Hi guys. I can't see the game but I just saw the video clip of Pedro's high throw to first on Gameday.
Did Overbay make any effort to grab that ball? I wonder if he couldn't have caught that.

About to watch the Indians-White Sox on TV. I hope Fausto Carmona pitches well.


Ollie...nobody answered your question. The answer is no. I am not sure if he misjudged it, or he was too worried about keeping his foot on the bag...but he certainly could have had it!


To me, it looked like the throw sailed. Overbay was keeping his foot on the bag to make the play, but the ball kept rising.

Pedro REALLY looked bad in the field today on 4 different plays.

From now on, when a pop-up is hit to the left side of the infield, I hope the pitcher calls for it.

Yeesh, that fiasco when Correia got a nothing pop-up with the leadoff batter in the 7th was brutal. If the Pirates play good defense, they win 6-1.

yeah....the pop-ups were the only ugly stain on an otherwise great day. On the bright side...I had to watch the Cubs feed...so listening to Brenly talk about how bad the Pirates are, only to get real quiet from the 5th inning on...loved Correia's game and though Meek and Hanrahan looked great! Game on.

Ugh....The Cubs broadcast is maddening.

It drives me crazy. There could be an inside the park home run happening, but they're still talking with the head of the Girl Scout troop that stopped by the booth.

If Joel Hanrahan is going to walk people with a three run lead, start giving the ball to Meek

Don't like the walks, but it is what it is with Hanrahan. He's throwing 98-99 mph in cool weather.

Was it just me, or did it look like his fastball was showing a lot more movement than it did last year?

Strike three to Byrd and the pitch that got a ground ball from Ramirez showed very definite, late movement.
