The Pirates In First Place: Biggest Improvements This Season (So Far)

Pirate fans’ last memory of the post-season.

It’s great to see the Pirates in first place.  Although I’m not a Pirates fan, I would love to see them in the playoffs; Pittsburgh is a great baseball city with a rich tradition.  As of July 16, Pittsburgh has the biggest improvement this season.  An upcoming post will take this article a step further; it will look into the history of teams with similar improvements to see how often this type of improvement has led to a long-term change in the franchise’s fortunes.  The table below shows how much each team improved or worsened so far this season.  The table contains their record over the previous three years, their current record, and the difference.
