You don't run yourself out of an inning with 2 outs. Especially against an arm like Ross'

Bottom 1st down 3-0. Morgan on 2nd, McLouth on 1st, 2 out. LaRoche at the plate and the Braves aren't holding our 2 fastest guys on. 4 pitches go by and they never run. Why not get the additional runner into scoring position. That's lousy coaching all the way around. Beasley, Hill, Russell, Varsho need to get their heads out of their hind ends. Bob Walk was all over this. That no Pirate was able to spot this no-brainer of a play was inexcusable. Horrible game all the way around today. Pitching, hitting, baserunning, fielding, throwing, COACHING.

Stealing 3rd is almost always a risky play. The first inning is far too early to be taking chances like that on the base paths. It's better to let the hitter hit and see what happens next.

Not so sure, With 2 outs and 2 strikes it may be ok.

Horrible day. I didn't make one comment on this game so far and the only thing i will say is Both teams played hard.

Were you guys watching the game? There was no risk at all. Braves had the LaRoche shift on so Chipper was way over in the hole. They weren't looking at Morgan. Kotchman played behind McLouth. They would've went in standing up.

Don't run on an arm like Ross'...gimme a break. Unless you saw the situation with your very own eyes (which you obviously didn't), your comments means nothing. I understand your viewpoints under most circumstances but...THE BRAVES WERE GIVING US THE DOUBLE STEAL AND WE DIDN'T TAKE IT.

I saw the game. Walk was saying the same thing. Take the bases as a gift.

Since I did watch the game, I suppose that means that my comments mean something after all.

First inning, I don't take the chance on making the third out that early.
