I can hardly believe this is the same team that has been kicking me square in the balls for 20 years. This time last season fans wanted the whole front office run out of town for failing to make any deals at the deadline, and now they've seemingly found the same magic potion Ray Shero uses to get any player they set their minds to.

Adding two more guys with double digit HR totals to a roster where there's already 5-6 guys at that mark? Finally getting an every day 1B with power? My head's spinning trying to make sense of it all. That doesn't even cover having a ridiculous outfield with all 3 starters making circus catches on a regular basis.

Oh yeah, Jason Grilli is close to returning soon to a bullpen that didn't even skip a beat when the NL saves leader went down.

I'm going to the finale against the Cards, and I can't wait. The atmosphere is amazing at PNC, and getting to see meaningful baseball in September is just fantastic.
