Question the Pirates' strength of schedule all you want, but they swept the Cardinals and earned a series win at Wrigley Field. There's also nothing wrong with beating sub-.500 teams. Their inability to do so contributed to back-to-back non-playoff seasons.

Now, their depth will be tested with Starling Marte injured, and the starting pitching must improve since teams within the division are starting to perform better. So, will the Pirates buy or sell at the deadline? Can Jung Ho Kang really help this season? There's plenty to discuss.
