Sorry to take a detour from law related news, but I think we need to acknowledge the giant elephant in the room: the perennially bottom-dwelling, twenty-one-year-straight losing record holding, and overall loveable Pittsburgh Pirates are currently in possession of the best league in all of the National League. You read that correctly, they are currently first in their division with the best record in the National League and are only a game behind the Boston Red Sox for the best record in all of Major League Baseball.
How did this happen? Who is responsible for the Pirates sudden success? Why have they not yet collapsed? It’s simple: they developed a plan to improve their team, worked toward that plan while modifying it to manage surprises or bumps in the road, and stuck with it even when others thought they were crazy. It’s a lot like what we do when we litigate, in that we have to develop a strategy, adapt to changes, and generally prepare for what our opponents will throw at us.
As odd as it seems, the Pittsburgh Pirates are in fact one of the best teams in Major League Baseball, and congrats to them. It’s safe to say the whole city, our firm included, is behind them, and we are all rooting them along in their push for not only their first winning season in twenty one years but a potential playoff berth.
