I may have to drag myself to Cincy for a Bucco game next summer. Doesn't look like seats would be too hard to come by.

White Flag did do one good thing for the Bucs.

He did plunk Phillips in Pittsburgh, which caused Phillips to miss four games.

Racist umpire saying Brandon Phillips swung the bat.

The Pirates waived the White Flag Saturday to make room for the mean streets of Cumpton.

When he gives it up he really gives it up. Those were two no-doubt shots.

Seriously, this performance is Maholm-esque. 2 HRs by 2 of the weaker hitters in the Reds lineup, one immediately after the Pirates finally scratch out a run. All that's missing is a walk issued to the opposing pitcher.

Walker leading off this inning, he'll still find a way to hit into a double play.

Walker draws a walk. Of course Mercer will fail somehow with a bunt.

If he's running out of the box that makes the throw much more hurried and more interesting.

Normally teams fare well when the leadoff hitter reaches base, but not the Pirates.
