Dickey gives up his share of hits and base runners. It takes the knuckle ball a while to get to home plate - Tabata, Harrison and McCutchen need to run.

I predict no patience at the plate again. I predict the Pirates will be out in front swinging and missing or swinging and missing at balls in the dirt all night long, while standing there and taking perfectly hittable pitches for strikes.

Sounds like a normal Pirate offense doesn't it? :roll:

A Cutch needs to make contact in the 1st. G Jones is just struggling at the plate right now. Im a big Jones fan, but give Diaz some at bats so Jones can get out of this funk. Already frustrated and on beer 5

A Cutch - What another failure AB there. Guy isnt even coming close to making contact with the ball. Early goat for the game!

If A Cutch comes up the next time with Dickey still pitching, please pinch hit for him. He doesnt have a clue tonight where the ball is going.

I started a personal drinking game this year when watching the Pirates. Have to slam a beer or do a shot with every strike out. It's the end of May and my liver is toast and I'm meeting Charlie Sheen in rehab.

Why was Wood substituted for JH at 3rd?

I was being sarcastic. I have no idea. I don't know anything about Harrison's defense.

Worked out though.

Anybody who tried that game would be dead. The alcohol content of the remains would be so high that the hearse driver would need a designated driver.

Seems like you guys are getting pretty blase about our starting pitching - no mention of McDonald's fine performance.
I believe that was the 12th consecutive game where Pirates' starters have given up no more than two runs.
Who would have thought it? :shock:

Did you guys see the fire in Harrison's eyes when he got up after sliding into second? THAT is what I like to see. That kid was hustling. Nice piece of hitting to score the run, going the other way with authority.

And yeah, Wood had a 2 RBI single. But man, it was another horrible swing and he got lucky. I think we've seen enough of Wood. I had hopes he might find his minor league form, but I'm thinking he's a head case.

Not to be overly critical of Harrison but I thought that his attempt to take second base on Beltran's throw was a bit overaggressive. The result was good but I cringed at how close the play was with the go ahead run already at third and Cutch on deck.

Made close only by the bizarre throwing decision of the RF'er. If he goes home, like I suppose Harrison expected, its a no brainer, IMO.
