Something to cheer about. Way to keep plugging away Bucs. Now keep the lead Capps!

Jeez I love this team. I can now clean the pool with a smile on my face. The beer tastes better too.

Me too AzBucFan. Win or lose, I love the Bucs, and will continue to be a fan. But I really like this collection of guys.

First off, gotta give some credit to Hinske for getting us closer...to the pen for keeping it that way.

Have to credit Karstens for keeping us in the game, after it seemed like the Bucs wanted to give it away. Then credit Burnett, Chavez, and Grabow for holding it (and to Russell for pulling all the right strings.)

Then, to Jack for the HR, then to Nyjer (after seeing so many fans write him off) come up with another hit, then Young, facing an 0-fer, coming through in the clutch to give the Bucs the lead.

And finally, credit to Capps with a great effort in the 9th.

Go Bucs! Beat the Cubs!

That came out of nowhere, but it was absolutely solid for the Pirates to win. They outhit, outpitched and outplayed the opposition today.

Wilson's bomb was a no-doubter, as was Hinske's. Morgan also scorched his double. The Sox hit two or three balls hard all game.

Capps mowed down the Sox. His slider was very solid today. He overmatched Anderson with the slider.

Young is a much better hitter left-handed than right-handed, which is too bad since the Buccos already have a plethora of leftie hitting outfielders.

We have too damn many lefties. And we knew that before we even signed Hinske.

Capps was awesome - 95 mph heat mixed with a good slider will work every time.

Pirates have too much of nothing.

If this team can field a winning ball club with 8 starting position players that hit left-handed, I'm not complaining. Let's not forget, PNC Park is built for left-handed power bats and left-handed hitters that like to use left-field (i.e. our huge LF).

Agree with Ralphie, Capps was very good and that really is encouraging.
Also shows the no quit attitude that makes believers out of us all.
