The Alvarez

5's a reach even for Pedro, still can't complain about Marte's play this year. This team needs some arms and better use of the ones it has.

Yeah I couldn't believe it either.

To answer Mr. Colby, yeah this loss is frustrating because it didn't have to be this way. If Hurdle can just realize what he can realistically get out of his RPs and put his best RPs in no matter what we probaly win this game.

Oh well, on to tommorrow.

The "they need to keep Melancon's innings down" excuse would carry more weight with me if Hurdle didn't feel like he had to use Melancon to close out the Reds game when they were up by 4 or go to him last night up 3. Hurdle tied his hands behind his back with bad decisions in past games.

Tonight's is the Pirates best chance at winning a game this series so Hurdle yanks his top hitter out of the lineup. I don't care if Marte went 0-10 with 10K's yesterday I think he should stay in for awhile...dude just had a 10 game hitting streak.

Eh, Marte needs a game off eventually. And really last night was their best chance against Teheran.

Wandy with a 1-2-3 inning. Locke, Sanchez and JWalk are baffled at this concept and believe it to be the work of an evil sorcerer.

Cutch and Jones smoke balls right at infielders. And the Pirates would be leading 1-0 if not for bad umpiring. Gonna be one of those nights.

El Blimpo must murdered a ball out of the park. Didn't make the river but it was Stargell-esque.

From Spahn and Sain and pray for rain to Wandy and AJ and pray for a no-play day.

It appears the Pirates have 2 good starters, half of a good lineup, and 2 good relievers. How far can a team go with that? Can you get to 82 wins with that?

Hurdle can't use Melancon in a tie game. He will use him when leading by 6. I swear to God he is the dumbest human being on the planet.

7 innings, one hit, and 82 pitches against that lineup? Outstanding work tonight by Wandy. Outstanding.
