I'll give you one and two. Three.... While interesting, this just might be the version of the Pirates capable of doing so. Four..While the Redsa have post season experience, it's quite disappointing. Swept in 2010, and lost three straigh in 2012.
That being said I'm still the eternal optimist.... Tomorrow will be the Reds day.
