Why does Sheldon insist on playing position players out of position. Infielders playing outfield and visa-versa, as if he’s looking for all around utility guys. I don’t understand. Before game interview with nutty butter contracts he loves playing the kids but keeps signing veterans from the junk pile while they wait in minors. Well to late to worry about it anymore this year. I just hope we don’t see this style of management next year. Just mho

This is probably the reason the Pirates lead the majors in errors.

RAISE IT!!

Nice to end the final road game with a W.

Bucs 7 Cards 5

Bucs finish 28-53 on the road this season. Only the Royals and Rockies will finish with worse road records.

Bucs catch the Reds for 4th in the division.

Pirates wrap up the season with 3 at home against the Cards

Reds finish the season with 3 home games against the Cubs

Pirates literally walk it off

Cruz draws a 4 pitch walk in the bottom of the 9th with bases loaded.

Suwinski tied it up with a solo shot in the 8th, his 19th of the year.

Bucs 3 Cards 2

Bucs improve to 61-99

Need the sweep to avoid 100 losses.

Gallegos takes so much time between pitches, I think even the umpire fell asleep and didn't know that was ball 4.

Brubaker takes a beating in the third.

The last time I saw a beating like that, someone shoved a banana down my pants and turned a monkey loose.

Wilson relieves Brubaker in the third, walks one and finally shuts the door on the Hated cArds.

3-1 St. Louis after 2 1/2

I don’t know what got into Pujols, cream or clear, but he is playing like he is 28 again.

Hudson takes a pounding in the 3rd.

Bucs send 12 to the plate, pound out 8 hits scoring 6 runs.

Hudson hits the showers.

Bucs do leave the bases loaded.

7-3 Pirates lead after 3 complete
