What happens when you walk the bases loaded? You pay, Brian Burres.

6-6 tie.

Pitchers who won't or can't consistently throw strikes will not pitch in the majors, unless such pitcher is Nolan Ryan or somebody akin to Ryan.

Pirates do not have Nolan Ryan on the staff. If the pitchers don't throw strikes, fall behind, walk guys, etc., then such pitchers are destined for Indianapolis.

However, please, please, please, please, please, please, PLEASE remember - spring training stats mean zip.

True. But nothing wrong with "Work fast. Throw strikes. Change speeds."

I've seen this movie before.

I agree Bucfan, but even if you are working on your stuff, if you can't throw a three-ball strike, then you got problems. I would rather see a pitcher in the spring give up 10 straight hits then walk one guy.

Bucs pile in on the 9th including a single smoked by Pedro. In the bottom of the inning, Pedro made a nice barehand play to throw out a speedy Yankee runner. Good to see some defense from him as well.

5 innings scoreless with 7 strikeouts and only 2 hits and 1 walk. Pretty impressive. Hard to comment much without being able to see the games though.

There are 29 pitchers who have thrown so far and 14 of them have yet to allow an earned run.
Looking forward to the cut-down days. Those are always interesting.

Carrasco is very, very likely to make the club as a long reliever. His performance this spring is solidifying his status.

P.S. Relative to the "name the opening day roster" contest, I appear to have misspelled the name "Raynor." For some reason, it came out spelled as "Young." I hope that the powers-that-be make this right and give me proper credit for "Raynor-looked-like-Young" in my prediction.
