That will be interesting to see. Perhaps being surrounded by the team's best hitters will help him.

I do hate these 8:05 starts, though.

Hopefully batting 2nd will force him to focus more. Hopefully he'll walk more instead of striking out. Hopefully he'll get more hits.

PS: Did I say hopefully? :roll: :? 8-)

I hate 8 o clock starts as well. Hopefully the game moves quickly in the pirates favor

Here’s how I’d position the line-up tonight (for righty/lefty, speed and in honor of Brandon Wood’s above .800 OPS thus far in June):

LF Tabata
RF Jones (L)
CF McCutchen
2B Walker (S)
3B Wood
1B Overbay (L)
C McKenry
SS Cedeno
P Karstens

Maybe the Pirates feel that Brandon Wood's free-swinging ways make him suitable to bat 8th. The pitcher is going to nibble with anybody on base and Karstens on deck, so a hitter who can put the ball in play on pitches that are not "perfect" may be a good guy to bat 8th.

With that pop out by McKenry just now, guess the production of Buc catchers since Chris Snyder hurt his back last week.

Wait, I'll answer it for you: 2-for-29 (.069) -- both singles by Dusty Brown.

Go back and look at all the posts complaining about him.

With his very good May, I was wondering when we'd see good 'ole Sucky Ronny Cedeno again. Well, here he is, waving at pitches way out of the strike zone and looking vaguely confused at the plate. Just try to keep your head on straight in the field, Ronny...

Oops, my bad. Went back and looked and Brown's two hits came before Snyder got hurt. So, offensive production by Pirate catchers since then: zip, zero, nothing.

Garrett Jones needs to learn about base stealing.

1. Don't slide head first into second.
2. Don't slide five feet early.

He looked like Willie Mays Hayes in Major League. He would have been safe if he just did it right.

Fundamentals. Very poor.

The Cedeno in the two-spot experiment is officially over after one game. Wood would be a better choice right now the way he is hitting the ball.

Cedeno's gone at the plate. Awful.

If the Bucs bring up d'Arnaud soon, maybe it'll light another fire underneath Ronny, like the Wood acquisition did. If it doesn't, just play d'Arnaud.

Ronny had a great May, but right now he looks like he is back in April swinging and lunging at god know's what.

Holy F'n golf swing Garrett. The ball bounced in front of the plate.

Overbay and Jones, swinging at pitches well out of the zone to strike out with men on first and second.

*Sigh*
