Since their last meeting, the Pirates and Reds have gone in two complete different directions. The Pirates have lost 10 of their last 14 ballgames. Most recently losing three in a row to the Dodgers by the combined score of 31-8. Meanwhile, the Reds are winners of 13 of their last 17 games.
The battle for 4th place in the N.L. Central is on! It's the MEGA BOWWWWLLLLLL!
I'm nothing if not honest. I haven't watched a single Pirates game in two weeks. I was away on vacation and didn't need the aggravation of watching this terrible baseball team to ruin my mojo. But now, there's a reason to watch. Will the Reds catch the Pirates?
It ain't exactly Bengals/Steelers, but I don't want to see the Redlegs get up off the mat. Pirates season now has new meaning! Can they hold of their N.L. Central rivals? Or will the Buccos only further embarrass themselves?
