What happened to Alvarez? Saw there was an "injury delay" on Gameday and he was replaced by a pinch-runner.


Wehner thought it was cramps due to the heat!

With all due respect, I don't quite get this. In the big picture winning the series doesn't mean anything. If they have a chance for a sweep they need to go for it. Every game counts for the Pirates.


It's regarding McCutchen's injury, not a regular day off.


In a 162 game season you have to look at everything as one series at a time. Win you clinch the series early, and you have guys that are either banged up or haven't had a day off in a while you take the oppertunity to give it to them. Who knows, you may start splitting the first 2 games and then they may not have a chance for a month or more.

Combine that with the heat over the past few days and it's a no brainer.

Would sure hate to lose a game in which Ft. Mc Henry hits a three run dinger. Who is St. Louis' closer anyway?
(And why are the Brewers wearing green jerseys right now?)

Ugh. Tabata.


Seriously. Runner on 3rd with less than two outs and he can't get the runner in. Now he taps it to the pitcher (again) and hits into a DP. Unreal.


It's unreal how many times he's the one at the plate when a critical hit is needed. He's really the one guy other than the pitcher in the lineup I really don't want up there in those situations right now, and yet it seems to ALWAYS end up being him. Sigh.
