I'm concerned about becoming concerned. Does that sound nuts?

Hopefully Cole can stem the tide tomorrow. I'm not ready to go into panic mode yet, just keeping tell yourself all teams go through losing streaks at sometime, even the good ones.


You know, I keep telling myself all teams go through losing streaks at some time, even the good ones. Wait a minute...

Planning ahead, I think I may need to self-medicate during the Cardinal series at the end of the month. Good thing I'll be off that week.

You know, I was watching yesterday's game, there were some good looking bucco fans in the front row of the left field of the bleachers. Those guys looked cool.

Offense mired in a slump yet again. They need a spark, I think it's ok to give up on Snider, give lambo a shot. Swap either Harrison or Hague for Inge. I guess it has to be Harrison now cause someone needs to play second. But this Inge BS is a joke.

Why do the Pirates keep using the Oakland example as to why they hold onto Brandon Inge?

Someone should remind them that the Detroit Tigers made the World Series and released Inge during the season.

Not to mention that in the history of Major League Baseball, only one team has made a World Series with Brandon Inge on its roster.

Same reason Barmes has over 600 at bats the last two seasons.

How many times have the Pirates made the World Series in Inge's career. Seems like their chances increase dramatically with him.

As the "sausages" neared the Pirates' dugout, public address announcer Robb Edwards, who calls the race, said: "They're in front of the Pirate dugout!"

A split-second later, he said: "And they've passed the Pirate dugout safely!"

So, is it actually raining out there or are they still waiting for it to come?

8:45 start time.

Looks like CFJ is on the auction board tonight. Kelly Alvarez to the phones. Strictly a salary dump move if you ask me.

About time. This "rain delay" was a ploy to have the auction run an extra hour and a half.
