Hahaha...I recall in an argument with someone last year, I said that Jones was a career minor leaguer. Anyone looking to impugn my credibility in future arguments, there ya go.

(Another knock on wood for the huge jinx I just put on Jones)

I recall a few people were saying that since Jones obviously doesn't have the makings of an impact player, the best we could hope for is that he gets off to a great start so we can fool somebody into giving us a haul for him. If that's the case, maybe we should pull the trigger and move him after the game.

Donelly got out of a big jam in the top of the 8th. Did he just strike out the side?

The pitching (especially bullpen) was less than stellar, but at least many of the outs were Ks which we are not used to seeing. Dotel did a nice job retiring the side in the 9th, especially after getting behind Manny 3-0 before getting him to pop up.

I doubt we'll see many 3-HR games by the Pirates this year but for today it was fun. Jones and McCutchen did what we expected them too after last year. Doumit's health is of course a key factor as always. Church's clutch pinch-hit double was something we have the capability of seeing often this year, let's hope that trend will continue.

I only got to see a very short part of the game (which did at least include Doumit's home run) but definitely seems like a promising start, at least for Duke and the offense. At what point are we allowed to accept that Garrett Jones isn't a one season wonder :-) In the meantime I'll take Jones tied with Pujols for the league lead...

I saw some very positive descriptions of Dotel's first outing but where LA not just giving up by then?

Aside from the obvious things to like/love...I feel a bit better about Cedeno at short and really like Clement. Didn't get to see any double play attempts so we'll see how they do there. This was a game we would lose 5-4 last year. How great is it to have Delwyn Young and Ryan Church to pinch hit and spot start?! Great game! The Pirates made the most of their opportunities today.

This might be worth it just to witness the yinzer uproar. Can you imagine?

Maybe he was pulled over for a DUI on the way home.

One can hope....
