Sounds like he has pitched way too much.

I wasn't watching. Is that accurate? How did he get ejected for that?

So 2 hours before gametime and Hurdle mentions that JMac has a sore shoulder and is going on the DL. Also, Martin scratched from the lineup.

Jeanshorts to start tonight.
Harrison called up from Indy

Liriano is back in Pittsburgh but probably won't be called up until the weekend.

So basically Jeanshorts is pitching for his MLB life tonight- pitch well and Mazzaro or Morris goes; pitch poorly and he's gone.

Jeanshorts issues a walk to Jason Bay. Someday, I pray that this team will learn to stop walking opposing hitters.

Snider has been a pleasant surprise, and Cutch is slowly finding his bat

Through 3 innings, Gomez seems to want to stay with the Bucs. Still time for it to all go to hell on him.

Alvarez with two strikeouts tonight, average down to .175. How long do you let this go on?

What's the alternative? Inge. Uh, no. El Blimpo knows this, so he won't care until he has to worry about his job again. Then he'll focus for a few days and Hurdle will never dream of benching him again. This will happen until 2016 when he puts it together for the Cardinals.

Jeanshorts looking decent this year, probably need to keep him around for now

3K for El Blimpo against Aaron Harang, who may be clinically dead.

4-1 Bucs. Garrett Jones goes yard for insurance. He's the anti-MAF.

Raise it but don't give in to the temptation to hang yourself up there with it. Game 5 will be here before you know it and the Pens will get to their game.

Raise it before Canaan and his clique claim to be Pirates fans since they still have a winning record.

Marmol gets out of a jam in the eighth with a caught-stealing third out. 2-1 Cubs.

I was Marmol watching. Pleasantly surprised he didn't self-immolate. I guess I got carried away.
