I had been there since 10:30am, I was obviously in some sort of shock.

Hopeless back in the lineup today. Martin also playing, which is surprising since it's a day game after a night game that went over 3 hours.

You knew Barmes was going to be in the line-up after Mercer's terrible error last night.

Barmes has been getting the backup catch treatment (day game after night game).

I imagine Martin is catching because of Cole pitching. I know I wouldn't want my future ace to have to deal with the Fort.

McKenry has caught Cole...2nd game of his career.

I'd rather take my chances with Sanchez then McHenry. Im thinking he is going to be gone after this season.

That's obvious. Dirty will be the back-up catcher next season.

I chuckled at the dirty remark. Really McHenrys bat isn't even useful off the bench. I'd sooner cut him today and just bring up Mr Dirty. Im hoping Pittsburghs love affair with the fort is over now, we might actually have a wild card to worry about.

I think we have a division to worry about. The 5 game series at the end of July against the Cards will prove a lot.

Baby steps were the last 2 years. Hence why we fell down 2 years in a row.

They aren't going to discard any of their beloved scrappy veterans after they traded McGehee last year and everything went to hell. If it means 3 of the 5 bench spots will be black holes (Hopeless, Inge, McKenry) then so be it.

Atleast Barmes still has a good glove. Sigh...I never understood Pittsburgh love of as you said scrappy veterans. All threes teams are guilty of this. We'll that and the dreaded hometown player.

It happens with every team. The Yankees used to have guys like Luis Sojo and Clay Bellinger hanging around, for example. The Tigers have Don Kelly. Ty Wigginton is on the Cardinals and batting a robust .161/.242/.196.

Two runners wiped off the basepaths in the first inning. For once, the Pirates aren't the team getting runners erased.

Martin throwing out 2 people in 1 inning. Did Barajas throw out 2 all year?

Last year this would have been runners on second and third with one out.
