What's his opinion on sacrifice bunts?


He takes the word 'sacrifice' literally.

Not with this team!

Great win by the Buccos. My question, are they just toying with us or will they hit .500 today?

Hmm. Well, depending on who's up at bat, that could be a good thing....

We will not with JVB.

So what will our lineup be in game two against the veteran Hudson? Do La Roche, Bautista, or Bixler start in the nightcap?

I admit that the odds aren't great but, then again, as bad as JVB was last year, Dumatrait was worse and the Pirates are 2-0 in his starts.

Minky (.412), Bay (.455) and Bautista (.375) have had some success against Hudson. I'd expect to see those three in the lineup at least.

Nady is supposed to play in the nightcap.

Given his injury and the horrid weather, it would not be a terrible idea to have him sit out both games. I really would hate to see him aggravate the injury.

I had the same thought, Bucfan. I would even include Sanchez in that argument. Oh well...they are both in.

I believe the PG notebook said Freddy may be getting a cortisone shot for the shoulder soon.

Turns out both could have taken the second game off and it would not have mattered.

Such is baseball.
