Ryan Church....No hit.
I would have rather saw Aki stay then Church.

OK, well, 11 in a row. Didja know that last year as of this date they were 31-34 and were only 5-1/2 games out of first place?

I know, I know -- that was an almost completely different cast of characters. But, ah, the memories.

Sigh. Maybe they can salvage one of the three games this weekend vs. Cleveland.

Tonight's game illustrated a quandary for me. Would I rather we get blown out so I can go do something else by 8:30, or would I rather see us "cardiac it up" late so I sit glued to the screen only to be crest fallen when Ryan Church enters the on deck circle.

Hmmmm....

My two boys are still young enough to not understand the implications of being bad over the course of 162 games, they see each game as one distinct event, unrelated to the rest. Everything is relegated to are they doing "good" or "bad"?. After I explained to them that the Pirates were in the midst of a 10 game losing streak, my youngest thought that "wasn't a good thing" before focusing back on the game at hand, here, in the now, no concern what-so-ever about the possibility of it extending to 11 the losing streak. If only I could get myself to approach every game like that.......

Anyhow, if anyone was watching, was that swinging third strike on Church to end the game one of the worst swings you've EVER seen? Or is it just me? I truly hope that the return of Pearce is the end of the Church.

It would be funny if there was a Lucifer on the 40 man roster and got to replace Church on the Major League Club...

Jesus might have a tough time hitting a curve ball, but I bet Satan would hit the Hell out of it...
