Arghhh...ESPN is switching between Houston and Pittsburgh as bonus coverage...

How do others get out of market games? I don't really feel like paying for MLB Extra Innings, but there is a $12/month sports package that DirecTV offers...not sure if it would carry FSN Pittsburgh or whoever carries the Pirates.

Directv does carry FSN Pittsburg, i get that package but if you are out of area it will be blacked out.


Are you serious? That's the most backward thing I've ever heard...you're supposed to black out the people who live in market, so they'll go to the game...

So basically it's MLB extra innings or nothing...great.

Think it's safe to take Jack out of the game now?

After seeing the replay of McLouth's homer, I gotta say that I like the new uniforms. Finally, some actual jerseys!

Gameday says that Ross's FB clocks at 90 MPH. That seems low. Is that true?

Agreed, he's been impressive, very encouraging play tonight by him and Ohlendorf.

JR, I know he just doubled and all, hindsight is 20/20 and all that, but you think we can rest our really good defensive SS when we have an 8 run lead and his finger resembles a link of breakfast sausage? Thanks.

Yeah I noted that earlier. His velocity was down last start as well. No clue as to why.

Good job Ohlendorf. I saw him pitch just the 6th and 7th, but will watch the rest on replay. He walked just one, and threw only 91 pitches in 7 innings. Super effort against a club that has been red hot coming into the game.

And Ohlendorf has been clocked at 88-90 his past two starts. Not sure if his velocity will pick up later, when the weather heats up, but Ohlendorf is featuring the 2-seam, and not the 4-seam. That change will reduce the velocity by 2-4 mph.

Yes, and the whole team is playing well. Didn't miss a beat without Doumit tonight. Good defense especially Little LaRoche, great offense including stolen bases and Nate's long ball. Adam was 2 for 3(Apr?)

Just fun to watch tonight and showing some progress toward ultimate goal.

Jacks injury and error are the only bad things that came out of the game tonight.
I hope it didn't get worse tonight for him but it looked like it might have. I haven't heard word anywhere about him, they just talk about Doumit when it comes to injuries.

I think the most telling stat about this game was this: Marlin's broken bats=5.

Ohlendorf can be very effective at 90-91 mph with that slider and change-up if he commands them all like he did tonight. It could well be that Kerrigan has him taking a little velocity off in exchange for the command. He very much impressed me tonight...he looks like he is really learning how to pitch, not just throw.

Guys, this team is starting to grow on us, isn't it?

I'd like to see Ohlendorf do it a few more time, but he was pretty darn good tonight. I don't ever recall him throwing that good of a slider and change up. And it's not like he did this against an offensively challenged team like the San Francisco Giants.

Very encouraging indeed.

I didn't get to see much of the game tonight. Saw the first few innings and then was relegated to listening on the radio and "watching" dots on my Blackberry. This is the first time that I can remember watching him catch a game. On the first wild pitch, his effort was terrible. That being written, even Ozzie Smith had one go under his glove every once in a while. But . . . his fundamentals looked poor and he was nowhere close to blocking the ball. It was not a difficult play and he should've helped his pitcher on that one.
I also did not feel as though he had any sort of control over Miller tonight. Miller was like a wild unbroken colt. I thought that it was apparent that the game was out of control for him. He was moving at a much too rapid pace and he had very little rhythm. The catcher could have gone out and settled him down; helping the pitcher get his head on straight. I'm not saying that it would have made a difference tonight but it seemed to me that the young pitcher was out of his element and I'm thinking that Ivan Rodriguez, Carlton Fisk, Johnny Bench, etc. would have taken the young kid under his arm and gotten him back on track.
I'll watch him some more tomorrow but I can't say I was real impressed with what little I saw.

Miller's running in between the raindrops was reminiscent of another lefthander that I know of. Uncannily similar. He went on the DL after the game with an oblique injury. Hope it is nothing serious.
