I haven't found one but I'm with you on that. These guys are bozos.

2nd and 3rd, 1 out, Morneau up. Let's see if Hurdle's gambit works out.

Good call to let Morneau play against a lefty, Clint. And is there a reason why the runner on 3rd always runs on contact now even when he's dead to rights?

Byrd ties the game. Would be 2-1 if Mercer weren't running on contact the play before but such is life.

Russell Martin is coming dangerously close to reaching Rod Barajas levels of "automatic out" to me.

Thankfully, Martin's 98% "caught stealing" rate is more than enough for me to deal with his slumping. I shudder at Baraja's defense.

True, but unlike Barahahahahahahas:

1) He's a great defensive catcher - close to Pirate record percent thrown out
2) He handles the pitchers well
3) I believe he could snap out his funk at the plate - maybe that shot is the start of the turn

Yeah, exactly. His defensive acumen (unlike Clint "defensive specialist" Barmes) makes his .250ish average much more worthy.
