Regular readers may recall that I have a friendly wager with one of my old Pittsburgh freinds: Head to head, Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals. At the time we made the wager (just before the all star game) the teams were about 1 game apart. Now? Not so much.
After tonight's games:
STL 79 - 68 0.537 --
PIT 67 - 80 0.456 12
Pirates are 12 games back with 15 games left. The Cardinal's magic number for clinching (the bet) is 4.
Looks like I'm going to win, but it is still disappointing. Pirates out out of contention, and The Cardinals have only the slimmest of margins. I was hoping the 2 teams would be fighting it out for the division crown.
