I actually like our lineup against right handed pitchers, even Cain.

Good early run production from---who else?---the Bucs best two offensive weapons.

They'll need to keep it up against Cain.

Andy goes long to deep CF......HR! Way to go Andy. (Maybe this will get him going!)

Ryan Church follows with a long triple. Nice hit Ryan Church.

Bucs 5 Giants 3

Nice last two innings for the Buccos.

McCutch continues to do what he does best, Andy goes deep, Holyman with the three bagger, Aki with another hit to pad his fine showing...

This is a good comeback effort after a poor showings in the last two-three games.

Oi.

Has anyone seen Milledge catch a ball yet near the LF line? Maybe is it because everything is dropping in because he has to run 35 acres to get there?

Dotel gives up a 2 Run HR. Bucs 6 Giants 5

I do not like the feel of this one.

Good to be .500 again!

Four down, 78 to go!

Great catch by Jones at 1B. Sandoval ropes one but Jones dives and catches it. Dotel hung tough after giving up the HR.

Great team win for the Bucs. Pirates 6 Giants 5

PS: Evan Meek pitched very very good tonight also.

So I fell asleep after the 2nd inning, did Maholm ever manage to get his pitches down in the zone? Hard to tell judging by the score. The pitches I managed to see were pretty fat but he managed to escape with a couple of fly balls.

Did anybody else notice? Andrew McCutchen runs fast. haha. Last night was the first time I've noticed how quickly he's at top speed. On his 3rd step he seems to be in top gear. Unbelievable. I think we have a league leader on our hands again. When was the last time we had a league leader on a (good) category of note?

Always nice to wake up to a win. A lot to like about the game, specifically LaRoche homering, Cutch on the basepaths, and Garrett Jones having a huge day. Also a lot to dislike...such as Lastings Milledge going 0-fer, and only seeing 11 pitches in four PAs. The lineup has way too many holes in it for the 3-spot to be pulling that kind of crap.

I've been seeing a lot of this on the board lately. I've gotta say that I hate this perspective. 82 wins means nothing to me.

If St. Louis and Milwaukee were to struggle, 85 wins might win the division...

I'm not sold on the Reds, the Cubs are the Cubs, and Houston looks awful...

I dont think this team will be .500 and that isnt my goal for this team, but if alot of pieces line up and fall in place they could be close to .500 and if everyone performs above what is expected a winning season is possible...but not likely...

It would be nice to see this group pull a 1997 and actually win the division too...

Random observations:

    If there was a strong correlation between winning and collective team weight, SF would win any game against any team except maybe the Yankees on nights that Sabathia was pitching. Unless they start that Velez guy....

    Laroche's HR was to dead on center field. Let's hope this is the start of something.

    Doumit seems to get thrown out on the bases a lot. Not sure I can blame him for last night's instance though. It took a terrific throw from the right fielder to nail him.

    I like what I see from Ryan Church. He's been money off the bench thus far.

    Eight games, still no errors for Clement. Now if only he could start hitting...

    Maholm made some clutch pitches to get out of jams. Watch and learn, Charlie Morton.

    Meek and Donnelly were both strong even though Donnelly didn't seem to be throwing to where Doumit was setting up.

    JWDKWWAM*

    I went to sleep after the top of the ninth feeling relatively secure in the victory. Then I dreamt that Dotel walked the bases loaded and Milledge dropped a line drive allowing the Giants to tie it up. Luckily reality wasn't quite that bad.
