I remember when Cueto was supposed to dominate our Pittsburgh Pirates. I'm liking the looks of this series. I predict that Sunday's win will be the beginning of a huge turn around for the Buccos.

I believe when he face the Pirates in April, he had yet to give up a run in any of his starts...and the Pirates spanked him...

Runners on 2nd and 3rd no outs. McLouth strikes out. Bay grounds out. Nady up...

How bad was that.

2nd and #rd with no outs. Our 3,4,5,6 hitters bat and we get nothing. You have to be pretty bad to do that.

Nady walks and LaRoche grounds out to first base. No runs. I hope this does not come back to haunt the Pirates in this game.

This has all the earmarks of being "one of those games." Anyone want to bet that Snell gives up some runs after the Bucs wet themselves in the first inning?

I do not have much confidence in Snell right now. The kiss of death when a team signs a player to a long term contract. They end up tanking. Let's go Snell. Start pitching.........BUB! I'm getting very annoyed with his starts.

The Reds are as bad as we are.

Snell was all over the place but he did get 3 strike outs. Not sure how, but we'll sure take them.

Now, come on Bucs.

Thank you Mr. Snell for sucking it up and pounding in some pitches to get some big K's. That's the "old" Ian I know.

Glad I missed that one!!
Now Bautista doubles . . . simply have to get on top and force the Reds to chase. Blew a golden chance in the first. Last thing the Bucs need is for Cueto to start feeling good about himself and settling in. He's all over the place right now.

Paulino get caught watching that ball or was he going hard from the start?

Go figure...Butista and Paulino team up to give Bucs the lead 1-0.
Joggin' Ronny should have stayed at first though :? Do we have a first base coach?

I couldn't tell, but I think he's just that slow.

Griffey threw a perfect one bouncer to the bag. Yeah, he's slow but took talent to throw him out. Not a bad gamble
