I may cry if Grilli blows the game to Cosart and Mesoraco.

How many 1-2-3 9th innings has Grilli had? Any?

I think he actually had one with three Ks IIRC.

He has a 0.87 WHIP this year. His last 1-2-3 inning was...the last time he pitched for the Pirates, last Saturday. So long ago.

Honestly wasn't sure. He couldn't have had many this year. Always seems like he's closing games out with men on base.

Good win. I knew Locke\bullpen would do it. But if we have to depend on Mercer and Tabata to drive in runs, it would not bode well for the future.

The Pirates got rid of him and brought in Hopeless because Hurdle couldn't stand Cedeno. I don't see it happening.

Reds announcer and Fox play by play man Thom Brennaman got caught with a hot mic Sunday afternoon with Cincy hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates. After Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke walked Reds SS Zack Cozart, you can hear Brennaman whisper "this guy sucks" into the microphone.

Against the Tigers he blew away Hunter, Cabrera, Fielder on three K's, pretty sure it was a one run game too. Probably his best outing of the season. He has let more men reach base lately but he's still being efficient and it's nowhere near as bad as when Hanrahan would do it.

I missed it because I almost always mute that tool. All he can talk about is the Pirates pitchers hit the Reds, the Reds bullpen is better than the Pirates, and Mesoraco is from Pennsylvania.

That was my thought as well, and would be awesome if we heard Greg Brown mutter something similar about I--e.

18 out of his 44 appearances have been 1-2-3 innings, 15 of those were saves.

Not sure if you're kidding but in the context I've heard it sure sounded like he was talking about Locke. Those apologizing for him are saying he was talking about Corky.

Why the hell would he have been talking about Locke? He's a pro, i'm sure he's aware of what Locke has been doing this season.

Its just Pittsburgh sports against the world baby.

I thought the name "Brennaman" sounded familiar. Son of Marty Brennaman. So much nepotism is the baseball broadcasting world.
