What a strike zone this Ump has for the Bucs. Are you kidding me? Jones should have had a walk in the 10th!

Can't take this futility anymore. Hope the Bucs win, but I'm done. I'm off to get some sleep.

thought Tabata hit a routine fly ball there, but it ended up hitting the RF fence. Good baserunning by Rodriguez!

Good job by the rookie to draw what looked like a harmless walk with 2 outs in 14th. But he had to score there. He had to be running immediately! Good win

He crushed three balls tonight. If it is July, he probably has a 3-HR game.

Two outes, boro. Ball clanged high off the wall, away from the RF'er. He could have walked home.

I was sitting there thinking "No way he's going to score on that..." but he did.

It was a frustrating game to watch, though. Too many of those innings ended with a K. The last time we got Overbay/Jones/Alvarez up, I'm thinking "Okay, here comes the walkoff...." and then we get a walk, a double play, and a K.

With three awesome guys at the front of the lineup, I grow more and more worried that we're going to have trouble bringing them home with all of these K's. I'll give Pedro the first month to settle in, but by May he's gotta be producing something other than strikeouts.

The guys on the radio were talking how could Tracy pitch to Tabata when the bench is empty and the pitcher's spot is next...

Up yours Jim!!!

He'll throw his pitcher under the bus by saying that the pitching coach gave him specific instructions on how to pitch Tabata, but the pitcher went out and ignored the instructions.

If only he had Cesar Izturis, Jose Hernandez and a couple other castoffs from the 2004 Dodgers, this never would've happened.

I was reading that Andrew was on deck while Tabata was at the plate...possibly as a decoy?..so Tabata wouldn't draw an intentional walk! You can't bat out of turn..but I guess there's no rule about being on deck out of turn. That was freaking brilliant.
