Even though the Pittsburgh Pirates are well out of contention there are still things they should be looking to accomplish in September

The month of September is upon us which means the 2021 Major League Baseball season is starting to wind down. For the Pittsburgh Pirates this means finishing out a season that has not gone as anyone had hoped.

While the Pittsburgh Pirates were expected to be among the worst teams in baseball this season things have gone even worse than anticipated this season. The Pirates enter play on the first day of September with a record of 48-84 which is the second worst record in the National League and fourth worst in all of baseball.

In addition to their poor record the Pittsburgh Pirates have had plenty of poor individual results as well. The team has been among the worst offensive teams in the National League which led to hitting coach Rick Eckstein being fired on Monday. The club’s pitching staff has also been among the worst in the NL.

Despite all of this the Pittsburgh Baseball Club can still have goals as they prepare to embark on the final month of the season. While they may be completely out of postseason contention there are still things that they can play for.
