It's frustrating. I know Russell wants to take another look at JVB but Dumatrait had his five days rest. Well, we all knew we weren't gonna score runs for whoever started.

I miss seeing Burnett as a starter. Am I correct in understanding that his career may be prolonged as a result of him switching to the pen?

With respect to the Pirates bench, there is a huge drop-off in production when Paulino is in the game as compared to Doumit.

The whole line-up just works out better with Doumit hitting 4th.*

*Yes, Ronnie had a big double against the Braves on Saturday. But seriously, nobody would want to trade the offense that Doumit offers for Paulino's hitting.

As cynical as it is to say, we were done for one of these games sooner or later, might as well get it done on a split of a double header.

JVB sent down after the game.

not sure who is up. I suspect Marino Salas (sp?).

That would make sense. Pirates really cannot use another left-hander in the pen. Salas has pitched fairly well in AAA.
