Well this is a big opportunity for the bucs. Would be nice to see them take at least 3 in this series, maybe even 4. But maybe thats asking too much.

I'd be happy with three...

And a huge debut for Polanco on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

Charlie ... no walks, no HBP, and gives up 1 run.

Also, very good to see Marte break out with 3 well-struck hits, 2 to RF, a stolen base, RBI, etc.

J_C knows what I am talking about ... buy low!! :D

I bought high on Marte...I've been worried the Marte Parte was going to be the next Beanie Baby craze.

I'd be quite happy if Marte had a career like Beanie Babies. They were almost like gold for 6 years. ;)

But point taken....

While the results have been disappointing so far this year, I still think the talent will win out in the long run.

Even when he is in a funk, he can still do things physically that other players simply can't do.

Marte took some time off, and came back with some pretty good at-bats on Sunday. He had some very good swings, and even where he went 0-2 on the failed bunt attempts, he hammered the 2-2 pitch in that at-bat to RF and moved Martin to 3rd base.

Then he struck the ball very crisply twice yesterday. He is hitting to RF and, lo and behold, driving the ball and not fanning.

If he continues to work on driving the ball to RF, he will wait on those freaking dirt sliders and lay off them. He continually fanned on that pitch because he was in "pull mode" and was trying to pull pitches on the outside corner, which requires that the bat get moving early ... leading to some fugly swings at pitches in the dirt.

Wait on those pitches ... drive them to RF. Drive one right back up the middle and have the pitcher say, "@#$% that pitch."

Cutch's 2nd half stats from 2011 should be posted in the locker room so the whole team can see what happens when you try to pull the ball and hit it out with every swing.

The worst fundamentals I have ever seen displayed by a major leaugue team in my life. Don't forget the botched play by failing to cover first and Pedro throwing the F'ing ball into the seats on a routine ground ball. I can't believe this crap the past few games.

Ugly win last night, but we'll take it. Let's take the series tonight.

Good series win. Nice to see the Pirates take the last two when the pitching match-ups didn't favor them. It helps that McCutchen is destroying absolutely EVERYTHING.
