    Shin-Soo Choo CF
    Ryan Ludwick LF
    Joey Votto 1B
    Brandon Phillips 2B
    Jay Bruce RF
    Todd Frazier 3B
    Zack Cozart SS
    Ryan Hanigan C
    (Johnny Cueto P)

    Pirates lineup:
    Starling Marte CF
    Neil Walker LF
    Andrew McCutchen RF
    Justin Morneau 3B
    Marlon Byrd C
    Pedro Alvarez 1B

    Think about Life of Brian - the Monty Python classic.

    I wonder how many people in the franchise - players, coaches, FO types - are watching tonight. Hope it fires their blood for next year.

    I'll be watching just for the Robbie Inkmikowski update - for old time's sake.

    Thanks for starting this. I asked about it, meant to start it and then had errands I had to get done. Duh. And I missed the first inning.

    Looks like Frankie has it working.

    Just thought it would be fun to talk about real baseball (and something happy) after the lst couple of days of posts!

    Has to be electric in Pittsburgh .... such a long time since they've played in October.

    I remember singing "We Are Family" along with Sister Sledge, Willy and the gang.

    I tuned in to it late and only saw his second inning, and the first called strike on Phillips had me muttering that if the umps had given him the outside strike when he was in Minnesota things might have gone differently. But the rest of that AB and the other two, Liriano completely earned.

    Good for Pitt to strike first.

    The Reds & Pirates have played each other so much recently. Very weird to have a play-in game between the 2 teams.

    What is this "fun" and how long do you have to cook it?

    LOL. I'm from the sticks of Iowa so things like fun-see are pretty foreign to me.

    September was just a really long month -- maybe one of the longest in my 48 years of Twins fandom. And I have a feeling I'll be wathcing a lot more Royals and Cardinals games next summer.

    Cueto needs to rise above it(the chanting crowd) if he wants to have a chance in this game.

    They said that they had Frankie make some changes and it seems they saw something Rick missed.

    If I remember correctly, they said the Pirates were encouraging him to induce more ground balls - pitch to contact.

    Seeing a little of everything here. Including a great catch there.

    Bit of a loss of composure, eh? Could kind of see that Martin homerun coming.
