Why did Russell pull Duke?


Because his wife had a headache?

Um, er...never mind.

That 8th inning was one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen, and I don't throw sentences like that around loosely. Up 3-0, the only time any of the hitters had made contact resulted in two outs, and the bullpen gives up 5 walks and walk in 2 runs. JimY summed it up well enough in The Pub ... "they should trade Zach Duke just to be nice to the poor guy. I know the look on his face right now from the many times we've seen it".

I mean, I don't care that Penn was pitching before, that was almost as ugly as the 15-run inning or whatever it was. There are no words. I am speechless ... I am literally without speech.


This is about the best way I could sum up that 8th inning as well.

To walk home two runs... inexcusable. I almost wish the pitcher had given up a hit/HR... at least then I know he's challenging the hitter or he thinks his stuff will get the job done---something!

Glad the Bucs pulled out the win in the end. Not pretty and an eventual wasted effort by El Duche, but still a win to put in the column.

Back to .500. And while the W-L back and forth annoys me, it's still better than dropping 3+ in a row.

I'll take what given at this point.
