The Pirates are 12–7 over their last 19 games, showing a little spark down the stretch of what’s been a disappointing season.
There was a stretch of time when I truly believed Pittsburgh was going to be a player in the NL Central this season. The pitching fell apart, though, and the offense wasn’t far behind.
Brian Reynolds still has an outside shot to win the NL’s batting title as a rookie and he isn’t getting any fanfare in the Rookie of the Year vote. He’ll certainly finish squarely in the top five or six.
Kevin Newman doesn’t walk a ton or hit for power but he’s still up over .310 despite cooling off significantly in the second half.
Josh Bell has had a rough go of it since the All-Star Break, too, but he’s still got 37 homers, 118 RBIs, and an OPS+ over 140.
Between losing three in a row to Milwaukee over the weekend and then another two out of three to the Padres with a fourth game scheduled for Thursday, the Cubs’ lead in the wild card is gone.
Chicago is tied with Milwaukee and just two games ahead of the Mets for that final playoff spot. The good news is that the Cubs are about to begin a long home stand that will take them all the way until the 24th of September, when they go to Pittsburgh and then to St. Louis.
I don’t think any of those teams are going to spoil the party the Nationals, Braves, Cardinals, and Dodgers have planned. Those are the four best teams in the NL and they’ll be there at the end.
