So yay!

Again, your final point explains why this chart is misleading. Pirates could go .500 the rest of the season, essentially remaining flat but that would very likely result in a "dive" on the chart if the Cards keep winning. It's totally relative to their divisional competition.

If the Pirates finish above .500, that would be more than enough for me. I have low expectations.
