This is the kind of game that could give us heartburn. :)

When they look like a lock, don't bet them. I worried last night pre-game and I'm concerned again.

See my post below. I've been worried about his series the whole week. You never want to face the team with nothing to lose.

Patience. Patience. Patience. Middle/Opposite field. Middle/Opposite field. Take Bedard's off-speed stuff and whack it off the Clemente Wall.

Thanks for sucking when we wanted you to be good, then not being horrendous when we are relying on you to be your normal self, Bedard, you flaming sack of goat feces.

Bedard started out well for us last year but faded badly. I really didn't care for his body language on the field. He looked soft, listless, and uncaring.

He did have good stuff last night and pitched well but I was very disappointed in the Pirates offense, both last night and in the ninth on Friday.

Last night way too many lazy fly balls and pop ups. Guys trying to hit homers instead of line drives. Too much looking at strike 3. Sanchez last night with the bases loaded and 2 outs. Walker the night before same scenario.

This failure to protect the plate with 2 strikes is really bothering me. A fundamental skill that is being ignored. Also they chase bad pitches when ahead in the count too often.

This offense has a lot more potential than what they have been showing lately.
