Good morning. It is August 15th, 2013.
With last night's win, the Pirates are 71-48. Since 1992, the Pirates failed to win 71 games in the following seasons*: 1994, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.
There are no new additions to the list today, and so there are no new memories of past seasons gone by to share. Maybe after the four-game losing streak that the Pirates just snapped, that's for the best.
*The strike shortened 1994 and 1995. The '94 Pirates were on pace for 75 wins, but the '95 Pirates were terrible and only on pace for 65 wins.
