Prediction: Pirates take NL wildcard

Why am I predicting that the Pirates will take the NL wildcard?  Because I’ve studied and compared the two teams carefully?  Because I’ve considered all the pitcher-batter matchups, factored in injuries, fatigue, home field advantage, etc.?

Nope.  I’m predicting this because it’s just too soon for the Pirates’ incredible season to end.  Baseball has been getting the pennant race drama right this year, so the Pirates must win.  Simple as that.

And perhaps logically flawed as that, too …
