Thusfar in their Pirates tenures, Wandy Rodriguez is the anti-A.J. Burnett. The fans really let him have it when he stood in the batter's box and watched his slow roller to 3B.

Wow, eight hits given up in 3 1/3 innings. Granted they are all singles, but still.....

Edit: and there's a double.....

Still Editing: and there's another double and Wandy is pushing 80 pitches for 4 innings. 10 hits 5 runs given up, I'm going to wait Pedro, Cutch and Sanchez out to see if they can do anything, but my time with this game is short, I fear...

That was nice, Cutch. A sight for sore eyes. What's the internet equivalent saying if you're just following the game on GameCast?

Anyone else notice we get zero calls from the umps ever since that terrible umpired series where we got jobbed by the umps on at least a half dozen big, horrible calls in that Cincy series?

Could Brock Holt get his feet wet? Greg Brown was talking about Anderson Hernandez, but I hope not. Known quantity- don't want that quantity.

I'd sooner bring up Navarro.

I was thinking Navarro too. At this point, we would need someone who has the best chance of being successful.

So, dislocated finger...can't you just pop that sucker back in place?

You can, and the Pirates staff probably will, but that could cause collateral damage to the ligaments at the knuckle.

Our defense has been beyond embarrassing.

Stick a fork in this f'n team. Crap starting pitching, relief pitching, defense, and hitting. They keep this up and we may be praying just to finish over .500.

Just returned home from the library. I see Wandy Rodriguez has turned in another fine performance tonight. If my math is correct, that's 30 hits and 15 earned runs in 30-2/3 IP over four starts. Impressive. With a little more effort, he still has a chance to equal Matt Morris' record of 41 hits and 24 earned runs in his first five Pirate starts.

Correct. This is bad and getting worse. Even in April and May when they were struggling they were pitching great and playing solid defense. Now...not so much.

His problem is he doesn't strike people out like he used to. He got blooped and flared to death tonight. Of the 10 hits, I think I counted 3 that were well struck. Having said that, he certainly is looking more like a back end of the rotation guy not a number 3.

With the way we're playing, and looking at the schedule coming up, it's possible we could be hovering right around .500 by Labor Day.... :( :( :(
