It seems hard to believe, but the Pirates haven’t managed to string together five wins at any point yet in the 2014 season.

Pittsburgh Pirates: Josh Harrison is the true MVP

Photo credit: Post GazetteIt seems like the obvious choice for the Pittsburgh Pirate’s MVP would be center-fielder Andrew McCutchen, but Josh Harrison has been just as important to the club, if not more.
