What a joke.

I usually detest the HR derby, but watching Pedro would've been awesome. Michael flippin' Cuddyer???!??? The guy's got 1 30+ HR season under his belt. CarGo and Harper I understand (although Harper's a bit of a reach), but Wright's a moron.

I'm not sure why, but I'm really disappointed with this.

Cuddyer and Wright go back to their days in the 757. It was a buddy pick. I'm not worked up about it because it spares us watching Pedro swing and miss at the derby.

Made it through an inning without striking out. Feels like a good sign.

Jones breaks the seal. Kind of him to get the first K and not leave the honor to Inge.

The fact that Harper is now not only starting the ASG but in the derby makes me sick. He didn't deserve to be in the game last year and he barely deserved to be a backup this year. I don't doubt the kid is talented but other than a short burst of home runs over the first couple weeks of this season he has done next to nothing to merit the hype. He still gets pimped by the media as "the phenom" and one of the best players in the game when IMHO he's barely been an above-average outfielder since being called up. I feel like I understand better how opposing fans feel about Crosby now, except Crosby actually produces to his "best in the game" label.

I had a feeling Pedro wouldn't get picked but I assumed it would be at the expense of Votto, Brown, or Goldschmidt...not freaking Cuddyer and Harper.

Colon looked more engaged during that plate appearance than Inge

Oakland defensive follies means the Bucs have two on, none out, Marte up. Please don't waste this, guys.

At some point this year, this team will start hitting with runners in scoring position. I don't know when, but I have to believe they'll get it sorted out eventually. I feel it in my bones.

What is that play where a ball goes to the outfield with a runner on 3rd?

Woah, you mean you're allowed to score a run with a runner on 3rd and less than two outs??? Weird.

Getting shut out by the 97 year old steroid addled Colon sucks.

are you kidding me?????? First Tabata tries to circumnavigate PNC Park to get to a fly ball that bounces off the warning track, and then Pedro gives the ole tag,,,game should still be 0-0

I'd be happy if Inge just struck out here instead of hitting into a double play.
