Most un-clutch 2 run homer ever. Bay is a bum.

You must be thinking of a different guy. James this year had a 7.62 ERA in 3 starts, allowing 14 hits, 7 walks and 11 runs in 13 innings.

Freddy's throws are horrible tonight. I have no doubt his shoulder is injured. Several tosses have barely made it to Laroche.

You have to wonder if Jack wasn't injured whether they would consider putting him on the DL. However, with Jack already out, I imagine sitting Freddy is an absolute last resort.

Pirates have gotten some big hits when needed. Paulino drives one to the fence with two out, two on to give the Buccos a 3-run lead.

Go Jason Michaels. 2-3 with 2 runs scored.

Its a good thing we got Michaels, cuz Morgan couldn't cut it and Nate is nothing but a 5th OFer...

Michaels with 3 hits, including two ropes. Nice that McLouth is given a day off and his substitute plays a huge role in driving the offense.

Greg Brown and Steve Blass were saying Freddy was the guest on Rocco's radio post game show lastnight and Freddy said his shoulder is really flaring up again

He had a weak throw in the San Fran series turning the double play...And there was a play tonight where he took the throw to 2nd but didnt even make an attempt to try turning the DP...

Osoria? I am not a fan of bringing him into a game where the lead is less than 5 runs. Or when the Pirates are trailing. Or when a white ball with red stitches is used.

He did it, DP...but Freddy almost bounced it to 1st...We're in trouble if a day or two off doesnt help him...

Since I'm always after Bay, let me say that I'm glad Bay is having a great game. He sure has been clutch tonight. But it takes more games to suggest he's good in the clutch.

How about Micheals-- looks like a good addition
Paulino like Bay making this "the" game for him too.

Freddy needs rest for his arm. He just can't play like this long. Probably the reason his average is off this season.

Gorzo had a much better start but he is not near last year. They tended to hit at'em balls but was much improved, and hope for him getting back his form.

How about that DP record? We are first by a goodly margin.

The DP numbers are scary and lucky because of all the walks we've given up this year...

5-2 Pirates

Weren't we among the leaders in turning DP's last year as well? I think it is more a function of having a bunch of pitchers on the staff who pitch to contact but are ground ball pitchers. The result is that we put a lot of people on, but get a lot of ground balls to double them off. Of course, Jack Wilson helps a lot (last year). But the fact that we are leading again this year with rather lousy defense up the middle suggest pitching is a bigger factor than defense.

The Braves botched two sac bunts tonight. Both were hit too hard, fielded well by Gorzo and resulted in the demise of the lead runner. Also, give credit to Gorzo for a clutch snag on a hard liner right back at him which resulted in a DP. Pitchers help their cause when they play the field competently. Paul Maholm take note...

The pick-up of Michaels sure looks like a smart move (almost oxymoronic in the context of past Pirates' trades!).

You noticed that as well? I'm sure a few people wouldn't mind if the first page of this thread got hacked.

JR is an idiot.
