Didn't see a game thread, it's already the 5th, so no lineups

Pretty quick game. Wandy pitching a 1-hitter + 4 Ks, 0 BBs, and 0 ERs.

So no Pens on Root due to the terrorist (being caught and killed now, yay), so we get to see the Bucs game on a night when few would want to venture to the ball park. I was just watching this Gattis guy bat, they showed footage of him flipping the bat angrily after hitting a bomb out the park, and all I could think was, STEROIDS!!! Lots of guys on this Atlanta team look like they're reaching the height of their cycles right now, actually.

Yeah, I'm loving Wandy. Such a great pickup. Speaking of awful pickups, though, it's time for Barmes to go. Anyone is better than him at this point, besides McDonald, of course. Please, please bring up Jordy. I'm enjoying Travis Snider and Tabata also this year.

Snider continues to impress, and Garrett goes the other way for 2 runs.

What times does the game start? Anxious to see if Wandy is rusty.

Wandy's a rock.

Thank God the bats are back (Martin, Pedro, Snider AND Tabata?! :shock: ).

Diggin' the duck talk.

I think that was against Halliday and last night Walkie said he wondered what happened in his NEXT at bat!

Here is the way I look at it. If the Bucs can continue to hit...and they can put a formidable lineup out there everywhere BUT short...the we can live with the great D from short. No?

yeah, I hear you. Mercer, though is batting .308 in Indy with OPS of .862, so that looks a lot better than .111/.300 of Barmes that you get. I guess I just don't understand why we continue to sign and keep guys like McDonald and Sanchez who clearly stink when you have guys who are clearly younger and better now. I know Barmes won't be gotten rid of, but can't we kind of transition Mercer into that starting role? It's so early in the season, it is good for Mercer to get ABs in the minors, but by the middle of the year, I'd really like to see Mercer here and taking starts away from Barmes gradually.

Wandy is pitching a gem. I think him pitching in the baseball classic certainly helped.

Agreed snider has been hitting well.

making the hannrahan trade look pretty solid, add pimental strong showing in the minors and it looks like a steal

Pirates management team certainly knows how to build a solid bullpen. You have to give them that!

Cards lost, Reds just went down to the Phish.

It sucks that the Cards game was rained out... could have a share of first right now.

Nonetheless, great game tonight!

Bring on Maholm!
