We interrupt the regularly scheduled Blob folderol for a moment of pure fanboy agony.
Just checked out the National League standings for the first time in a bit.
Noticed that my Pittsburgh Pirates -- who were once 15 or so games over .500 and seemed well on their way to their first winning season in two decades -- are 2-8 in their last 10 games and dead even on the season at 74-74. And they're now fourth in the NL Central, after being in contention for the NL wild card deep into August.
All together now: Arrrrrgghh!
