Watching the game here in Indiana on Fox Sports Midwest. Reds color guy called Walker's fly ball to the warning track a "popup." I suppose that's true in the Great American Small Park. But still.

love the script of the teams RT...
also love what presley is doing, small things like throwing the ball into second on that sac fly and of course ripping a triple....glad that I had such a great influence on clint hurdle and company by requesting him being called up..

I guess I owe an apology to Clint Barmes. For the past 2 games, I complained to my 18 year old son how upset I was that Jordy Mercer isn't in the lineup. I've used some derogatory comments about Barmes' hitting prowess. But 3 RBI's so far tonight, and the comment from Greg Brown that 13 of Barmes' 27 hits have been extra base hits (9 doubles and 3 HR's), and I feel like I owe Clint an apology. Hopefully he keeps it up and I'll gladly eat all the crow I can fit in my mouth if he helps to propel us during the summer. Nothing would make me happier than to say "I'm sorry" 100 times this year!

And googbye Homer Bailey. Goodness, I hate the Reds! I'll explain some day in an epic post, but I hate them more than any team in any sport at any level.

Let's Go Bucs!

At the very least, he has a stupid name.

Wow, crappy Alex Presley goes to the minors. Three weeks later he's back and looking like 2011 Alex Presley. Hope he keeps it up.

You have to be encouraged seeing Presley respond this way. Other than the bottom of the 1st this has been ridiculously fun.

I cannot get television reception for the game at work today for some reason. Tuned in to see the ESPN "dots" and tuned out when Buccos fell behind 2-0.

I had faith. You guys who have been hounding Clint Barmes owe me one big apology. :?

Raise it up. Hammer was dominant in the 9th. Big, big win.

I was thinking the same thing. Does he have options left? Would a few weeks at AAA be beneficial?

I have said before that I think both Barmes and McGehee have value to this team. If they are going to continue to start Barmes, then Mercer needs to go back down to AAA to play every day.

Just got back from the game. It was great.

Also, I don't know whether this made it to the TV broadcast or not, but Josh Harrison got an epic standing ovation by almost a full half section at Great American when he pinch-hit ... Harrison of course is from Cincinnati and played baseball at UC. Most of the section had on customized "JHAY" jersey t-shirts. It was awesome.

I had also never seen so many Pirates fans at GABP before, or at any away game I've been to.

It did make the TV broadcast. Very impressive. Hilarious shot of his mom after he got brushed back. Fun stuff to watch.

His mom seems like a fun lady...proud Mom...some great stuff with her when his hit won the extra inning game on mothers day!
