I don't really get why Moss deserves to bat 3rd. This better payoff for Russell or he will get more criticism.

I don't understand why the Astros sent Edwin Maysonet back to the minors and kept Matt Kata up. Maysonet destroyed us in the last series we played against the Astros.

Probably so he'd get regular playing time...

Who in the lineup DOES deserve to bat 3rd? Jack Wilson?, Jaramillo?, Vaszuez? You make do with what you have. That is something I think you would understand with your attempts at English with that limited intelligence.

But no, just another reason to bash Russell, when you really have no clue

I think my 3 through 6 hitters would look like this.

3. Jones, LF
4. Ad. LaRoche, 1B
5. Moss, RF
6. An. LaRoche, 3B

I liked it when we had it Adam, Moss, then Andy awhile back.

Don't look now but Andy LaRoche has been looking pretty bad at the plate the last three or four games.

Our "Ace" is in trouble in the bottom of the 2nd.

I never bash Russell I question his moves.

What is wrong with Maholm's control? It seems to be a problem the past couple months. He walks Bourne and he scores. It's tough to understand.

Just what I was thinking. Once again a walk comes back to haunt us.

Pirates give their "Ace" the lead. He comes right back, walks the NL Stolen Base leader resulting in a run. Bucs 2 Stros 1

During the NH show on Sunday 6/27, he mentioned Paul struggling through aches and pains and "fighting through pain". It was the only time I heard mention of any injury. If he is hurt, and continues to struggle it might be time to miss a start and heal. I am watching tonight w/ this in mind.

Dammit then why not sit him? We don't NEED him in there we have depth at the starter spot and he can take his time.

NH mentioned that Paul really wanted to play. I think it cuts both ways, and if he can't play he should sit. Players often want to 'play through pain'. It felt to me that NH was saying that it's Paul's decision but it's hard to tell on that forum. Obviously that show is pretty controlled and he's not going to break much news on it.

I do think it's strange that none of the beat writers have said anything about it, which makes me think it can't be very serious if he is hurt at all. I wonder if anyone else heard it and if so how they interpreted it.
