Mueller: Best Thing So Far About the Pirates? They’re Competitive

Sitting one game under .500 about 1/5 of the way through the season is nothing to shout about for most baseball teams. Heck, given that the Pirates have flirted with .500 later than this in some of their recent seasons, it isn’t really anything for fans to crow about.
