Sometime yesterday, probably around 9:30 in the evening, the Pittsburgh Pirates climbed out of last place in the Central Division.
Improved the Pirates’ record to 56-83, a half-game better than the Cubs’ 55-83.
Whoa! Wait. WHAT?
The Pirates are no longer in last place? This is totally throwing off my sense of normalcy.
Can you believe it? Apparently the PG can’t either, as this morning’s final edition still has the Pirates in last place:
“I guess it’s a small victory, if anything,” Bay said. “We’re not where we want to be. You want to finish strong, so it’s a little something to go on. But it’s definitely not something you want to throw a party about.”
What. Ever! Screw that shit. We aren’t in last place. Party!
