With 68 games left to play in the season, the Pittsburgh Pirates sit atop the NL Central. Their record of 50-44 is better than the Brewers, the Cardinals and the Reds. All three of those teams are veteran clubs that were expected to blow out the young Pittsburgh squad. The Pirates have proved all the doubters wrong and grabbed first place.
Wow, that feels great to say.
With the trade deadline approaching, the Pirates should be looking to add a piece or two to make sure that they can stay at the top. What positions are the biggest needs for Pittsburgh?
