Doumit breaks out of his batting slump and Cedeno continues his surprise play as the Bucs take 3 of 4..........I'm going to go way out on a limb and predict that Pearce will strike out at least once.....ha!

hey...I didn't even mention the casino...if i had, it would have been.
Milledge gets one at "Lastings" ... and it's time for #46 to go over 86. Garret hits one over the 86 lumber sign.
DaDuhm.. Crash! Thank you...don't forget to try the baklava.

I like Walkie. Being a DirecTV customer I have to listen to alot (I get more of the FSNP broadcasts this year though!)
of the other team's announcers and that sucks. Like the WhiteSox guy...everytime a Pirate strikes out it's
"HEGAWN!" and when giving the score refers to the Sox as "GoodGuys" I think we have fair and only slightly biased announcers. The Red's guys are real good IMO too. I remember Skip Caray (rip) once saying when the Braves were playing the Pirates...we'd been dismal at the plate for about the first 3 innings..."Boy...these guys can't hit a lick" we started really hitting and came back and won...that was fun!

That was a great move by DirecTV giving both feeds of games this year instead of blacking one out. You can watch an inning from each perspective or switch back and forth to see how the announcers react to questionable calls.

I wonder what Perry Hill will be talking about during the 2nd inning. Lets Go Bucs!

We could easily open this up to a 3-0 lead already.

Well atleast Garrett Jones is good with the bat.
The Jones and Doumit gold glove combo has got a runner to 3rd by themselves.

Doumit is not very athletic behind the plate. He is slow to move down or down and over to block pitches in the dirt or he just reacts slow or both.

I'm not a big Doumit fan right now as you can tell. :?

Well, we saw some very terrible D and good D all in the same inning. Cedeno is impressive in the field so far. I have no hope for his bat, but hey, at least we know who will be hitting in that 8 spot for a while :)

Wow what a double play there. Maybe Cedeno can do it here with the bat also.
