Geez, I go off to take a phone call and when I get back they've blown a 3-run lead and now they're losing!

This is disgraceful.

$%&!

I realize that Russell has a hard job. I don't envy him. Who could he go to in the bottom of the 5th? He had to do something though. With a 6-2 lead and one out Dumatrait walks a batter, gives up a single, walks another batter.. hello? Wasn't that situation screaming for a pitching change??

Sean Burnett now has more walks than games pitched.

Considering Osoria's work yesterday it seems curious to go to him today. Even more curious to stay with him when it quickly appears he doesn't have it.

Was Salas called up today?

What is that - the 4th time we've went down 1-2-3 tonight?

Thanks for the welcome. Been following the discussion here for a while and finally felt compelled to join in. Need a place to commiserate.

A few things I know I can say without certainty since the 4th inning of this game

1. Osoria is not a quality major league reliver
2. Burnett is never going to be an effective reliever in Pittsburgh
3. John Russell is struggling to handle this pitching staff
4. Our hitters can't be blamed with a 6-1 lead but geesh, wake up already

I don't know that I'd give up on Burnett. I wonder if he just needs to be used more regularly?

Yep, big fat zeros now starting in the 4th inning. Burnett just gives up a homerun. Offense is done, Pirates throwing in the towel, Interleague play, June is screwed, and the Pirates will be buried under .500 buried in last place by the end of June...........and just only one game below .500 when it began.

Nothing has changed. This same cast of characters has no balls. They choke when it really counts.

Time to clean house NH and start all over...........next!

No, the bad fortune was laid out by Cam Bonify and Dave Littlefield

On a lighter note, is anyone else disappointed the Pirates are not wearing throwbacks? I was hoping to see all yellows against all oranges. Weren't those '79 uniform options for both teams?

The announcers were saying in the pregame that they didn't offer the Pirates the opportunity to wear them.

Assuming they lose tonight, this will be the fifth -- the FIFTH -- time they've had an opportunity to get to .500 and choked.

Sigh.

OK, I've had enough. They can continue to wet the bed without my torturing myself anymore over it.

No baserunners after the 4th inning. That stunk!
