Pirates flirting with .500 are always dangerous



The Pittsburgh Pirates are starting a 10 game homestand that begins tonight with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Pirates seem to be playing good baseball, in May the Pirates won 5 series in which they played against various teams.

The Pirates have been playing the role of spoiler for many years now. The team has had some good players, but they've been traded all away every season.

Check out the 'Raise The Jolly Roger' Pirates blog here.

Here's how the Pirates have done from now going back to 1997:
