Pirates' lineup:

1. McCutchen, CF
2. Wilson, SS
3. Young, LF
4. Jones, RF
5. Andy LaRoche 3B
6. Adam LaRoche 1B
7. Diaz, C
8. Vazquez, 2B
9. Morton, P


Astros' lineup:

1. Bourn, CF
2. Tejada, SS
3. Berkman, 1B
4. Lee, LF
5. Blum, 3B
6. Pence, RF
7. Matsui, 2B
8. Quintero, C
9. Rodriguez, P


The Pirates had better come to play today. As DK said in his blog, this isn't a typical day-game-after-night-game lineup the Astros are using today.

Adam dropped to 6th and Jones is cleaning up

Cutch, Wilson, and Young three quick outs......swinging at junk, not being patient.....here we go again............just give the opponent's pitcher an easy time of it.

only "watching" on mlb.com, but seems like nice work by Charlie to get out a 2nd inning jam. can't really tell for sure, but it looks like Charlie has some good movement on his pitches (again). I'm liking this guy . . . alot. He's making the McLouth deal look really good.

Right. Always a new thread. Otherwise, we morons may not notice it.

Morton did kind of suck in that last inning. He was victimized by some bad defense and by some bad calls by the homeplate umpire, but still there were several balls that were too fat, like the one to Berkman, and several that were just wild, like the 4 pitch walk to Quintero.

Nothing but misery and frustration for Pirate fans.

What a lousy pickup this Vazquez dude turned out to be. He can't hit or field, and we're stuck with him for next year too.

Ryann --- just to let you know-- Young is currently 7/35 since June 17. That is exactly an average of .200. AND HE CAN"T PLAY DEFENSE

Adam LaRoche tried to field a routine grounder to second. He realized too late that he should maybe cover the bag but couldn't get back there in time. Vazquez failed to field a one-hopper that Freddy would have had easily. Either play would have stopped the big inning.

Very fitting that the last pitch of the game was a called strike to Jones. The pitch was both high and outside. The ump f*cked us all day.

With a grand total of 5 singles, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts, 2 GIDPs and on a single occassion with back to back hits, perhaps if everyone went up there bunting - they might have had more baserunners today. :evil:
