I attribute this to Grabow throwing 2 innings yesterday. He is not the same pitcher today.

Grabow was over due for that.


Guys on the radio said that Hart was sitting on the change-up and "blocked" that ball into right field.

He gave it a full swing, but let the ball get deep. He was looking offspeed, that is for sure. It was a humpback liner that Hinske could not reach.


Guys on radio said that hitters have been way out ahead of Grabow all year but that Hart was really looking for it and sitting on the pitch. They called it an "exagerrated" effort to get the ball to right field. Not sure what that means but they made it clear - at least in thier minds - that Hart was not fooled at all. Sounds to me like a good scouting report. Knew exactly what to be looking for.

You cannot f'in walk people to lead off the inning. It's is sooooooooooooooo simple. Chavez needs to switch place with Yates as far as when they come into the game.

Grabow did not help himself by leaving a change-up just below the belt. I really wonder why Grabow went 2 yesterday with the big lead. He should not have been used today, IMO.

Yes. Yates should never ever be allowed to pitch the 8th or 9th inning.

Look at Yates line. He gave up three earned runs without a hit. That's pathetic.

Here it is in a nutshell.

Bullpen BBs

PIT:6, MIL:0

End of story.

Give the offense credit. Five runs should be enough and they outhit the Brewers. Coming back from a three-run deficit on the road is commendable as well.

Well thats it. 11 hits and 5 runs for the Bucs and 8 hits and 10 runs for the Brewers. Thats a joke.

That bunch of nibblers and soft-tossers in the Brewers pen will get raped this year.

P.S. dumbshit - no Doumit, no McLouth and still 11 hits and 5 runs.

By July, Doumit, McLouth and Andrew McCutchen are here, destroying the Brewers joke of a pitching staff. You, of course, will be too cowardly to return ... just like you ran and hid when the great Brewers pen gave up a 3-run lead.

Very true. That guy disappeared when we tied it up at 5.

How stupid are you? A Brewers fan trash-talking about championships?

So Pirates fans had to be at least 38 to remember the Buccos last championship ... unlike the pathetic Brewer franchise, which has won EXACTLY ZERO IN ITS HISTORY.

Go back to Seattle, you pathetic little Pilot. The only interesting thing about your joke of a franchise is Jim Bouton's book in 1969 ... 40 years ago.
