SOUTH HILLS – So that felt like a must-win game and important comeback last night for the Pirates, right? This weekend feels like it could be a time when it’s decided whether the Pirates remain in the division race or not.
In this space and elsewhere, the Pirates’ challenges that have led to this second-half slide have been addressed. But if you’re looking for reasons to believe why the Pirates can perhaps rebound again and finish as a 90-winish team and in the postseason picture, well, that hasn’t been discussed as much.
If you squint hard enough, there have been some silver linings lining these dark clouds hanging over the club.
