It wasn't your team's year
But you still love baseball
So you're looking at the teams in contention, trying to decide who your team is going to be moving forward
And you've decided on the Pittsburgh Pirates
Well, here are the things you need to know as a newly minted member of the Bucco Bandwagon
1. The Pirates have won 5 World Series Championships
2. They recently broke a 20 losing season streak
3. Andrew McCutchen should be the National League MVP this year

It’s short for Buccaneers. We chant “Let’s Go Bucs” at the games
7. The Pirates, Cardinals and Reds are in a three way race for the NL Central
8. You need to have a favorite Pierogi
