Justin Wilson, trying to give two runs back so he can be eligible for his 5th win.

Good thing Hurdle will only use Melancon in the 8th. No reason why you'd want to use your best reliever against the heart of Chicago's lineup here.

The announcers talked about how easy Grilli makes saves in the seventh inning.

5-4 Bucs. Grilli just has to pitch to Rizzo with the game on the line.

I can safely say that Grilli will be unavailable tomorrow.

It's unreal. I had to answer the door when he was coming up to bat in the 1st and I fully expected to come back and see 2 or 3-run damage. Yeah, well.

Raise it before the grilled cheese burns to carbon.

Now raise it before Grilli gives up another run.

they should give him a couple days off, let Watson make us nervous the next few games if we need a closer.

No doubt about it. Grilli is likely unavailable tomorrow so the Melancon/Grilli combo will instead be the Melancon/MATW axis.

Nate McLouth with the walk off HR tonight. Just thinking back to last year and him sucking like the biggest suck ever. Then moves on and becomes a highly productive member of the Orioles.

Bucs win so I'm going to complain about something that's irrelevant. I would be happy if Brown never used "Clear the deck cannon ball commin" again. It either doesn't have the staying power he thinks it does, or he's just run it into the ground. Then again if I'm tired of it, that means the Bucs have hit a lot of big homers. I don't know what to believe anymore

Last night with the bases loaded Hurdle sent up Snider to pinch hit for Barmes and Snider hit the game-winning slam. I'm a little worried at the implications of Hurdle making a strategic move that actually worked. Either it's a sign of the apocalypse, or Hurdle will now imagine himself to be a tactical genius like LaRussa. This bears monitoring.

The really smart move would have been to send up Snider for Sanchez the hitter before- Sweum had pulled Russell for Camp so he couldn't have brought in a lefty even if he had one left that didn't stink. Sanchez is to righties as Jones is to lefties. However things worked out so you can't really say Hurdle made a mess of things.

So what happens if you order tickets but the game is cancelled? Do you get a refund or different tickets to another game?
