Pirates!

The Pirates swept the Giants in their recently-concluded 3-game series.  Obviously, this is good to see under any circumstances.  However, I was particularly happy to see the Pirates win a couple of close games.  It seems to me that when they win, they blow out their opponents but if the game is close, then they lose.  However, yesterday, they won 3-1 and today they won 5-4 after trailing 4-2.

An interesting tidbit that I learned yesterday is that (as of yesterday) the Pirates’ starting outfielders (Jason Bay, Nate McLouth, and Xavier Nady) collectively have 20 home runs and 73 RBI, which is better than any trio of outfielders in all of baseball.  Nice job, guys.  Of course, I’ve said before that Nate McLouth and Xavier Nady are awesome, but I was impressed at how well the Pirates outfield compares with the rest of the league.
