I agree with No. 9. Even though McGehee's triple yesterday was a gift (thanks, Matt Kemp!), he's been the only Pirate consistently squaring up the ball and hitting it hard. He needs to play.

If I'm Clint Hurdle, I start McGehee at first base today and Alvarez at third.

I hope this is what we see.

Imany, many times how he thought Tony Watson should have replaced Grilli to face Andre Ethier, because Ethier can't hit lefties...


Yes, and Watson doesn't get them out, either.

I did not have a problem with the way Grilli was pitching. He had just smoked through the first 2 2/3 outs. He left one up a bit, but man was Grilli throwing yesterday.

He was throwing well, both the fastball and the curveball. The home run ball wasn't up, it was down and in, and he had no business being anywhere near there. A walk would have been fine in that situation.
