There's something I just can't figure out. I hate Victorino. Just seems like he terrozies the Pirates. They said he had 3 rbi's since joining the Dodgers at the deadline. He has 3 in this game. Should've traded the farm for Headley and Victorino. They love PNC park.

Hit the weightroom Cutch!

On another note, sucks that Headley & Victorino come up huge against us.

The problem is we made our surge on the timely hitting of 2 and 3-run homeruns. And we're just not that powerful a club. I, for one, got way way too caught up in the Zoltan hoopla. We just don't hit well enough and the pitching has been, well, exciting. And I mean that in the old Chinese-curse kind of way...

Has Sanchez contributed anything to the cause so far? If he has, I must have been away that day. He certainly is good at grounding into double plays, though.

Since the Chapman near-beaning, Cutch is 7-39, 1 HR, 5 RBI...

Make that 7-40. Still.......

Yeah well....maybe if I tell him it's based on what I see and not some sort of complicated SABR analysis with all sorts of algorithms and theorems, he'll go easy on me.... ;)

The goat tonight pretty much has to be Karstens, right?

Not what the good guys needed from him. Unfortunately.

Oh, well. There's always tomorrow.

The bucs haven't been playing terrible but they just can't seem to get hot consistently. The road ahead was going to be tough starting with opponents that were key when it came to the standings and so far they've whiffed. Cincinnati, dropped a game, whif. Arizona, split, gotta win you're home series, whif. San Diego, beat bad clubs at you're home park, whif. Open up strong against the Dodgers, a team on your heels, whif.

Whif, whew, whif.

Not so bad. Now they have to try and regain control of the series against Billingsley and Kershaw. Ut oh.

Cutch, wake up! Walks, runs and batted balls back to the pitcher are nice but we need more! Painful. It's just a game, afterall. Regardless this has been a special season.

Well, I guess we tried to make it close tonight. Jones certainly did his part, but we just don't have enough oomph at this point. All those well-if-we-go-X-for-X-we'll-still-finish-over-.500 threads are looking a little more ominous this week.

I fully admit to getting caught up in the bandwagon, but we were never the 3rd or 4th team in baseball and the mean is catching up to us. May have to re-frame what a successful season will be, again, only this time downward.

I don't know Val. This team has to have something inside saying don't let this happen again. I feel like it's happening all over again. Bad starting pitching, giving up 4 or 5 runs a start, the bullpen starting to give up runs, the offense coming through from time to time and McCutchen starting to dissapear a little when it comes to the big time clutch gap driving hits.

I'm still holding out hope that this year isn't a repeat of the last two months from a year ago.

Maybe Corriea can come through as a stopper tommorow as he has many times lately. He can't give up many though as Billingsley is very good against the Pirates. Dodgers gained a game but St. Louis didn't. They only gained a half a game.

Karstens wants that hit back he gave up to Harang and Choate wants his balls back. It was that type of game tonight. Victorino fall down the stairs at the hotel tonight.
