Hurdle isn't doing anything dumb with the lineup. Makes me nervous that he seems to have figured out a functional lineup against RHP.

Just replace Martin with McKenry and I would be happy.

Until they figure out that "pitch framing" is a farce and is code for "he wears the jersey of a team that wins", Martin's going to play.

What, I thought it was a rule the other team has to score in the first inning.

Why hold Jones at 3rd? Not like El Blimpo will get him home.

Yup, lame pop-out by Blimporama with 2 on and a chance to bust the game open early. Where's my shocked face?

I think I care more about Pedro's baseball career than Pedro does and that's a problem.

I'm going to defend Martin - he's coming around offensively and has been good defensively

I hope one run is enough for AJ and the bullpen tonight.

It would really be nice if the offense could give Burnett some breathing space.

Can't listen to any streams online in Pittsburgh.... all blocked or Pens on. Listening to St. Louis broadcast which doesn't seem to care about what AJ is doing

Time for Melancon in the 8th and Grilli in the 9th to sew this one up.

I love our tattooed, unhinged staff ace. He's decided that he has a beef with the Cards now, which makes me love him more.

Should I stop calling Sanchez Basura Caliente, or just go with it for now? Doubled home Cutch. 4-0 Bucs.

Murray with a goal and Gaby Sanchez with a pinch-hit RBI double. Time to buy a Power Ball ticket.

Wait till he is over .200. He's certainly the best "ez" in the lineup

Oh, Clint. I thought I'd go an entire game without you doing something to annoy me. Why waste Grilli here even for a batter?

The Pirates are now up to 26th in team BA, 28th in OPS, and 24th in runs. Stumbling towards mediocrity. If they had those 4 runs from the Tuesday game they'd be 18th in runs right now.
