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


Plouffe would have made it look easy. :)

1. Think about Johnny Cueto. He couln't quite put it together as a Twin and tonight, he still can't put it together.

How come these lineups aren't littered with guys who were playing in independent leagues last year?

Doesn't seem like the same game we've been watching.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

I think I've seen that whiff before, though.

Yeah, but we've the Reds' setup man, in Burton. They can just eat their hearts out. And if the Pirates need a #5 starter in this game, well, we've got theirs - too bad for them, no backsies.

Is Frankie going to implode in the 4th, like he did with us?

I looked up his career splits, and sure enough, the 4th inning was easily his worst.

I don't keep up with the National League and was about to ask whether the Pirates lost any games this season, but this statistic gives me pause.

And here we go, HBP on an 0-1 count.



I think that qualifies as an "oops."

Followed immediate by their first hit.


Don't do it Frankie, don't do it.

Followed by a steady diet of "good ****ing luck hitting this" pitches.

No, I'd rather not. :)

Wow! Dozier has really let himself go in the off-season!


Yeah, ugh, Willi's avatar hurts my eyes. Hmm ... I do have special powers now .. I could do something about it ... but won't.

Hernandez/Escobar for a guy starting the NL WC game.

Yep, just two starters on each roster I believe. GOing to be a lot of micromanaging from here on out.
