If I could replace Barmes with Harrison I'd love the lineup too.

Go Buccos!

Buccos...just score one more run than the Giants. That will make me happy!

Was looking back at my copy of Lindy's preseason magazine at the scouting reports for Pirate starters and bench players. Of McKenry it said: "Overachiever. Slow bat and no power." :) :)

I friggin' love Steve Blass. He was mid-sentence when they cut to a female shaking her money maker's. He paused a second, said "I'm distracted" and proceeded to continue on his story. Classic!

How many shots off the top of the wall can the Pirates have?!? Wow! Nice shot by Pedro.

Pedro goes OPPOSITE way for an RBI double (Just missed a dinger). The reason I bring this up is obvious. But as I was watching the 3-0 and 3-1 pitches, Vogelsong put the ball in the exact same spot, outside corner (struck out on the same pitch the previous at-bat). I am thinking if he goes opposite field, he can hit this out. He did exactly what he needed to do . A big step in his evolution. (By the way, Vogelsong has really great control. Too bad he got it four years later)

I love how the fans chant M-V-P every time Cutch comes to the plate. I think it's time for them to start chanting Cy Young every time James McDonald comes up.

J-Mac dealing today. On a side note, McKenry is calling a fantastic game. Really keeping hitters guessing with 4 different kinds of pitches. Let's finish this.

I agree that he is the Overachiever-type, but look at his numbers in the minors...he has always had power. His career OPS in the minors was over .800 and he had double digit HR's every full year in the minors (including 22 one year).

On a side note, when did Pedro start using the "Stargell Wheel" in his plate approach? Must be new. I think it a great timing mechanism, though.
