Shaky 1st inning, 26 pitches (14 strikes), 1 walk, 1 k, 1 hit

Luckily no runs...Maholm had a 4.50 1st inning ERA going into today...

I made a gutsy call before in fantasy and sat Derek Jeter and started Freddy as my middle infielder

Doumit pulls through with the bases loaded on a single, 2-0 Bucs

Rule 1: Don't walk the pitcher
Rule 2: When the other team walks your pitcher, make them pay

SF violated rule 1; thankfully, the buccos did not violate rule 2!

If Doumit can keep this up, maybe he'll get some consideration as the backup catcher for the All-Star Team...wasn't he left off the ballot this year?

The three-run inning starts with a walk. Same old, same old.

:cry:

And then another run on a single by the pitcher.

I am really starting to hate this roller coaster our starters take us on.

In past years, if the bucs were down 4-2 in the 7th, I would have very little hope that they could come back and win. I must say, this has changed. Haven't looked at the stats on this specific issue, but it sure feels like we climb back into games a lot more than in past. And, when we do, there are enough decent arms in the BP to keep the other team in check.

And, what do you know, as I type this, the battlin' buccos put runners on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out and Nate drives one home with a sac fly. Let's see what happens next...

Pass that Kool-aid over here, will ya?

Yep, and Paulino was on it. Figure that out. I noticed it when I did All-Star voting last night and nearly made a thread about it.

Again, it is my duty to remind everyone that Mr. Bay is very unclutch. He never comes through when he has an opportunity with the game on the line.

Also, Laroche sucks.

Whew, Yates gets it done, with help from Bautista and LaRoche. I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for a 1-2-3 ninth!!

Indeed. Let's see if Capps throws first pitch strikes and if the Giants swing at them....
