...about Locke? Regression theorists would argue that this is the same pitcher we were seeing in the first half, only without the luck. I hope it's a head issue, not an arm issue. Hopefully, he's just afraid of the bats right now, and needs to regain his aggressive edge. His mentor looks to be in a bit of a funk too.

I guess time will tell...won't it doug? Quite frankly, Jeff Locke and AJ on the pitching side and Jones with the bat are not instilling confidence in me. They need to step up their game. And, to take it a bit further, the entire pitching staff is starting to show some signs of wearing down.

Pitching got the Pirates to where they're at and it will be pitching that will determine whether or not the Bucs will make it to the playoffs and be successful in the playoffs.

And of course, the bats and defense have to be there too to support the pitching.

A simple recipe...right? :D :? :D

Burnett will bounce back as his experience will take over. Maybe Locke isn't completely healed. He's been battered around in two of his last the the starts.

I think there is reason to be concerned. The offense has been a problem all season. And bucs have been playing around it. Now the pitching is faltering.

Just seems that these things eventually catch up with you.
