I think he looks like Chris Farley.

Is it just because he's fat?


No, his face and hair made me think of Chris Farley.

I originally read that as Benny Hill, and it still made perfect sense.

If there's any justice, Cumpton will be up and White Flag will be DFA'd.

Hyzdu had a magical week in his career. Can't hate on him. Just like I can't hate Rob Mackowiak- it's not his fault that Lloyd thought he could be an everyday player instead of using him against RHP who didn't have blazing fastballs.

AJ Burnett has a grade 1 tear in his calf. My understanding is this is a mild strain and generally gets better in 2-3 weeks. Still, I wouldn't be opposed to a panic trade for Bud Norris or Ricky Nolasco at this point. Assuming that NH can't figure out a way to get Matt Harvey for Hopeless, Alex Dickerson and a minor league pitcher.

2nd round pick Blake Taylor has signed with the Bucs, turning down a scholarship to Hawaii.

Keisel playing up his Pirate fandom when he was young. Like Obama when he somehow has a fan connection with every team that visits the White House :pop:

Hopeless strikes out with a runner on 3rd. How much longer will this go on?

From the MLB.com gamecast:

"That was pitch number 45 for Stephen Fife; his effectiveness may start slipping, as he holds opposing hitters to a .300 average in the first 45 pitches but they hit .421 off him after that."

Cutch with a 2-run double. 2-0 Bucs, which matches the number of runs the Pirates scored against the Dodgers in 3 games in LA.
