WGN guys said their pitcher throws mainly fastballs but seems today he is dealing off speed stuff......our weakness.

Seems like a real snoozer, 2-0 type game brewing here.

Marte got greedy. Don't push your luck.

Marte is a very exciting player, but he still makes young rookie mistakes sometimes. Misplays balls in the outfield, makes base running errors. That last one was an inning killer.

Again, having trouble with a pitcher with a less than stellar record.

I don't like the order, honestly. Jones-Alvarez-McKenry is too hit-or-miss in the middle of the order for my taste. Walker shouldn't be batting 2nd in his current form.

Doesn't help that Marte got thrown out at third with 1 out, either.


And there's Pedro homering again.

Morton losing it. 3 hits in a row including the homer. Bucs better start hitting now. And a hit batsman.

Better get that bullpen going.

I was really afraid this was gonna happen when they said he hadn't done anything since the 2 IP last week. Sheesh.

This is why the Pirates need to be looking at adding a pitcher(sounds like Nolasco headed to LA). Morton shouldn't be relied on...not at least this year. Personally I'm not sure he'll ever be good. Cole is going to have growing pains. And Gomez is probably better in the pen/spot starter.

Would help Morton if they would get him some runs....

Oh great they bring in cringe in place of walker? Don't know what hurdles reasoning for this is.

What's more worrisome: a[nother] possible Walker injury or Inge batting second?
