Pirates win 2nd straight. Capps started out shaky but thankfully a DP ended the game, 3-1 Bucs. Man, even when you think Nate is going to go a game hitless, he leads off the 8th inning with a triple. Great start by Dumatrait, this marks his official first big league victory.

I'm watching the Indians-Yankees game. Cliff Lee is gonna be 6-0. He is unhittable right now. He should have a perfect game going in the 5th inning but Delucci let a catchable fly ball drop for a hit. Imagine how good he'd look in a Pirates uniform.


I saw Lee. You are absolutely correct, he is simply filthy right now. He made Yankee hitters look stoooooopid.

And this issue is referenced in my post about Neil Huntington and talent evaluation. Huntington saw that Lee could be a big time pitcher. I thought Lee was the love child of Neal Heaton and Bob Kipper . . . wow, was I wrong.

:shock:
It takes a special talent to get lumped in with those two. Especially 'Round Tripper' Kipper!

I remember Bob Kipper...He was a Frontier League Pitching Coach in the late 90's...when he came to play Johnstown, the TV sports guy got an interview with him and asked him about his time with Pittsburgh and told him if he didnt have any questions about the upcoming series the interview would be over...
