Also of note, the 5 runs in the 8th were scored off of some guy named Jessie Chavez.

I'm not getting too worked up over the ST games. Either way. I don't think anyone thought the Bucs were a much better team when they pounded the Yankees recently. It was fun to watch though.

Bucs win 7-6 in the 10th but I don't know how. The MLB box score does not indicate a 7th RBI even though the run is earned. Manny Acosta, the losing pitcher, is credited with 3 walks and a wild pitch, so maybe he threw away the winning run.

Stars of the game go to Pearce (2 for 5, HR, 3 RBI), Young (1 for 2, 2 RBI) and d'Arnaud (2 for 2 with a stolen base). The winning pitcher was The Great Stephen Jackson.

And there was nooooo doubt about it!

Baloney. Most of the guys he has acquired are still in the low to mid minors. Unless you can show me any team in history that lost 95 games and had one of the worst three minor league systems in baseball were turned around two years later. One day when folks look back on Huntingdon's performance with the Pirates, they won't give a hoot about the record of this year's team, and they won't even care that much about how the trades worked out. They'll be looking at how he did in the draft.

by the way, I'll be glad to book any bets that the Pirates will not have a better record this year than they did last year.

Stop paying attention to what the front office says. In the long run, it just doesn't matter. That being said, you're misinterpreting the statement.

The MLB TV baseball anchors believe the Bucs will be 9 or 10 games better than last year.

Yeah, that sounds about right to me.

Especially if they role the real talent up early enough in the year to get established a bit and make a difference by the end of the season in terms of winning games.
