With that pitching matchup and the nature of the game, definitely an "other 54" win.

Mosdef 'Other 54'.

The wail of collective Pirates fans when Hughes entered the game was heard all the way in Bangkok*.

Conversely, the silence when Barmes produced TWO RBI's was deafening.

*That is, according to the NY Times.

In case you're wondering, J.D., last night's loss was definitely an "Other 54" loss. Tough to drop one with A.J. on the mound against a AAA guy.

I'll make a mild objection to this. Jeff Locke vs. Cole Hamels. I would have penciled this into the loss column.

We stole this one. At worst, other, at best, we make this a 55-54-53 discussion.

I vote for other.

Which is why we actually play the games. And it's why, even with the benefit of hindsight, this exercise, while fun, is still rather pointless.
