Winning is still fun

The Pittsburgh Pirates have not done much winning of late. So, some fans may have forgotten if winning was indeed still fun or not. Well, it definitely is.

Let’s break this series down, shall we?

Monday night’s win = fun

Tuesday night’s win = fun

Wednesday night’s loss = not fun

Not only did the Pirates pick up a series victory in Anaheim, the offense exploded in the two victories. The Pirates scored 10 runs on both Monday and Tuesday night. For most of the season the Pirate offense, which is averaging 4.7 runs per game, has been a joy to watch. This continued against the Angels.

Most fun of all, the team won some baseball games. Baseball is the greatest sport in the world. The game is even better when your favorite team wins.
