Questioning Clint Hurdle's decision not to let McDonald start the 7th inning. Why does it seem that Clint Hurdle has been getting questioned alot recently?

I don't have a problem. As someone mentioned earlier. McDonald was done. What you can question is bringing in Resop. If we lose this game, you can still point some fingers at the offense, but let's face it, if you have two-run leads in the late innings and you can't hold it, that's unacceptable.

I agree bb........Resop two fails in a row now. Not mention no offense and key hits and screwing up another bunt play.

How does a slow moving catcher get home safe from 2nd on a freaking bunt play? UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!

Im starting to think Resop just had a lucky beginning to the season. The guy throws hard, but guys are teeing off on him now because all he has is a fastball. Im freaking pissed right now, but I also blame the Pirates offense for not producing more runs with the bases loaded. Wood has been terrible with the bat today!

Give Mills credit from the Astros, too. He has been pushing the right buttons. Sends his catcher on a steal on that play and it ends up a run. Wood and Walker both screwed up. Hurdle not so much this series. I think one hit and run worked all series and it was luck as Snyder hit it hard enough, the guy covering second still couldn't get to it.

If they lose today and lose the series, it is a step in the wrong direction. And if they lose the series to the Dodgers, then it could be another long season.

Yes, indeed. I think the entire 162 game season hinges on these next two innings.

How in the hell does Hurdle not get himself tossed after that McCutcheon catch? I would have gone nuts and it just cost them a run and probably the game. Way to go Clint! Thought you argued better than that for your players! You definitely have failed me today!

I get that playing .500 ball is not the goal, as Hurdle says. But, %&$!, to play better than .500, you've got to get to .500 first. And if they lose this game, it will be the third time in less than a week that they could have evened their record . . . only to fail. For heaven's sake, people, get over the damned hump, will ya?!?!

When trailing entering the 7th inning, the Pirates have only come back to win one game so far this season and that was Game 3 when they trailed 4-3 and scored 2 runs to beat the Cubs. The offense has not gotten it done in the late innings. And the bullpen now has blown the last three losses (if we lose this one). Otherwise, we would have a seven-game winning streak after today. Crotta, Beimel and Resop have been the culprits.

I don't think I'll ever say anything negative about Ryan Doumit ever again! Nice job! Big Home Run!

PS: I think he's performing better now that he isn't playing every day.

I went from being pissed off to overcome with joy when Doumit hit that ball. That is why I love baseball and the Pirates right there!

Snyder and Doumit are going to put up some nice numbers sharing playing time...
