Could use something huge to satisfy the Cult of Mercer, here.

Oh my God Mercer. Heater down the middle and you just look at it. WITH THE PITCHER ON DECK.

Asking for three consecutive batters to reach base safely is too much for this club most nights.

Wasn't down the middle. It was inside, and I'm sure it wasn't even a strike with this ump. Do agree you gotta protect there though.

The ump's strike zone has been terrible tonight, admittedly.

As I said. That wasn't even a strike that Mercer got called out on.

Or just keep serving up tasty fastballs right down the middle like you have all year Cole. That works too.

Either MLB.com's pitch tracker is wildly erratic or this ump is calling balls and strikes at random.

From what my tired eyes can tell, I'm looking at three slightly different strike zones: Root's, MLB Gameday's, and the ump Iassogna's.

Could use something huge from Cole to support his cause, here.

Tabata thought a 3 pitch strikeout would help somehow I guess.

Our new additions have combined for 3 of the Pirates' 5 hits tonight. In case you needed reminded how horrible our lineup is.

Tough to make chicken salad...

May have used up the offense in the last two nights. Ah well, still time left and Gallardo has thrown a few pitches.

I agree with Dejan Kovacevic that the Pirates Charities sign is just a tad too imposing.

I would have loved for that line drive to hit Ramirez right in the face.
