Gotta hit with runner's in scoring position tonight. Help wandy out.

Right handers hitting well against gallardo so far. Hopefully bucs can get something going. So far thru 2, no dice.

This is probably a terrible thing to say because he's one of the few Brewers who doesn't showboat, but I hate Aoki.

Slap hitters just irritate me to no end. Probably leftover resentment from pitching against them in my playing days :lol:

Great job pitching out of a jam, Wandy. Now come on bucs offense, wake up!

Kudos to Wandy for working out of that jam.

And Starling Archer is right ... I see those guys running and slapping at the ball like in girls softball, and I cannot believe they can put the bat on the ball.

Those hitters irritate the hell out of me. Well, at least until the Pirates get one, then it's okay ...

So I'm "watching" via computer at work again.

Who has the Pirates only hit so far? :D

Slap hitters?

How quickly we forget Tike Redman and Adrian Brown.

I think he cheated, he got away with it. What I think doesn't matter but if I were at the game I wouldn't harass him. Having said that, I don't agree with blass. Other fans, harass away.

End of the 4th. Not much coming from the righty against righty thing.

Hahaha nope, never made it past AAA WPIAL. Apparently a pitcher with a mid-low 80's fastball and a 6' 1B with doubles power isn't all that attractive :lol:

Appreciate the welcomes, looking forward to the discussion.

Great job by Wandy getting out of that, Gallardo considers his mastery of us unfortunately.

So how would this make me NOT dislike slap hitters??

And those guys did not employ the Japanese run-as-you-swing method.

1 hit through 5?

Riddle me this....gallardo is coming off two lackluster starts where he was roughed up and lacked control. Obviously off his game.

Had the bucs caught him at the right time during those two starts would he had a great game?

Keep doing what you're doing wandy. You're gonna have to. Top of the order due up for the buccaneers.

Yep, it's completely irrational on my part but for some reason I just can't stand it. You'd think with Braun's incessant bat flipping and Jean Segura quickly adopting that demeanor that I'd have more to complain about but I think the fact that Aoki is so good at just hugging the lines on all his hits that it's incredibly annoying.

Would love to see us capitalize on that leadoff double.

Tabby batting. Wouldn't mind seeing him swing away since he's so big on inside-outing the ball.

A hot-hitting Tabata bunting with Marte on second and no outs.

You just knew Walker would come through with at least 1 run. Too much of an RBI machine not to.
