The thing that really sucks about it being a blowout is we don't get to complain about getting Hurdled and the idiotic first base umpire who will not only have a job next season, he will get a raise. The only thing I can complain about is our impotent offense the last two games and Melancon's last three weeks of the season. :D

Actually, he wasn't thinking at all. Because if he was, he would have been expecting curve balls in the dirt. And that didn;t change after strike one or strike two.

There won't be any 2013 season memoirs from me tonight. I'm mentally washed up right now.

What is this guy on TBS talking about. The Cards had 3 hits on Cole.

I do wish Hurdle had stuck with Cole for at least another inning. I understood pinch hitting to try to get some offense going, but Cole had gas left.

Oh well.

I know the game was essentially over at 5-1 in the 8th. But, why in the world did Hurdle pitch to Kozma with Wainright on deck? Obviously, it's a moot point but we were a bloop and a blast away from that 6th run mattering. Imagine if Pedro gets on and Martin goes deep. We'd be calling for Hurdle's head on a platter...at least I would.

That's the way it had to end.

We learned about Hurdle as a playoff manager.

Melançon.. one homerun allowed in seventy innings.. then two in the playoffs.. I was thinking maybe it's because
he's never pitched in playoff baseball, but it's more likely a result of overwork.

MoTownWV said it.. once we were down by two runs I felt there would be no comeback. Wainwright didn't seem as
dominating as Wacha but he's still one of the best. I admire Matheney for allowing him to go the distance.

I watched from a sports bar, enjoyed a lovely quesadilla. This morning my wife asked "Did they lose to the Browns?"

>__<

She always thinks the Pirates play football. I will be going to the Lions-Browns game Sunday so her confusion is
understandable.

Thanks for the entertaining Bucco talk gents.. really enjoyed reading last night's comments.

Just my opinion but I think the decision to pull Cole was more about Hurdle sticking with Burnett too long in Game 1 than it had to do with trying to generate offense.

If you had quoted me Pedro's stat line before the series I would have said no way the Pirate lose the series. Marte and Walker were killers this series.

See, I was the opposite.

Until Shark gave up that HR I thought the Bucs could and would come back.

It's not like they didn't have chances.

In the end, that's what I'll remember most and fondly about these Buccos. They made you believe again.

Melancon started to crack at the end of the regular season, so I think it was the latter if anything.

True.

Because Wainwright is a pussy.

Five run lead and afraid to throw a fastball?

@#$% him. How about your 12th Tommy John surgery, you curve-ball smoking bitch?

I suspect my anger at the Cardinals for the NLDS has not yet dissipated.

Yeah, damn those pussies for implementing a strategy that worked perfectly against the Pirates. Be a man and let us get some hits!!
