Lucky? Not us

Lest you think that the health of the pitching staff this season has been one area in which the Pirates have been blessed by good fortune, our esteemed field general would like you to know the truth:
The Pirates are the lone team in the National League to use only five starters all season, a run that will end tomorrow when Wells rejoins the rotation. The Seattle Mariners are the only team in the American League to have used five. "We've done a terrific job in that regard," Tracy said. "A lot of that has to do with the way we've handled these pitchers."
Oh, and the nice weather we have had this season, with relatively few rainouts? We did that too.

I guess when you are 26-44, in last place, and 17 games out of first place two and a half months into the season, there's not a lot you can take credit for.
