McCutchen just flies down the line...hell down any line. Should be a nice feel good win for the Bucs heading into a massive weekend series.

Hanrahan up to his old tricks again. Sheesh. Can this man never be decisive?

Well, I'm really glad we got those insurance runs.

mmm tough call. He has pretty much done all they expected of him. Been good with pitching staff. Unless Sanchez really started to light it up at AAA, I think I'd bring Barajas back to play maybe 30-40% of games. Having two good catchers, both above average defensively, plus some offense, is a real plus.

One person who would object to reducing Barajas's playing time would be AJ Burnett. AJ is particularly fond of Barajas's work behind the dish going back to their days in Toronto.



Let Barajas catch for Burnett (and probably McDonald since he mimics AJ). That gives McKenry 3 out of 5. Keeps Barajas fresh too.

McKenry had some pop in the minors, so this isn't fluky. 69 HR's in 2100+ ab's, slugging .453. Not HR Derby-type power, but not a punch-and-judy type either.

I'm still not sure why Hammer was even in there with a 7 run lead...

The radio guys (Brown-Wehner) pretty much said that is what has been going on since the All-Star Break. McKenry is pretty much the starter.

Hanrahan needed some work, so they're letting him pitch batting practice. :?

Anybody else worried about Joel? I mean, his numbers are OK, but he seems to be giving up a LOT recently.

You know, it's wild how often the Bucs have done this all year. NO OFFENSE. NO OFFENSE. NO OFFENSE. THEN BOOM!

We are the masters of the timely homerun.
