This game was a good example of how to make a great offensive strategy simply useless.
Pirates mound has to be renewed with big investments of money: find someone that knows where to put the ball to avoid a HR derby....

It's really a shame! :x

I think we missed out on a chance to get anything for Grabow. We should have traded him last year, he is next to worthless when it comes to getting something in return for him.

(1) Pitchers need to throw inside.
(2) However, some pitchers are better than others at throwing on the inside corner.
(3) John Grabow is not particularly good at hitting the inside corner. He leaves the ball over the plate a ton.
(4) The only pitch that Chris Ianetta can really hurt you with is a fastball over the plate, inner part.
(5) Ianetta is not going to hit a HR against offspeed away.
(6) Grabow is ahead 1-2.
(7) Has two runners on, ahead 7-4.
(8) And decides it is a good time to try and spot a ball on the inner half of the plate.

Dumbest pitch selection in the history of the universe.


Thanks for this Bucfan, I was unable to watch the game. I highlighted the two things that piss me off the most. WTF!!!! He has a waste pitch there. Low and outside schmuck, low and outside!!
