Grabow had a walk in the 8th, Capps walked Hart in the 9th, Maholms walk cost him the chance to finish the 8th, just can not have them.

Let's get this W tonight and start a new season at 13-13. We are not buried in the standings or anything no need to panic, just have to focus more and get the job done.

I don't think Maholm's one walk was the final nail in the coffin. Maholm needed to stay in the game longer than what he did.

Good point Doey. They have lost 6 of 7 in demoralizing fashion, but still there is much to like about what we've seen, particularly from the first 4 starters. Still reason for optimism, but these are, after all, the Pirates.

A number of pitchers who started out well and were throwing strikes - Capps, Chavez, Grabow - have now encountered control problems. Not sure why this is. I just know that if they continue throwing balls and walking guys that the very nice pitching stats are going to look a lot like last year's in short order.
