Mods if you can poll this that'd be excellent.
Flashback to the All Star Break, the Pirates are in first place in the NL Central and quite frankly I was scared they might be the best NL Central team.
Today, the Pirates are barely over .500 and as of right now are in 4th place behind the Brewers.
While I feel bad for Pirates fans, I also find their total collapse kinda funny. Though I'd rather see them in instead of the Cards, at this point I'd love to the Brew Crew take the final WC from St. Louis.
So where do YOU think the Pirates will finish.
1. Over .500 and in the postseason
2. Over .500 but miss the postseason
3. Under .500 and in the postseason
4. Under .500 but miss the postseason
5. 81-81 and in the postseason
6. 81-81 but miss the postseason
Based on nothing other than a guess, I think they will barely finish above .500 but miss the playoffs.
And I would bet at the beginning of the year Pirates fans would've gladly taken this. But honestly at the ASB I thought there was almost no way Pittsburgh would have another losing season.
What do you guys think?
