Aaaaaand fatty Alvarez continues to be worthless


I keep thinking Petey going to break out and go on a torrid streak....losing my patience waiting for that to happen, next inning Martin, Barmes, Pitcher....might as well hang a 0 on that half inning.

He'll break out after the Pirates release him. Then he'll get into shape, actually work out in the offseason, and hit 50 bombs for the Cards. I've accepted this fate. He doesn't care because his spot is safe and Hurdle won't dare do anything to upset the delicate little flower.

You're probably right. It's just sad we can't really put anybody at third that will be any better.....Rather just take my lumps with Petey and hope he goes on that streak, then watch JHay, Inge, or whoever at third.

I turned to watch the Leafs Devils game.....did the Cardinals really not score last inning?

With any amount of luck Inge will hit decently when he gets called up and El Blimpo will be shamed into trying hard. If Inge struggles? Forget about getting anything from Pedro this year because he'll know that no one will take his job.

The rare Clint Barmes walk preceded by the almost as rare Russell Martin hit.

Good work by Wilson to get the bunt down, even though Hurdle probably should have PH for him.

Ugh, too bad we could have cut this down to four, when Hopeless and Barajas get on with no outs, you have to score.

Pretty much a given that Blimpzilla will hit into the GIDP, isn't it?

Can't see either one going anywhere this year so we've got to hope they improve through some sort of magic.

Only thing we can hope for is a healthy Inge to push Alvarez and more starts for the fort.

I saw Inge in the Spring. I don't see him pushing anybody. If Alvarez continues to hit below .100 he could replace him but I don't see him as much of an improvement.

It's crazy how many chances the Pirates have had to get back into the game tonight. The Cards bullpen is a flaming bucket of poop.

And McCutchen disappoints the dozens that stuck around. What a bad call on the first strike call.
