I'm pretty sure I hate the Reds more than I hate Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist.

I'm sure that was part of some managerial strategy that fans like us will never understand.

Now that's hate.

But yeah this sweep feels very good, not because the team won but because we swept a team that a can't stand more than the Yankees and even the Cardinals. Can't stand Phillips, can't stand their fans and I can't stand their arrogant announcer Marty Brennaman so i'm very happy right how.

Brennaman makes Pierre look and sound good.

And this is why I love baseball. I hate the Reds, but dislike Ryan Braun and the Brewers even more. RTJR

He took one to left the other night, has drawn some walks. I see one of his ridiculous weeks starting tomorrow.

Well, Blimpo does feast on Cardinal pitching, so they come to town just in time.

Sorry if this has been mentioned (just started watching the game and am avoided spoilers), but those hats are not the correct color to match those uniforms. They are way too yellow. If you are going to go retro, do it properly. :roll:

After today's 10 spot the Pirates are now tied for only the 6th fewest runs in baseball. They have twice as many runs as last-place Miami. Their team BA is over .200 but still the worst in baseball. Only the 29th worst OPS ahead of Miami though, so there's hope on the horizon.

The K:BBratio is looking a little better than last year, the total for last year was a little over 3K:1BB, they're under two so far and that's after the offensive no show in the first 6 games. My impression of the team was that the offense would be better than last year, but the pitching a good bit worse.

I think i'm most pleased with the strength of the grilli/melancon late inning combo. Especially seeing Hanrahan struggle in boston, i'd be concerned if i were them, hanrahan's MO has always seemed to me to be to start the season great and then get worn out cause of fatness in the summer.

Exceeding (my) Expectations - Marte, Melancon, Burnett, *Wandy (if he makes his next start), Jones, Grilli
Meeting (my) Expectations - McCutchen, Alvarez, McDonald, Sanchez, Martin, Tabata/Snider, Locke
Below Expectations - Walker, Sanchez, Barmes, Hughes

Presley recalled. Phil Irwin sent back down. This should mean that Wandy is good to go for Friday against the Braves. I thought they would activate Inge from his DL stint.

Hard to believe but McDonald is in trouble in the first inning.

1-0 Cards. Should be worse, but St. Louis decided to run the bases like Little Leaguers.
