Being positive works...bombs away by Snider....5-1 Bucs.

That was a no-doubter too. Glad he finally blasts one. He's been putting the ball in play since he got here, so it's nice to see some of that power potential come to fruition.

So much for being positive. :roll: J-F!@#ING-Mac blows a 7-1 Pirate lead to the "lowly" Padres.

I just don't know about these starting pitchers for the Pirates. I have my doubts. :?

PS: And this game still my point to that 1st inning, if the Pirates lose, because of them not being able to score with NO OUTS and runners on 1st and 3rd. :roll:

JMac is toast..mentally. I don't know if he will bounce back from this one. Maybe time for a DL stint to clear his head.

McDonald has become beyond frustrating. He is now officially infuriating.

Jesus, that's brutal. I agree that he needs about 15 days off. Give Correia the starts (can't believe I just said that).

Bullpen blows it again.

And it all started with a two-out walk to someone nobody has ever heard of. Shame on you Tony Watson. Shame on you.

Just got home recently. How did JMac look from second through the 4th inning? What happened then?

The bullpen now has given up 12 runs in just over 12 innings on this homestand.

Hughes, Grilli and Watson have all blown leads.

McDonald imploded, Animal. Blew a 7-1 lead in one inning. He was pitching batting practice by the time they took him out.

I know that...but what I meant was did he look as good and the stats SEEM in innings 2-4..then did he start getting wild, or what??

Well, he set down 11 hitters in a row, 4 by strikeouts, if that's what you're asking. With only one ball leaving the infield (caught by McCutchen with his back to the wall).

Could this be the beginning of the end? Something doesn't feel right. Maybe because our starting pitchers (except AJ) and bullpen are starting to suck. :x

I didn't think these starting pitchers (again except AJ) were going to last for the long haul and they are starting to prove me right.

How ironic. It's the offense that has come on to save the day when they were terrible at the beginning of the year and it's the pitching that is falling flat on it's face (except for AJ) when the pitching was exceptional at the beginning of the year.

If this is the beginning of the end, I still feel very good about this team and how far they have come. To be this far above .500 and in the playoff race at this point is really remarkable.

Whatever happens from now until the end of the season I would like to say now that I thank the Pirates for making baseball, Pirate baseball, fun again.

All right. Cutch leading off the 8th. He needs to show some leadership here. Right now.

I'm not trying to be the "I told you so" guy, but when the Lincoln/Snider deal happened.....I was worried. Long relief is important in a pennant chase and the last few games, it's looking like we needed Lincoln more than we realized.

7-1 vs an awful team at home. Hard to believe this is really happening. Disgusting stuff.

Just to keep things in perspective: Worst case scenario, even if we don't come back and win this game, we're still 2 1/2 games up in the Wild-Card race.

Breathe, folks.

Lincoln is one pitcher. All of your pitchers but Hammer are blowing leads and games so I don't really see the connection.

F This Ump. Another idiot. Pedro gets four balls and it's a 2-2 count. It's embarrassing to baseball.
