Only have Gamecast on at the moment - did James McDonald run for him?


Yes, McDonald pinch ran.



Damn it, I lost out on a fantasy run by benching him last minute for a starter!

Bloop single to right off the end of the bat. Inge sucks and he got lucky. Now let's all hope Walker gets back soon to send him to the bench.

I love the guy. He's teetered on giving up some late leads to the Bucs over the past year, but today he rose to the occasion!

In their defense, a while ago, when he was much better, he had a lot of saves.

I seriously lost a small amount of bladder control when I read this. Created an embarrassing office moment. :shock:

JC, it was a clutch bloop, ok? A clutch bloop that you'd expect from a savvy vet who knows the value of a bloop in that situation.

Good work, Pedro.

If the Gamecast is correct, Michael Gonzalez had Pedro at 0-2 and threw him a third straight fastball.

Thank you, Gonzalez.

Someone didn't read their scouting reports.

So now that we're winning, I guess the Pirates can use Melancon and Grilli.

And Pedro laced it to right. Line drive. Not lucky.

El Toro is starting to suck less.

I hate how he keeps getting down 1-2 or 0-2, but other than that second at-bat where he flailed at the curve in the dirt, he's been hitting well with two strikes. Night and day from last year.

I'm starting to dislike Hurdle a bit. Not a lot. But a bit.

So, do I have this right: the Brewers have had 6 players on 1st, and four of them stole second?


That's why Martin plays a lot more than the Fort. I like the Fort, but let's not forget, the SB problems were not all due to Barajas last year.

Three more outs.

Oh, and Yunieski Betancourt has 7 HR's and 22 RBI's? Please, try and convince me that he is not using PED's, along with juice-boy Braun.

Anyone else feel as though the Bucs could use . . . say . . . another 10 runs or so? Miller Park is such a freaking band box and . . . dare I say it . . . Grilli has been so good . . . I'm a wreck listening to this game.

Bucfan -
Miller Park is a bandbox. Kind of like the Humpy Dome and pre-humidor Coors Field. And, call me cynical but I think that the Brewers use the retractable dome feature to their benefit and enhance the offensive numbers in that park. No proof. Just feel that - probably because I hate them. HATE THEM.
